It worked but I did it using a slightly different method. I opened the
properties for the entire disk and gave myself full authority...almost. I
still am denied access to some files (boot, bootmgr, etc.). I do not want to
open those various files but I wonder if a technical support person might
want to see inside of them? How would access be obtained?
Also, chkdsk ran on drive D: and claimed to have found and fixed errors
(details of which I copied to a text file) but I ran it again and the
identical errors were still there. They are 8 indexes and the same as
orphans. They are also the exact same ones that come up when chkdsk runs on
my C: drive. Is there someplace where I can submit these 'details'? Or...
how would I look up a KB for this?
Thanks for the help,
