Default Can't access storage hdd after win7 install

Hey guys,

bit the bullet and made rc my primary OS, but even with folder permissions set to allow full access to a personal documents folder saved on another hdd, Win 7 will not even let me open, much less move or modify anything from that folder.

Not much help on google, unless I'm asking the wrong question..

Any help is appreciated!

Is the drive mapped? If not assign a letter to it and you should be able to access it after wards.

It was mapped - I finally got disgusted and formatted it

It started telling me I needed special permission from this 32 character number. All I can figure is that that drive was formatted and saved under my Vista installation, so win 7 security saw it as another user even though the names were the same??

LOL, decided the data on there just wasn't important enough to suffer more grey hairs from.
