Cannot access Local Settings
I used Easy Transfer to transfer data from my old XP box to my new Win 7 Pro desktop. The process was painless and most files fetched up as expected. The contents of “My Pictures” appear in “Libraries\Pictures\My Pictures”, also as expected. I want to share these with my networked XP laptop.
The Properties of “Libraries\Pictures\My Pictures” reports that the actual folder is “C:\Users\John\Local Settings\My Pictures”. However I’m not allowed access to “Local Settings” – I just get the “Permissions denied” message even though I’m using an Administrator account. Therefore I can’t browse down to "My Pictures".
Thus when trying to connect from the laptop I can’t browse to “My Pictures” because I can’t get past the “Local Settings”. Typing the whole path in the XP Map Network address box just causes the XP to spend a while saying “attempting to connect” and then tell me that “the network path '\\desktop\Users\John\Local Settings\My Pictures' cannot be found”, presumably because it can’t get to or past “Local Settings”.
In any case, I’ve not been able to confirm that “My Pictures” is set to “Share”, although I have set that on the Libraries entry.
Does anyone have bright ideas on how to get round this MS generated obstacle?

..\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\ is redirected to
..\Users\<username>\AppData\Local as per Application Compatibility: Junction Points and Backup Applications
So, in your case, you need to go to C:\Users\John\AppData\Local\My Pictures
