Hi

After restarting my pc, windows 8.1 tried to repair HDD
That failed.... it just stayed on the screen for ages
I waited for a long time...however, now i've given up, and just need to access the files

I've plugged it into another computer but get this
loc
i've tried the whole security this to change owner, however, it says changing permissions but never does
it just shows this popup box but nothing ever happens (i tried with administrator and also with everyone on a different occasion)
permmos
what can i try next to get access to my files

Most easy thing is to boot up a knoppix or other live linux cd on the pc with the drive and access the files from the live system. Linux will not obey any NTFS ACLS and you have full access to all files and folders.

knoppix can be obtained from here: http://knopper.net/
