Forbidden..You don't have permission to access

Question: Forbidden..You don't have permission to access

Hi! I have a strange problem accessing one partcular website and no other. Whenever I try to access reflexive.net from my home computer I get the following: Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server. I have no problem accessing this site from work or at my friends house. This problem has been going on for at least 2 months and it appears that this is the ONLY website affected. I tried doing a tracert on reflexive.net and got the following:

Preferred Solution: Forbidden..You don't have permission to access

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:Forbidden: You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Clear the Cookies, etc for whatever web browser you are using. If using any third party security software, make sure that it is not blocking that website. Basic stuff that you need to go and check to make sure that it is not one of those two items causing it.

Wow. I've caught something good. I cannot access any web based email program (even ones I don't use). Also, recently downloaded yahoo messenger 8.0 after having the problem, and now it won't let me log on. But wait, there's more!

I've noticed my Norton firewall settings were changed. It no longer comes on, and I cannot access it because it says I am not logged in and am not the administrator. Kind of boggled me, so I fired up my computer in safe mode and noticed my user account, a buddy's user account I set up a while ago which has been dormant for a while and now a new administrator account. I cannot uninstall norton firewall.

Also, another problem is that I'm running avast anti-virus, which I had set to come on automatically when I booted up and to check for new updates. Anyway, now it doesn't come up automaticallly. I've checked for stuff with avast with nothing found, removed some adware with Ad-aware and now I'm off work again, about to check with spybot.

Does anybody have any ideas of what I may have caught and a good way to deal with it? Dealing with it besides chunking my old PC and getting another? Thanks, Kenneth.

Good day and thank you for reviewing this post.
I have been dealing with a computer that had multiple viruses ..... including the TDSS. I have successfully removed TDSS and others from machines using a cocktail of Vipre, MWB, Avast boot scan, and Combofix. I have probably done 10 of these in the past 2 months with no side effects.
Recently I have experiences 2 machines that refuse to access MS update site after full removal. I have "verified" my complete removal by running MWB and Vipre in safe mode and getting no hits.
I have tried Dial-a-fix, and I have followed the instuctions as MS for this 403 Forbidden error to no avail.
All else seems to work well ... web sites, email, programs, etc. The only thing I cannot seem to do is MS updates ... I can even update MWB and Avast ... but not MS updates.
Does anyone out there have any experience with this or suggestions as to what I should do to regain my ability to do updates?
Thank you very much for your time and advice.

I don't even think it has something to do with the newly installed d-link, i think you got to check your provider?, your control list? and your ie itself maybe you have accidentally change some of the settings regarding your ie.

Answer:404 Forbidden when trying to access forum

The forum looks OK to me (as a guest) and I can get as far as the 'register' and 'login' pages too. It may be something corrupted in your browser's cache or its cookies. One quick check for that is to try the site in a private browsing window (so you won't have any existing cached pages or cookies). On all browsers except Chrome you can open one with Ctrl-Shift-P (on Chrome that is for 'Print'). If it works in private browsing then clear your browsers cache and the cookies for the site.

The above message has appeared recently on my ecafe, (French made) netbook. I have no idea why this should be there but have managed to access the internet from my history list or by typing in the website. The home screen, which is giving this message, would normally show the ecafe home page (now forbidden) I have copied and pasted the information below in the hope someone can advise me on what I can do to rectify this. On reflection, the only thing that I have done recently, which might have caused this, was to plug in an external usb CD/DVD drive to load printer software. This drive had worked successfully on the netbook before, but on this occasion it switched the screen off.

A friend has recently gone broadband with Tiscali. When he goes on-line he does indeed access the internet but he cannot load any web pages. He can use the connection to download updates in cases where pages are not displayed (such as updating Windows, AVG, and anti-spy ware). He is not on a home network.

