i'm sorry, i felt like i was getting sick and bam, i'm sick, i think i have the flu...got up from computer yesterday, took 2 benadryls and woke up at 3:32am!!! i feel awful.
files i copied, where those that are in the shared documents folder (not password protected), such as pictures and music...but i only got 2 cds done before i got sick/passed out!
while poking around her drive, i found lots of old temp internet files, found one for Toshiba, so i clicked on it and got a # and called them. somehow managed to get in a free technical call. explained all, he said because my daughter set up her nane (folder Dede) with a password, it's password protected and i can't get at it, however, i could take it to a Toshiba service center and they may have a way of getting at it. that's why when i try to open her file, i get that error message "denied access, blah, blah".
now, i just did the boot.ini search. there's a boot.ini.backup, located in E:\WINDOWS\pss, 1KB, BACKUP File, 3/25/2005....it's in blue font (the same blue as an internet link). there are lots of files that come up blue, but most come up black...what does that mean?
it's icon it one of those unknow files type that looks like a "page with red and dark blue dots on it". i could not open it by double click, got window that says "windows cannot open this file. windows need to know what program created it. windows can go online to look it up automatically or you can manually select from a list of programs on your computer." when i choose go online to look up, was brought here to Microsof site: http://shell.windows...sp?Ext=backupto
where it says it does not recognized the file application.
then i right mouse clicked and before the OPEN command, there is "Open Containing Folder" and it opened. there were 3 files in the folder called 'pss' with same icon called boot.ini.backup BACKUP FILE, 1KB, systems.ini.backup, BACKUP FILE, 1KB, and win.ini.backup, BACKUP FILE, 1KB...none of which will open.
have you figured out how to open the "dede" file with the password on it?
again, sorry for leaving you hanging, but i feel like crap...i should be here for an hour or so (late, i need rest) if you're around, otherwise hopefully i'll feel better tomorrow and we can get this thing done.
