    I have 2 installed windows partitions, which i am currently dual booting:

    c:\windows
    d:\windows

    now, something has gone wrong with the d: installation, and for some reason this is no longer bootable. now this isnt a problem, cos i was getting rid of this anyway (i will format this partition once ive solved my problem, so im not interested in recovering it)

    i have some files in d:\documents and settings which i would like to get to

    now, my prolem is that i keep getting a message
    "d:\documents and settings\viv\ is not accessible.  Access is denied"
    Does anyone know how i can get rid of this, and get to my docs?

    ok thanks for the reply
    the thing is its the permissions to access that folder on d drive.
    try rebooting in safe mode and logging in as an admin then see if you access it.

    go to the one which boot ups.

    you must have admin priveledges.

    right click My Computer

    click the advanced tab

    go to the settings of the startup and recovery (its the third box)

    then click edit for system startup options.


    you do something in their but i have never edited that.

    thats the most i can help man.

    hope i have helped
