My laptop crashed due to a power surge, so I used the restore CD that came with it, to get it up and going again. I have no problems with the computer now, other than little things I know how to fix, but there is one folder with contents that I cannot access. My computer was password protected before the crash, maybe that's the problem?? Either way, I don't know how to access that folder. I cannot drag it anywhere, nor copy it. Any help or advice would be great!
