I am pulling my hair out.
I reformatted the c drive, and reinstalled a slipstream winxpsp2-pro but upgraded to a new slipsteam of the same op-sys. Basically i updated my slipstream disk to the latest KB updates, and included a winamp package, winrar package, JRE runtime pack, and firefox pack, BUT, and this is a BIG BUT, I USED A DIFFERENT USERNAME AS WELL. pLESE KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN READING ABOUT THE PROBLEM I AM HAVING BELOW AS IT MAY HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH A PERMISSION PROBLEM OR SOMETING.
I keep all my data on a seperate hard drive from the op-sys.
basically i have my structure
before i wiped out the old system the old documents folder on teh G drive that was attached as a system folder to the last op-sys was named g:\data\user1's documents and now i renamed it to a more suitable g:\data\documents as i am using a different username. the old username wasnt applicable anymore. I wanted to get rid of that stupid windows naming so just named it PLAIN "Documents". However i dont think this has much to do with the exact problem that i am about to describe.
]I cant access my friggen g:\data\documents\my music or g:\data\documents\my pictures or g:\data\documents\docs . these folders contain 7 years of my lifes works and i didnt get a recent good backup and to make matters worse i accidentaly had my dvd-rw backup disk in one day when i qued nero to erase my rw disk. CRAP, there went my most recent backup of my data.
So, now, whats teh problem? The error message i am geting is this "g:\data\documents\docs is not accessible. Access is Denied"
when i hover, it says 0 bytes. when i check properties, it says zero bytes. when i highlight all files in the drive(including hidden), it says 36GB, when i check the properties of the drive, it says the full 76GB. there is my 40GB of pictures, music, and docs. they are on the drive, but show3ing up as zero bytes. i think the NTFS did me in.
IS there a known isue here? I must recover these documents at all costs, hehehe. I just got done ripping 100 music cd's, and plus my latest BUSINESS docs were in there as well.
I really did myself a number this time. I thought keeping my data off the C drive, to reduce data loss upon total c drive crash due to virus would be the perfect answer, and has been for the last few years. But, now this ZP glitch has proved me wrong.
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The forums are my only hope now, or a miracle, :-)
