A friend of mine backed up their Windows XP system using NT Backup choosing the option "Backup Everything". They saved the file (44GB) to their External HD and then I setup a new pc for them Windows XP Pro SP2, NTFS. I then did a restore using NT Backup and chose the file and restored it to the D drive on the PC. When the restore finally finished and then I opened the folder I got the general error message "You do not have permissions to.....contact your administrator".
I cant remember the exact error message but it was because she didnt have permissions. I then added her user account to that folder on the security tab (gave her full control) and still having the same problem.
Any help?
Thanks!

Hi,

Since you are on a new box, you would have wanted to go under the advanced options on NT Backup and select the restore without permissions option. Then, if special permissions are needed, go through and apply them separately.

At this point you could just go ahead and re-do the restore, or alternatively go , disable simple file sharing, take ownership of all the files, and then restore any special permissions that might be required.
Note that you have to take ownership first....make sure that on the advanced tab you replace permission entries on child objects and allow these to propagate through the directory structure.
