Documents and settings is not accessible. Access is denied.

Posted: 10-15-2008, 12:52 PM
As I was trying to browse got the following message:

Documents and settings is not accessible. Access is denied.

Cannot browse the folder even after I took the ownership.

Any help will be appreciated!

Documents and settings is not accessible. Access is denied.

It is normal if you are using explorer.exe.*Documents and Settings* i
Vista is not folder but junction of folder *Users* (see 'NTFS junctio
point - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTFS_junction_point) ) and has attribu
deny list folder/read data - it shouldn't change it

You don't need browse *Documents and Settings* because everything yo
have in *C:\Users*.If you really want explore *Documents and Settings
use someone good file menager i.e Total Comander running wit
administrative previllige

Total Comander? If vista is so good why should someone have to buy extra
software to do simple tasks like look for a file?
