Windows 7: Access Denied to OO docs in backup.

Access Denied to OO docs in backup.

i have just completed the first full backup on my laptop. There are the usual VHD backup folders on the backup disk and I think I know from previous backups on other computers that there is a specific procedure required to view the contents of these. However, there is also a list of other files/folders which are Open Office documents and when I attempt to open these to view the contents an "Access Denied" message comes up.
Would anyone know why this occurs and if there is a 'work around' to open these documents?

Gordon this might work for you and I have retrieved a lot of info from apparently dead drives using this method.

BOOTABLEUBUNTU

Makea bootable Ubuntu disk http://www.ubuntu.com/download

Setthe BIOS to boot from the optical when the machine boots it will show you ascreen with TRY or INSTALL > select TRY

Whenit is finished - it takes very little time you will get a screen like in thepic .

Openthe drive you want > User and dig down until you get to the data / settingsyou may be able to copy / paste the material you want to an external source orother installed drive doing this.

Iam not sure if it will but I have recovered tons of data etc using this methodboth on "dead" or just plain drives that you cannot get data fromusing Windows.
