My profile wont allow me into it.. Keeps telling me it is corrupted.. So I tried to pull the files from that profile to my Admin profile.. No problem. Except ONE folder.. When I try to drag it to my Admin desktop, it says the following:

C:\Documents and Settings\Jacob\Desktop\music is not accessible.

Access is denied.

Ive tried taking ownership of the file, but when i right click and go to properties, the security tab isnt there, and I have no way to take ownership from there..

Any ideas??? My entire CD collection/music collection is there, which has taken me months to rebuild after having 500+ CD's stolen. I was just about to back it up, when this occured..

HELP!!

Hi Jacoberrance...

If you are using XP Home Edition, you must be logged into the Safe Mode Admin account to have access to the Security tab. Follow the first set of instructions HERE.