We recently removed 5 out of 6 total 2008R2 DCs from our environment and promoted 5 x 2016 servers as DCs.  We are still running the domain functional level @ 2008R2 however.
Single forest 2 domain environment
Shortly have recent changes (stated above) the issue started with 5 users in parent domain.  After existing user logs in applications like  windows explorer, internet explore, will error with  "windows cannot access the specified
device, path or file. you may not have the appropriate permission to access the item".  Also, other applications will not run as they are attempting to resister OCX file and DLLs.  cannot access computer management even after granting affected
user local admin rights.  This issue has now transcended to child domain and is affecting at the moment only 1 existing user.
Unaffected users are able to login to same test computer and run applications without issue.
Clearly a domain permission problem with the user account, but not sure how to proceed.
For testing I gave affected users domain admin rights and the issue goes away.  Remove domain admin rights and the issue returns for the user.
Any ideas?

Hello,

I am attempting to access an application.exe file on my desktop. Each time that I click on it the Windows message, "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." pops up. I am the system administrator so this should NOT be a problem but apparently many out there are dealing with this as well. I can delete, move and even copy the file but I cannot run it. There is no option for override with password or grant permission. It just says that I cannot run it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, the system I am running is Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Answer:Windows can't access file. May not have permission to access.

Hello KyRy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might check to see if you can right click on the file, click on Properties, click on Security tab, and make sure that you have Read & execute permission allowed (checked) for your user account or the administrators group.Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups
If not, then you might see if you may be able to install and use the free program Unlocker on the file to have access to it afterwards.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I've gone to "Tools" in Explorer, but I'm not sure which things to "enable." I don't want to enable everything and have something else go bad.

Thanks

Answer:"Server Error - 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied."

Are you administrator on the PC? You will more than likely need to be.

Here's a KB from Microsoft that may help you. It has a "Fix it for me" option, which should help complete the steps successfully.

Answer:Access Denied You don't have permission to access

For starters, where are you trying to access it from? Is this an Internet connection from home, college, business, etc? If it's a home connection, perhaps you should speak with your ISP to see if there are any issues. As for business and colleges: the people in charge of networking at these respective establishments would be the best bet.

Hi folks,
First, yes I have searched the forum and looked at other threads with the same error message but haven't found anything that helps. If I've missed something relevant please let me know.

System
Acer Aspire all in one
Win 7 Home premium 64 bit SP1

Problem description.
I am re-deploying a computer. I created a new admin user, then deleted all existing users. After a lot of sweat I found out about and applied the hotfix for KB article 2866086 and now all but the original admin users profile directories stay deleted!!!

However I still can't get rid of the original admin user's files. I have gone through the change ownership routine and turned UAC off but all that has done is that now when I log in as the new admin and try to delete the files I am told that I need permission from the login I'm currently using!!!

To add to my confusion, properties shows the root directory (C:Users/Old admin name) as containing > 7000 files and > 1000 folders. It is also shown with a lock symbol on the root folder although it is not shared. If there was a file equivalent in Windows for 'kill -9' I would have nuked the bloody thing.

I've even tried explaining that if it doesn't behave I'll re-program it with an axe, but Win 7 developers obviously haven't read The Hitchhikers Guide.

Short of reinstalling the OS from scratch has anyone got any useful suggestions?

Thanks in anticipation

Answer:Don't have permission to access folder - yet again

When I've run into stubborn cases I have booted to a Linux LiveCD or LiveDVD and deleted from within its file manager. Booting Windows next may give some squacks but running a reputable Registry cleaner helps. Many say not to use such a program but I've had no problems doing so. I don't use it until nothing else works and never as a routine thing.

Hi,
I have copied my photos to a portable hard drive for backup purposes and can see them and print them but I do not have permission to copy or move them to another location either on the remote drive or to my pc.
The file permission is owned by root (Unix User\root).
I have tried altering this via the file or its folder properties but once again I do not have permission.
I have tried this on my desktop (windows XP)and my laptop (windows 7).
I am the administrator on both PCs.

Answer:File access permission

"The file permission is owned by root (Unix User\root)."
Really? That's an indication that the files were on a Unix server, and if that's the case the file owner has to modify the permissions using the chmod command.

