    This is another follow-up thread but I need to know how to use it (easily)

    I have tried to use the normal routine to recover my profile:

    1. create a new profile
    2. Copy every file from the old to the new with the exception of:
    ntuser.ini
    ntuser.dat
    ntuser.dat.log

    However this does not allow me any access to any folder whatsover except the files on the desktop.

    Someone offered this.


    icacls c:\Windows /grant user-name:F

    user-name or SID.


    SID prefixed with *

    The indication was that this would give the user-name Full permissions to access all folders but the command did not complete.


    Added to this my PC is setup as follows:


    C: = System
    G:\Profiles = User profiles.


    Ay advice (preferably of the good sort) would be more than welcome
