It has a hal.dll problem which I have had no success fixing. I will do a windows repair install after I solve this problem.
I slaved the drive to a working media center PC and copied all files I want to back up except one important folder. ( many subfolders and files )
When I try to copy this folder (from safe mode, admin login) cannot copy: access denied etc.
Both drives are NTFS
I changed ownership to administrator, set object permissions as per instructions from other threads here and elsewhere, still no luck.
This folder was originally encrypted, and I think set to private.
The file names are green.
Before I did the ownership thing, the folder showed 0 files ... bad. When I changed the ownership to admin the first time, I could browse the folder, all subs and files appeared, but copy access still denied.
I tried ownership/permissions fix again, now folder names are black in windows explorer, but file names are still green and still copy access denied.
Does this have something to do with the encryption set originally, and can I adjust that?
I really want to back this folder up before the windows repair install.
Thanks to all who can help!