Hello Everyone, because I didn't want people to access my files and I needed to leave my PC turned on in the office, I went to my drive E properties, then security tab then edit and switched my controls from Full control "Allow" to "Deny" locked with a password. I checked it wasn't opening. There we go! Success.
Later on
Failure;
Because now even though I have the password removed, I re-installed my windows 7 to the same 32-bit version. It isn't opening
I changed the controls from full control "Deny" to "Allow" but I can't get access to them. I tried opening it somehow(don't exactly remember how) but still if I have to open up any of the files, I'll have to go to that particular sub folder and file to the properties, security tab, allow full controls and then it opens.
Now I have more than 8 thousand files in it.
Moreover, after re-installing my windows, I can't open my files anyway.

Hi, i have this problem that i cannot solve. i know why it happened but i was kinda trying stuff without really knowing what i was doing, so now i turn to this forum cause i tried all i could think/find and i still cant solve my mistake.

I had two HD,
C: with XP pro sp3 and linux (dual boot)
D: formated in ntfs with all extra data (songs, video, reports, receipt etc..)

When i had these two working normally, i needed to restrict the access of the second HD (the D to only one computer on the network so i messed around with the permission. I ended up deleting the whole list;
it was looking like this (under the security tab of the HD properties)
"Administrator"
"SYSTEM"
"User" X\username"

So i deleted these, it gave me problems , then i found how to re-take owner ship. but i only re-added

"User" X\username

i could then again access my files on the D: . but i still couldnt share my files as i wanted for some reason. so i decided to re-install windows...big mistake!!

I formated the C:, re-installed windows on it, no problem with that. But now i see the second HD in windows explorer as RAW and access is denied. Meaning the HD is detected and listed there, but the used space and total space amount is not showing, if i click properties, instead of NTFS its says RAW.

One computer (let's call it PC-A) is a winxp professional SP2 with a shared folder for wich Guest and Everyone account permission are set up. This computer is not joined to the local domain.

The problem is that some computer (Win7) can access it and its shared folder , others can not.

More specifically i have a pc (PC-B) with Windows 7 Enterprise, not joined to the local domain , with a static ip that can access PC-A both with \\computername and \\ipaddress.
Another pc (PC-C) not joined to local domain, static ip, win 7 enterprise cannot access PC-A in any way (\\computername or \\ipaddress) but the ping works and so the remote desktop on PC-A.

A third PC (PC-D) , with win7 enterprise, is joined to the local domain(with DHCP and DNS server configured) and cannot access PC-A (the same as PC-C) . In local domain a DHCP server provides ip addresses in the same class of other pc in the lan not yet joined.

Hoping i was clear and provided the necessary information.

On my new win7 home 64bit system I wanted to share my drives so that it would work with my other winxp computer as well so I used the trick of assigning permission to "Everyone" on all my drives. This worked great (better than the homegroup). However today I decided it wasn't a great idea to share the C drive so I removed permissions for "Everyone" on the security tab thinking I was just undoing the ability to share it. OOOPS. Big mistake. Now I can't access the C drive at all even though my user acount is labled as an administrator. When I select the Security tab of the C drive properties I get the dreaded "You do not have permission to view or edit this object's permission settings."

I tried safe mode, but I get that same dreaded message.
I added a "Take Ownership" context menu (using the Ultimate Windows Tweaker), but when I right click on the c drive and click on "Take Ownership" is appears to do nothing.

Damn, damn ... I've been working away configuring my new computer and I haven't done a full Acronis backup of the C drive for three days. (I know - that was stuuupid.) I can go back to that backup, but that means many hours of work lost. Please someone tell me it is possible to undo the removal of permissions to my C drive. HELP!!!!

Answer:I don't have permission to access my C drive!

As an update to my sad situation described above, I tried system
restore figuring that would get me back most of my work. However system restore just reported "Access Denied". Evidently I need to access the c drive to restore it. Darn again.

I also tried booting to safe mode and running "cmd" as an administrator (using my usual windows account). Then I typed the command:

takeown /f C:\ /r /d y

However I got the message "ERROR: Access is denied."

Personally I feel there should be no one way switches in any software. Sooner or later someone is going to switch it, and if you can't switch it back and you need to ... well that is more than frustrating.

