    Actually, you have to retake ownership. Even if the user names are exactly the same, their checksums are not so Windows sees them as different users. Since the new user doesn't have permission to view those older files, Windows won't let you.

    Read this and it should help you reclaim ownership of your drive and files:

    No permission change?
    uhm
    tricky!
    Maybe it holds a folder called System Information. (very hard to delete) ask microsoft support
    through their web site you can ask 2 free support questions, then they cost 30$ each. So .. enjoy the first 2

    Supersonic, you have been asked before to show you are a licensed customer. Once again could you please follow the instructions in my sig to register for Priority Forum Support? This will give you access to vB support on these forums.

    Is there any way to get into my old folder?
    If you have win9x or ME installed on the c drive, just put in the cdrom of 2000/xp and upgrade to it,
    after installation you will see the old I drive.

    what operating system? you need a NT operating system (NT4, 2000, XP) to see a NTFS partition.

    I used to have windows installed to my I: drive (which is NTFS) but my C: screwed up, so I formatted it (FAT32). By doing this, I couldnt get into windows on I:, so I installed windows on C: and I want all my stuff back from my old account on I:, but, the old folder won't let me in.

    Is there any way to get into my old folder?
