  1. Recover user files without logging in?


    I have folders on portable drive previously set to READ only by everyone else and full by my user account.

    Now system has been down for weeks I take the drive to another laptop with same user name and password I can't gain full control.

    Back then Windows would treat them as same account to grand permissions if I remember correctly, but this is not the case?

    What have I missed here? What do I do to go about those files?

    Thanks.

    Saves log files ?

    You can either read the files in Windows or my preferred method is.....

    Download CCcleaner from here...........

    CCleaner Professional | Try the world’s most trusted PC cleaner, free!

    You can then run cleaner, you will see the log files listed, then if you right click you can save as a text file and then have a read. You may also get an "error reporting" log listed seperatly.
