Access is Denied under admin Rights
I have just installed Vista.
My problem is that I wish to access the "Local Settings" Folder in
"Documents and Setting" to copy in my backed-up mail files. I was always
able to do this in winXP. But now in Vista, even logged in as administrator,
I cannot access this folder. Any help would be great.

Re: Access is Denied under admin Rights
Hi Jane...
Yes, I found that folder but instead of "Local" it says "Local Settings".
BUt it denies me access. I'd like to get into the folder and get the
archive.pst file. It is huge and I'd like to transfer the contents to a DVD
and delete its contents.
ANy help?
Thanks, Tom
