Dual Boot - Win7 and XP - Access denied to files when booting in Win7
Hi there, hoping someone can help...
I've eventually managed to get a dual boot system going. I've installed Windows 7 on one hard drive and Win XP Pro on another.
I've still got to figure out how to get a dual boot menu going, but in the meantime I press the F10 key during Boot-up of the machine and I suppose its my Bios that allows me to decide which hard drive to boot from. Both boot-ups in either XP or Win7work fine.
However, when I boot in Windows 7 I can't seem to save files that I have edited i.e. I can open up the file and make chnages, but as soon as I try to save and replace, I get an access denied message, although I've got admin rights. However on some drives I can edit without a problem. Even on the same drive, for example the c: drive, I can edit and save files in the My docyments folder, but can for example not edit and save files in the Program Files (x86) folder on the same drive ....
If I boot in XP, this problem does not occur and all files are accessbile and can be edited and saved ...
Any ideas? Any help would be extremely appreciated ...