Im having trouble accessing an external hard drive. It says this when i try to access C:\Users i can view the rest of the hard drive though. When i go to change ownership it goes through the files and gets stuck on one particular file 3/4 times now and wont get past the one folder. Any ideas?

Thanks

Answer:You don't currently have permission to access this folder

The easiest solution is this: Add "Take Ownership" to Context Menu of Files, Folders, and Drives

I'm hoping someone can help me. Recently my laptop has started denying me access to most of my programs. I cannot access any program that does not have the Run as Administrator option. I have Windows Vista and as far as I know I haven't changed any of the settings or security so I'm not sure why it is doing this all of a sudden. The code that I get reads as follows:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file.You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
Can anybody tell me how to fix this?

I have three computers, and I'm running Quickbooks accounting software on all three. Quickbooks requires all three computers to connect to the company file, stored on one computer. The file is stored on a computer called OFFICE, and OFFICE runs windows 8.1 pro. The other two computers are SHOP, running 7 pro, freshly installed at the end of december, and TOMMY, also running a fresh install of 7 pro as of last Friday. All windows copies are legitimate copies from Microsoft.

Originally, I set the network up wirelessly, and all three were communicating properly. However, quickbooks shuts down if communication to the host is lost even for a moment, and is not supposed to be compatible with wireless connections. So on Monday, I made some CAT5, ran it from each computer to the router, and got everyone hooked up to the internet. My cable tester was bad and gave me a false positive on one of my cables, resulting in me reinstalling the NIC driver in an attempt to get SHOP to recognize that it was plugged in. Eventually figured out I'd gotten a false positive, retipped the cable, and got connected properly.

Now for our network, I tried to set up set up shared files. I gave everyone permission to read/write to the file, but SHOP could not access the file. So I set up a windows homegroup on OFFICE and had TOMMY and SHOP join it. TOMMY and OFFICE can both see each other on the homegroup, but neither can see SHOP. SHOP can see both TOMMY and OFFICE. I removed all three from th... Read more

Answer:Cannot access [computer]. You may not have permission.

i run a network with quickbooks also. it is a pain. check the hosts file, go to computer, windows, system32, drivers, etc folder. open it in notepad. at the bottom, you should have the ip address and computer name of the server on the clients. there are examples in there to show you how to add them. if this is the case, then i would suggest paying for a quickbooks tech to remote onto your system and help. but first, try the forums on their site, i have used them and they are pretty good, just not too fast if you're in a hurry. quickbooks is pretty reasonable with their rates, and when they remote in, you don't have to do anything, although i would take notes while watching, i did.

Agh!
I keep getting this error everytime I try to get onto a certain site:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

And I am not sure why. I can access the site when I am on a different network or through a proxy, but not from my home network. Is is possible that I was blocked from this site or something? Is there a way to get around this (other than a proxy)?

Answer:You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Can you tell us the site or give us a link to it so we can see if others get the same error.

Cheers!

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere - if it has I couldn't find it - but I'm using Windows 7 and there seems to be two icons for My Documents. When I double click one of them I get the message 'You do not have permission to access this folder' which is very annoying especially since this used to happen with Vista and I'd hoped MS would've fixed the problem. Are there any solutions?

Answer:You do not have permission to access this folder!

The location of XP folders like Documents & Settings and History are no longer in the same place. They are displayed when ?hidden files? are displayed but they are ?Junctions?, i.e. they are there for historical reasons so that old programs that would normally use them are redirected to the new Vista and Windows 7 locations. Junctions can be recognised by having a little padlock on the icon and cannot be accessed.You can see a list of these folders using a command prompt. Click the Windows Orb (Start) > Run, type cmd /k dir /al (note the three spaces) and press Enter. The results will be a list of all the Junctions for the user folders, showing the name of the old XP user folder and the name of the new folder in brackets.

There are several threads on this subject already, but none of them helped.

This folder was created on vista so there shouldn't be that problem with transfering from xp that i've read about. I remember locking the folder manually somehow, I just cant get it to unlock.

The UAC is disabled both from the control panel and through msconfig's panel.

Thanks

Hey Everyone

I recently just did a complete new install from Windows 7 7227 to Windows 7 7600 RTM.

