sharing program files in windows xp
Posted on 2008-10-06
I saved files off a hard drive on to a usb drive. I then reformated hd and reinstalled windows, drivers and software. I copied old program files over new program files. on such program was in program files folder the other was not. just under c:/ after copying old files over new files. I could not access the shares of these files. I tried taking ownership, setting permissions. Oddly creator owner permissions can't be set. I solved this problem with the program that was outside program files, by renaming folder and reinstall the program then just copying in the data files. but this didn't work for the program within the program files folder. how can we overcome this ownership access problem.
