Changing "directory permission" on salvaged laptop c:drive, now desk-top ext. HD, after recent winXP SP2 security enhancements.
Posted on 2004-11-28
I removed 2.5" HD c-drive from Toshiba laptop because of unstable behavior, later found to be corrupt XP sys files. Toshiba OEM recovery disk is available, but laptop is not available. Subject HD is in an externalhousing w/firewire to Sony desktop running XP SP2. I'm unable to move or view my documents on the subject drive - directory tree seems to be OK. Access is denied" is posted whenever I try to gain access as "Administrator." I've been unable to replace directory permission (probably because of recent SP2 closure of security holes). Any ideas re: access? - - - Thanks in advance.
