I had to reinstall windows 7 over the weekend but I kept the original on the same drive (now windows.old).
The problem is the new windows 7 isnt allowing me to overwrite,delete,etc files because the permissions are set to the old OS user.
Is there anyway of doing a full sweep of all the directories as going through each one changing the owner permissions will take be weeks.
I`ve also discovered that I created a new directory within an old one to save a document but its now saying "You do not have permission to save in this directory.contact the system administrator. would you like to save in the *** folder"
I`ve tried everything to change the permissions on that folder but it wont let me save.
