Hello,

I recently upgraded my computer to Windws XP 64, and my "my documents" folder on my previous setup is no unavailabe. I have alot of data that i would like to keep, is there anyway that I can retrieve this data.

Once I click on the folder in the Documents and Settings folder an error window appears with 'Access denied'.

I would very much appreaciate it if someone could recommend some software to retrieve my data, or suggest omeway of bypassing this restriction.

Many thanks in advance

Djdilly!

Is it no longer available because it is lock or because it appears to be missing?
