I managed to get my files over to the wife's puter by her copying all the files over, then I deleted them from my drive, a bit time consuming but got the job done.

Thats one way but not really the answer if you want to make sure you have good backups

Hey Tony, like the site..lots of good info. I am running XP Home...have a copy of Pro around somewheres but never bothered to change over to it since Home was working fine for all our needs.

Have you thought of putting windows XP Pro on your computer?

Do you have any firewalls on both computers?

what would be the advantages of going with Pro, have never done it so far cuz never figured worth it...I used it on another system and it sure looks and feels the same. Our firewalls are off for sake of the home network (it caused hassles); we have the router firewall enabled for security of the network.

When I right click on a file and then click Properties, I don't have a tab "Security"

If you don't have a "Security" tab, then your disk is not NTFS, most likely FAT32, and you can convert to NTFS if additional security is what you want

You have to enter Windows via SAFE MODE (press F8 before windows boot). Select Safe Mode (press enter) and then select Windows XP PRO. Then click on the "hidden" Administrator account and follow the steps provided. :tazz:
