Hi, SOMEHOW my permissions on one of my drives have gone awry. I have 2 HD's and one is split in 2 partitions. I cannot access files in my "G" drive. I am the admin and all other users have been deleted. I am running WinXP with all latest updates. I have tried to reset permissions to no avail. I did a system restore back to Jan 1 and a few files were "released" but most are not. They are mainly Music and Picture files. Obviously I would love to fix the problem, but I would be happy to move them to another drive, but cant figure how to do this. I have tried to do in DOS and using Knoppix. I have even tried to reinstall Windows but get the Blue screen of Death during install. Any help/suggestions would greatly be appreciated. I posted a file that shows my permission screen fyi.

Thanks, Rob
