Hello

I run a dual boot system with win xp pro on one hdd and win 7 ultimate on a separate hdd. Everything has been fine until win 7 decided on bootup to run chkdsk on the winxp hdd. it set the security descriptors to default for a number of files and when i boot into win xp the system says i am not authorised to have access.

can i use ntfs access in windows xp to set the security descriptors to the user of the win xp.

Thanks

Yes, that's exactly what it was created for.
