Hi - I have WinXP Home with NTFS formatted partitions, and my My\nDocuments folder I has password locked to prevent other snooping\n(kids) from rummaging into it.\n\nThen, after many months of happy use, I had a rather extreme WinXP\ncrash such that no way would it boot to anywhere, not even safe boot,\nor system recovery would work. I had three partitions. Windows on C:\\nand apps on D:\ and my My documents folder on D:\ along with other\nessential stuff.\n\nWith good forsite I had always backed up the contents of the My\nDocuments, so I've not lost the contents.\n\nTo get around my system glitch I formatted the C:\ and D:\ drives, and\nreinstalled as usual. Now I can't get into the My Documents folder. It\nwon't accept my usual password and has totally locked me out, even\nwith me logged on as administrator.\n\nDoes anyone know a way for me to get around this problem please?
