Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Old hard drive, files are loHcked to original XP account...
I have a hard drive from a friends dead Dell, which is completely non-working now. We hooked it up to my Windows 7 box to transfer his data and get it on to his new computer, but Windows is throwing up errors about permissions and that access is denied.
Everything under the Security tab is locked out, so I can't modify the permissions at all. Tried making a user account on this computer with his old username/password, didn't make a difference.
Anyway around this or are his files locked forever?
