    Help. The other day I reinstalled MS XP Pro on my computer. I'm now unable to enter my old user folder in the 'documents and settings' folder, I'm being told that its 'not accessible'. This is folder has a lot of work of mine that I need. Under properties the folder seems empty but the amount of space on my hard drive hasn't change and using the demo of a data recovery program I can see that the files are still there. Is there any way the I can recover these files?
    The path for the folder is "C:\Documents and Settings\greg"

    Thank you

    You should be able to access that folder running as the administrator of the PC.
