I'm still trying to get the hang of Vista accounts and the haze that surrounds them!
I have only recently "converted" from XP and am having trouble with Folders that are refused access!
Following Brinks excellent Tutorial on this site I've created an Administrator account so I now have my original account which I gave Admin Privileges too. According to Properies tag most files seem to have System, All Users and my account.
If I open Widows Explorer and expand my User Folder, it has 24 Folders of which 13 have sub-Folders (ie they have an expansion arrow against them). However of this 13, there are 7 that when I try to see their content with W Explorer, I get the message "C:\Users\Paul's\Application Data is not accessible. Access is Denied". The pop-up heading is "Location is not available". However by earlier experience I know that I can delete these files without any complaint!
These file are Application Data, Local settings, Nethood, Printhood, Send To, Start Menu and Templates! There was one more, Cookies which I have deleted and nothing seems to complain ( I mainly use Mozilla Thunderbird).
However if I now open the new Administrator account (but still in my account), I get the same files plus Cookies and the same message.
Right, when I now swap to my Administrator account and open W Explorer for the Admin User entry I only get 10 Folders, all the barred ones plus AppData are misssing!!
It's the same if I open my Paul's Account, all the barred ones are now missing.
so am I to assume that a) Explorer is very selective in what it shows you or b) I've forgotten to change the Files views in the control Panel!
Why are these files barred to my Paul's Account? Why cannot I get ito my start Menu?
Suggestions welcomed! (No rude comments about Vista please)
