    While running the Beta version I moved "My Documents" to D:\data. Today I reformatted and installed the Release Candidate but now I can not access the Data folder.

    I tried taking ownership of the folder and subfolders. Now I can get into the top directory (D:\data) but I can't get into any of the subfolders. Plus, it complained on every file that it couldn't access it. I also tried moving the MyDocuments folder again on this RC to D:\data. Same thing, I can't access it.

    How can I get back into my documents folder (d:\data)?

    welcome,

    What is the exact error message you receive?

    Take a look at the attributes, choose the Security tab, select your user name in the list and click Edit, select your user name again and give yourself full control.
