So, I'm trying to backup a "My Documents" folder from a hard drive partition that contains a no longer
bootable Windows installation ... the Consumer Preview of Windows 8, to be precise. I want re-format
the hard drive, but need to backup the contents my Users/Greg folder from the obsolete installation,
but it won't let me. Everytime I try to cut/paste from that folder I get this VERY annoying error.
Errrrr, excuse me? It's MY computer, I AM THE ****ING ADMINISTRATOR!" How DARE you restrict
access to MY OWN FILES, then tell me I need to obtain permission from MYSELF to continue!
I've tried the "Take Ownership" registry hack ... but for this particular issue, that doesn't work.
