Thanks for the replies so far.

Problem with this method is that we I right click the folder for the properties, only General, Sharing and Customise tabs are visible. There is no Security tab available.

Any suggestions?

I had a similar problem with my older laptop.


Have you tried the Ubuntu Live disc or Bootable thumb drive? This works for a lot of things that Windows won't allow you to do. It's one of the many ways I recover files when I'm at school and work in the tech office.

As for the bit locker files, a suggestion is, don't use BitLocker. I suggest you try TrueCrypt in the future, due to its universal aspects vs the BitLocker's local restrictions.

Original Credit goes to the OP of the Ubuntu.

Yes mate I suggested this in post #3 but it seems to be going around the houses first.
