Can't copy files from slave drive to data drive.
Posted on 2006-06-20
I had 2 drives My primary, (lets call PRIME) running XP home, and a slave (call Data). the OS on Prime crashed, so I installed a temporary primary drive (call Temp), running XP pro. My plan was to set PRIME as a slave,along with DATA, and using Temp to run the OS, and copy all files from Prime into Data. I would then remove Temp, reformat Prime, and copy the necessary files back into Prime.
During the Copy process, I'm halted at the Documents and settings folder on PRIME. I am told that I don't have permission to copy te file. Normally, I would right click on the folder, and change it's ownership, but I am not given a 'security' tab to work with. The info on the drive is urgently needed, and I'm running out of ideas.
Does anyone have any ideas?
