I am running windows XP Pro
I have two User Logins:
Daily User - Limited Account
My Name - Administrator Account
Some time ago from my Administrator Account I set a load of files and folders on my spare Hard Drive as hidden. I could access them from either account by selecting view hidden files & folders.
Recently I was "Playing around with" file and folder permissions and encryption. I tried to set the files as Encrypted using Windows XP, folloing an online tutorial.
Now I can only view the files when I log in using the My Name Login which has Administrator Access.
Also these files and folders and folders have all turned green?? Does this denote encrypted??
I bought a new 200GB Hard Drive (two 100GB Partitions) to act as a storage drive and moved these files and folders from the exisiting Drive, a Segate, onto this new drive a Maxtor, the access restrictions have remained associated with the files?
I set the drive as shared but no hand appears under the drive and it is not visible to the network, but when you look at the drive properties it is set as shared??
How do I remove all the restrictions from these files and folders? and set them back to normal? Why can't I share this drive, is it because of the encrypted restricted files it contains??
All my drives are formated using NTFS as the file structure.
Any help would be great
