Hi,

In Vista Ultimate how can i set the files to be saved on the Root C drive?
By default it says access denied.
Is there a way to just allow this?

>>>>>By default it says access denied.

Are you logged on as a local admin? or just a regular user. If you are a regular user, you are going to need to log on as an admin, and grant that right to your user.
