error msg So why can't I copy from my backup disk to a drive that has nothing presently on it? The CD backup used to pose no problems. I'll admit is has a wide variety of files, but this error is now consistantly showing. I intended to send the files to an empty HD and sort them out from there. Why can't I? I used to be able to copy the entire thing. I've tried to select individual files and copy one at a time...that doesn't work either. :thumbsup:

This problem happens if you copy files to cd-r with admin priv
and at a later date you reinstall XP any copys that you make
before you need to boot in to safe mode admin account and take
ownership of said file have some info some on this will look for it
and then post it to you
all the best

How to take ownership of a file
Note You must be logged on to the computer with an account that has administrative credentials.
Hi mate

To take ownership of a file, follow these steps:
Right-click the file that you want to take ownership of, and then click Properties.
Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message (if one appears).
Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.
In the Name list, click Administrator, or click the Administrators group, and then click OK.

The administrator or the Administrators group now owns the file. To change the permissions on the files and folders under this folder, go to step 5.
Click Add.
In the Enter the object names to select (examples) list, type the user or group account that you want to give access to the file. For example, type Administrator.
Click OK.
In the Group or user names list, click the account that you want, and then select the check boxes of the permissions that you want to assign that user.
When you are finished assigning permissions, click OK.
