well finally succumbed and upgraded to windows 8!!!....I was running Vista and it was running like a pig (does not help I like to try things and probably made Vista crap itself:)) and had a chance at a free legit copy of win8 so I took it....I have 2 hard drives in my machine, C and D. D is my backup drive to save stuff. SO I saved stuff from Vista that I could not replace to my D drive from Vista and I do I a clean install of win 8. Install goes great and reboots no problems till I notice I can not get into my D drive...Win 8 saw the drive and disk management saw the drive but neither would let me in to my backup data till I figured out I had to change the permissions of the drive to 'full control' in order to access it and it worked.
Now I have access to that data by my questions are:
In a future update say 8.1 will this happen again?
And are there any other weird things about 8 I should be on the look out for?