The issue is
I have 2 HD's installed on My Computer. One is System (for my OS) and one is Logical (for my stuff). Before I did a complete install and was running on Windows 7 7227, I had My Music folder attached to a folder I made with other music on it, on my other HD (Logical Drive) so if I reformatted, I would still have My Music on my other drive.

But, now that I've reformatted and did a clean install, I've tried to attach my folder with my music in it to the My Music folder and it just keeps seem to be giving me an error prompt, so I went into my other HD and opened my music folder and now I can't seem to play any music tracks that's inside the folder.

I've no idea why it's doing this, can someone help me, I can't seem to access them.

The error it gives me is

You don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click Continue to permanently get access to this folder.

I've went through the procedure that it gives me to get permission but when I applyed it, it only does it to the folder, not the sub folders or files. Can anyone help me to restore it back to the previous version so I can fully access it without any problems.

Thank you.

Answer:You don't currently have permission to access this fold

Hi Gareth,

It is not complicated if you follow this little tutorial:

You don't have to do this for every subfolders, just the main folder.

Rightclick the folder -> chose properties -> chose security tab
Click on advanced -> click the owner tab -> click on the edit button

Click on your username -> check the box: Owner of underlying containers and object.

click a few times ok until your are back in the explorer.
Now rightclick the folder again -> Chose security again -> click on edit

click on add.-> type your username in the white area, and click on check name.

click ok once. You are now in the security box again.

now select your user name and in the permission box select full control.

Click ok

Your done.

If it doesn't work for you, I'll make some screenshots.
Good luck.

My xp laptop had recently crash, but the my hard drive is still intact. I have a windows 8 computer now and I am trying to transfer the memory, but when I try to access the xp hard drive from windows 8 computer, I cannot access it. I get the "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" message. Please help me get access to the hard drive.

Answer:You don't currently have permission to access this folder

Hello DJCool, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You might see if taking ownership of the XP drive with the Replace owner of subcontainers and objects box checked, then set permissions to "Allow" your account "Full control" of the drive may allow you to have access afterwards.

(Option Three)
Take Ownership of a File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 8

(Option Two)
Permissions - Allow or Deny Access to Users and Groups in Windows 8
Hope this helps,
Shawn

Windows 8.1 running on C drive with all my back up/pervious folder/files on D drive from Windows 7. No issues initially.
Windows 8.1 developed operations issues and bugs a few months ago such as intermittently not allowing access to folders so I wiped C drive and reloaded again.
Currently I have tried to access some picture files, being the ones that were most likely modified /saved to D drive by the original Windows 8.1 and I cannot. Oddly enough it seems I have full access to documents and music folders/files on same D drive and the earliest picture pre first Windows 8.1 and latest pictures save buy current Windows 8.1.

New laptop that will not allow me to access certain folders. I have gone into the Folder option in the Control Panel and marked off show me everything but when I attempting to access the "Documents and Settings" folder in the C drive I'm denied access.

There is only one person created for the computer......... me. The computer also shows a "owner".

So the questions is how do I change the "permissions" to give access to all folder on the C drive?
 

Answer:Permission to Access Folders

Documents and Settings isn't actually a folder, it a Junction (aka Reparse Point or Symbolic Link) pointing to the new location, which is C:\Users.
Users (Even the Administrator) don't have access to the Junctions so they don't accidentally get moved or deleted, which could make programs not written for the new locations to stop working, or even crash.
You can give yourself access on the Security tab (right click, click Properties), but there is nothing inside to access.

Lots of folders have changed from XP. Just takes a while to get used to it.
Here's a few of the new locations:
My Pictures, My Music, My Videos–Where did they go?

Hello all,

I think this is my first problem i have encountered since i bought my laptop which is running vista. Ok, maybe it;s been only a few months but still...Also, i wasn;t sure in which section this should have gone, so if i messed up i apologize.

