windows 7 access denied

i had windows 7 BETA installed on Drive D,
i installed windows 7 RC on Drive C because BETA was expirying,

but in RC every file and folder gives me access denied, i tried taking ownership, i tried taking permissions but nothing helped

the wierd thing is when i try to copy files after taking permission and ownership it says i need permission from Vishal-PC/visblu...thats the account i m working in.. its a admin account.. means i need permission from me? if its a bug please help me fix it if its not then please tell how to fix the problems its my all life data i need help PLEASE!!

*EDIT: forgot to mention to mention before, i tried booting LINUX Ubuntu from Disc and it also had access denied =_=

Now there is an Issue...I reccomend getting all the data you want off of Drive D and then formatting Drive D and Drive C completely...reinstall the RC afterwards

Wait a sec...I just read that again...can you access the BETA and backup all your data from there?

Yeah you can pretty much assume beta will be gone in 7 days. I have not seen a way to prevent it. If you were dual botting into a different OS (linux, mac, dos) you data could be copied off no problem. Better hurry

If you don't have access to the security certificates used to encrypt, those files are gone for good.
