Can't access XP sytem folder files from Win 7
Dec 20, 2012, 4:06 PM
I'm having trouble accessing system files from my XP machine through my Windows 7 network.
This is the error that I get:
Windows cannot access \\xpuser\c\windows
You do not have permission to access \\xpuser\c\windows. Contact your network administrator to request access."
I'm admin on both systems(home).
Even after searching online, I still haven't come across a solution to my problem.

Even an admin has not all the rights (to destroy the system files by accident). Use the c$ share to get access to the system files.
