I am confused.. In Windows 7, what was the Documents and Settings folder in XP, is now the "Users" folder in 7, which can be found in the root of C: usually.. There were a number of security changes to the file system that were made starting in Vista an cont'd in 7, that once understood, are pretty easy to work with. I had my share of pains with them at first, but now I am more on the side of seeing the advantages.. I am still trying to get clear in this thread, what exactly you are trying to access.
