Windows 8.1 install, xp drive unable to access documents & settings folder
Posted on 2014-12-15
I installed Windows 8.1 Pro, Windows 8 upgraded to WIndows 8.1 Pro on a Workstation with Windows XP installed. I performed a Custom/Advanced not an upgrade. What happened is it has created kind of a dual boot, Windows 8.1 and Previous version of Windows. It did not create a Windows.old or migrate the user in documents and settings to the Users folders. I cannot see Documents and Settings but I know it is there but I receive Access Denied. If I boot to the Previous version of Windows I receive a Console Recovery Window, I log in a Administrator but when I access Documents and Settings I receive Access Denied again.
I have tried to change attributes with the Attrib command, access denied.
Anyone had this issue before and know a solution?