Basically, i installed World of Warcraft and it's expansions and started patching it. When patching from 3.1.0 to 3.1.1, the process kept stoping and 70% then just exit without returning any error in return. So i thought i should run the Repair tool and try again. Only now, when i tried to access WoW.exe i got this error:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

So i came upon this little reg file called Take Ownership, i ran it but nothing has changed. Also, if i: right click wow.exe->properties->compatibility i cannot tick the "Run this program as an administrator" box.

My only options now, are a complete reinstall of the game and patches (but that's just wrong, because there has to be a more logical solution). If anybody has any ideas please let me know. I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks.

Answer:Cannot access file because i don;t have appropriate permission(WoW.exe)

WoW has been having problems with its servers. You may have to reinstall.

My desktop computer was on and then the power went out. After the power came back up, it would not boot into windows and I get a message telling me to start the recovery console and to try to repair windows. I did and that didn?t work. So I checked on the Microsoft site and found the procedure ?Guided Help to recover a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from starting? This procedure has three steps 1. Copy the five registry files to a backup location and then copy the files from the repair folder to the system folder, 2. Copy the five registry files from a restore snapshot to a temp location and rename them, 3. Then copy the renamed files to the system folder.

I am running win XP SP2 on a power spec PC.


So I ran the first step of this procedure and got the PC to boot into windows. I was not able to run step two or three because there were no restore points. The system restore was never turned on. In addition, all of the former user accounts were gone and only the OEM accounts were present. Because of this I don?t have access to anything including running the user setup in control panel. I get a message that the device, folder, or file is not available. You may not have permission to access these??

I recently reformatted my hard drive so before I moved all the files I wanted to my external hard drive.

So I'm all formatted with Windows 7 Ultimate re-installed and I'm trying to move all the files back. For whatever reason, a couple pictures (.jpg) and a couple videos (.avi) will not move or open. They were all contained in the same folder.

It was saying access denied and I needed permission from S-1-5-....gigantic number. So I changed the ownership and permissions of the files and the folders. Now it says I need permission from myself (Laptop/Kevin). I am the only account and have administrator privileges.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:Cannot access files even after ownership and permission changes

I'll give you what I worked out for myself. Not sure of everything about your problem.

Access Denied - For the file in question.
Right click - properties - Security Tab - Advance Button -
Change Permissions - Edit - Allow - OK- Apply - OK - OK - OK

Windows 7 makes it difficult to get through Access Denied and if done
wrong you won't get permission

I know this has probably been covered previously but I haven't fixed my problem yet.

Desktop PC (Windows 7) talks to the old Laptop (Windows XP).

I've just bought a new laptop with Windows 7, configured the Network to MSHOME, set up partitions to share & given access to everybody.

The Windows 7 laptop can see the Desktop & XP Laptop and view/exchange shared files - so the new laptop must be connected to the network.

The problem is that I can't access any shared files on the new laptop from either the Desktop PC or the old laptop - states that I don't have permissions.

If I view a shared files on the Desktop, it shows this as a shared file at the bottom of Windows Explorer whereas on the new laptop it doesn't.

I've tried everything but still can't access the new laptop.

Any ideas - I must be doing something wrong.

Setting up the Desktop was plain sailing and went without a hitch.

I was trying to network the C drives of my wireless notebook and my wired desktop, but i couldn't quite get it to allow access to all subfolders of the c drives. so i went to a form, found a related issue, and followed the steps. somehow i completely locked myself out of my c drives. now i cannot boot them up. (im assuming because i locked the entire drive out somehow. i took it even further to try to reinstall windows xp on both. but after deleting xp and trying to install a 'fresh copy'. that failed too, because...im assuming the 'lock out' would not allow for a fresh copy to be installed. first how can i grant permissions back so i can get windows back up, without loosing all my files and programs already installed, (not formatting the entire drive) specifically my music. 2nd: i managed to install the factory version of vista on my desktop. (which is how im writing in these fourms) all of my files are still on the hard drive. but 'not here' (i can find them in a search but not available to be fully accessed i guess) im assuming because im running windows in a separate partitioned space? so how to i change it so i can keep vista, or reinstall windows (i dont really care which) and have full access to all my original files as if they are still there, like before? also i cant even boot in safemode. hope there is some help out there.
