I am new to the forums and have looked around just about everywhere I can think of for a similar topic and thus far have been unable to locate any help. If this has been previously covered, please point me in the direction and I will read up.
So as for my issue.... I was running vista and had a hidden folder with some pictures in it, smart right?
The file folder was encrypted with whatever built in option windows offers via check box. Then before I went to upgrade to win 7 I copied the files over to a flash drive, or so I thought. Apparently all that was copied was the empty folders. So then I ran data recovery software to un-delete the pictures. I have located and recovered them, now only lies one small issue.
When I try and open the files it says "Windows photo view can't open this picture because you don't have the correct permissions to access the file location."
When I upgraded to win 7 I kept the same user name, except I capitalized the first letter of the name, I'm not sure if this makes a difference. Beyond that, I'm at a loss. I tried giving myself ownership of the file, but either I messed it up, or it didn't make a difference.
I'd very much like to recover my files, and any help is appreciated
