Documents and Settings Folder - "Access Denied"
Posted on 2004-11-23
OS - Windows XP Professional SP1
DISK - 2 x 80GB SATA HDD on Silicon 3112s RAID 0 (Onboard Controller)
It happened my system was crashed after a hard reboot, then it can't get into Window anymore, tried the Safe Mode but no help. Becasue the OS is on SATA Raid 0, so i can not take out the hard drive and plug into other system to retrieve some very important data from C:\Documents and Settings folder eg. My Documents. So, I attached a spare IDE hdd into the system and load a new xp on it, when installation done, i tried to access those folders from the new OS, but it keep tell me "Access is Denied", I believe this is the Microsoft NTFS security issue, i also tried to login as administrative or change those folders access prermission, still doesn't work.......
I search Internet and lots of people recommend to use linux live CD, they can fully access NTFS partition and by-pass those securities. I tried "Knoppix", too bad it can not read my SATA RAID 0 functionally becasue the kernel identify my RAID array to 2 separate hdd.... I also tried to ghost the SATA RAID partition to the IDE HDD partition but unlucky the ghost process hang in the middle two times in the road.
Thanks x 1000000 if you can help me out.
