OK.. so my Win 7 notebook crashed, I have to transfer files from My Documents to an XP machine while it gets fixed... but I can't access the files on the notebook drive because Windows 7's new approach to file permissions won't let me just get in like XP would have.... even when the drive is mounted as an external on an XP system.

I like the new approach to security - it just seems like, as usual, the ones that are paying for it are .. well, us..

Thanks!  wj
