Windows 7: Access Denied to OO docs in backup.

10 May 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
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.


Makea bootable Ubuntu disk

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.
