So yeah I installed the Win7 beta, was going fine initially, then weird things started to happen. Had some hellish issues with my Creative sound drivers, but I managed to overcome them (mostly). Anyway, things went from bad to worse when Win7 kept crashing during startup (on the screen with the winlogo), for seemingly no reason. Restoring to a previous point didn't work, lastgood didn't work and the Win7 repair feature failed pretty miserably, too. Anyway, cut to about an hour later. I've installed WinXP no problem, but I have a major issue. My secondary HDD (a 300GB SATA drive containing all of my music and videos etc) is giving me major grief. I can access the drive itself but the folder on the drive which contains everything gives me an "Access denied" error. This is surely because of the crazy user security in Win7 that made me "claim ownership" of the drive and change all of the permissions it would seem. So, my question is: is there a) a way to easily get access back straight through XP without too much fuss, or b) through Win7 can I change the permissions so that anyone from any Windows OS can access this drive without any trouble? Tips would be much appreciated, Cheers, Josh.
