Alright so I am trying to take ownership of a folder on my old hard drive but I kept getting access denied. So I need to boot up into safe mode to access the security tab to take control of the folder this is because I have xp home. But when I try to boot into safe mode this long list comes up
you could try using the windows cd to repair the windows installation and that might clear it up enough to get to your data,
have you tried booting up with your current window installation and have the old drive running as a slave? cant say ive used home much so can you not get access to the security tab with the permissions to change them?
yes i have the old drive as the slave right now I am trying to access the documents and settings/owner for the old drive but I keep getting access denied. I am using home so I have to boot in safe mode to access the security tab to give ownership to me.
