I am new to posting on the site and I have searched for this issue but come up blank. Here is my problem I am attempting to recover data from a hard drive that is failing - no partition found. I have been able to scan and mount the partition (NTFS) and I have recovered the public folders, the issue is with the other two user folders, I see they are write protected, I am unable to remove the write protection or grant my self even read access to the folders. I have mounted them as I said and made an image of the partition which is what I am working on, but of course the two folders are not copying to the image as I do not have permission to access them.
The Drive is an 80 Gig partitioned and formatted NTFS with Windows XP, I have tried a rescue CD in the system with no luck and now I have the drive in a an external dock on a different system running Win 7 (I am using my Admin Acct.
This seems to be an issue like the Ransome ware infections where users lose access to their data, any suggestions welcome and greatly appreciated.
