Can anyone tell me how to access the files on the second partition of my hard drive .My windows XP-sp2 can see the folders on the drive , I just can't open them , Im not sure if this is a partition issue or a user security issue. I made this partition so that i could keep my files there and they would be safe when and if windows crashed , or if i needed to format the partition.
It seems they are safe , i just cant open them anymore !!! I really dont wanna lose them.
