I cannot copy the files and paste them elsewhere. I have tried to change the permissions on every folder but It gets a bit complicated. I have got screenshots to show you guys what is the problem, so maybe more of you could help me out in this situation.

I cannot click on the permission settings(Part that is circled). But advanced tab is enabled.

I think the best option is to take the drive out of the computer and it should have a label on how to change the jumpers and make it a slave drive. You also have to take the drive out of the other computer and set the jumpers on it to show it is a master drive with a slave. Do you think you could do this or would you like to keep going and see if we can work around it the way it is now ?

I think we should do it connected up to the original computer first, and if it doesn't work we can try making it a slave. But its your call since you are the one helping me. :tazz:

[bleep]! Does not let me in. I guess we will be having to set this up in slave mode. There is no instructions on the HD itself, so I dont know how to do this. This computer was also recieved in a ready assemled package so I do not have an instruction booklets. If you know how to set up a HD in slave mode please let me know how, the model number is:
ST380013AS (80gb Barracuda 7200.7 Seagate)

I will also be looking up on how to set this up as a slave.

Thanks for all your help, your doing a great job so far! :tazz:

We may not be able to do that after reading this ?
http://www.seagate.c...st380013as.html
By chance does your other computer have the same type of drive?
or is this drive connected straight to the mother board or to another card?
I think your new computer might have an IDE drive. If the segate is connected to a board then we could be ok.
Lets step back a bit.
go to cotrol panel > user accounts. How many users does it show?
does it say your account has admin rights?

By the way you can't copy a profile if you are looged in on that profile
set up a new user with admin rights and try to copy your old profile.

Just to let you know, the HD fits directly onto the board on this computer. I will try to re-create the profile soon, after I figure out how to on the site page you pointed me to.
