Can't access a windows user folder !!!

Post Posted: May 30, 08 23:16


I am working on mounted external IDE hard drive in which i would like to erase some files through the use of evidence eliminator

The files are under (C:\Documents and Settings\User1)

The problem is that whenever i want to access this folder...a meesage pop up saying ACCESS DENIED

I know that the problem is related to permission issues but i dont see how i can bypass this type of protection

Any clues???
