I had to repair my Laptop version of XP (home), but after the repair installation of XP I now have 2 sets of My Documents on my c drive. When I try to delete the new set the system will not let me. Ideally I just want the 1 set (old).
Is there a way to 'get rid' of this new folder, I just like a tidy drive........
Right click on the folder and select properties, if there is a security tab, click on that then click add users and select everyone (as the system as been rebuilt and the original owner does not exist, if not then try idea 2
Tick all the boxes and that should give you full access and enable you to delete
Assuming the drive is not NTFS (right click the drive letter then choose properties - it will say FAT or NTFS) then this might work (no point trying if it is NTFS) - also you will need a floppy disk & drive
