Select the root folder of the files you wish to copy
Right click select security.
Add your user name to the list of permissions
give yourself "Full Access"
Go to the advanced section and make sure that you set it to apply the permissions of this folder to the files and folders beneath the current folder.

You may get errors applying some permissions - if this happens you will need to apply the permissions at the level causing the problem, and may even have to take ownership of the files and folders

Thanks for your Help mate awfully long tried it still geting same message! i guess il wait untill someone else find the problem or something....do you know why i might be getting this white line when im at the Windows 7 Start up screen?

thanks again!

Just thought of another possible solution - as this issue is caused by the use of NTFS file system - if you copied the files onto a usb stick formatted with FAT (normally the default for sticks) and then copied them back to the required location it should strip out the permissions.

As for the white line - check your graphics drivers as the start-up screens run at a basic resolution and glitches that appear there may not appear when the system has finished loading

Hi what it is is that when you are booting into windows the system sets a basic graphics mode irrelevant of what your actual resolution is set to once you are fully loaded into windows.

What I have seen is that a particular driver that works perfectly in the mode used for normal use has issues with the start-up mode that windows sets. updating your drivers to the latest can sometimes solve this issue.

If it's possible could you upload an image of the actual problem you are seeing (you may have to use a camera as print-screen doesn't work) - it may help to diagnose the fault.

I'm running the RC 7100 build but the actual build shouln't make a difference to this type of issue, although of course there are sometimes driver issues with specific builds

Definitely looks like some sort of driver glitch, all I can suggest is to have a look for updated drivers for your video - as it doesn't happen once the loading is completed It must be resolution dependent - you could try changing the resolution when you are fully loaded up to see if you can duplicate the issue but you may have to wait for a revision to the driver to become available

I was going to suggest using the old DOS method (CMD) run as admin.
works for me.

start --> cmd (right click-run as admin) wait for the popup.
this makes sure you have all the control possible.
type copy /? all the commands are there or like
del /? del is same as delete
move /?
ren /a? ren is same as rename

this is actually what the mouse& click allows you to do, but maybe not exactly the way you want....

Format D: /fs:ntfs /v:Volume-2

to find the commands type Format /? or Copy /?
sample:
Quote:
FORMAT volume [/FS:file-system] [/V:label] [/Q] [/A:size] [/C] [/X] [/Passes]
[/S:state]
FORMAT volume [/V:label] [/Q] [/F:size] [/Passes]
FORMAT volume [/V:label] [/Q] [/T:tracks /N:sectors] [/Passes]
FORMAT volume [/V:label] [/Q] [/Passes]
FORMAT volume [/Q]
volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon),
mount point, or volume name.
/FS:filesystem Specifies the type of the file system (FAT, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS
,
or UDF).
/V:label Specifies the volume label.
/Q Performs a quick format. Note that this switch overrides /P.
/C NTFS only: Files created on the new volume will be compressed
by default.
/X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary. All opened
handles to the volume would no longer be valid.
/R:revision UDF only: Forces the format to a specific UDF version
(1.02, 1.50, 2.00, 2.01, 2.50). The default
revision is 2.01.
Quote:
C:\Windows\system32>copy /?
Copies one or more files to another location.
COPY [/D] [/V] [/N] [/Y | /-Y] [/Z] [/L] [/A | /B ] source [/A | /B]
[+ source [/A | /B] [+ ...]] [destination [/A | /B]]
source Specifies the file or files to be copied.
/A Indicates an ASCII text file.
/B Indicates a binary file.
/D Allow the destination file to be created decrypted
destination Specifies the directory and/or filename for the new fil
/V Verifies that new files are written correctly.
/N Uses short filename, if available, when copying a file
non-8dot3 name.
/Y Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite a
existing destination file.
/-Y Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
existing destination file.
/Z Copies networked files in restartable mode.
/L If the source is a symbolic link, copy the link to the
instead of the actual file the source link points to.
