folders on XP partition

Posted: 06-12-2006, 04:17 AM
I have installed Vista Beta 2 32-bit. While trying to gain access to My Music
and My Pictures folders from my XP partition, I have now made them
unavailable on XP. The permissisons feature was confusing for me. Now, when I
boot to XP, those folders show empty, with access denied. I can access them
from Vista, but would prefer access from both, or at least back to XP. I can
access the Vista equivalent folders from XP.
Any ideas would really be appreciated!

It's possibly because your My Music folder on XP is within your Documents
area - try changing the permissions to "Everyone" has read-write-full
control, boot into Vista and see if that helps.
