Hard to come up with a title for this one, sheesh.
Have a friend whose computer went down. He asked me to get all his data off his drive. His old computer was running XP.
So, I've plugged it into my Windows 7 computer. When I attempt to open up his Documents and Settings folder, I get prompted to elevate in order to "permanently get access to this folder."
If I do this, will I be able to access the files in this directory, or will all the current files be lost?
I may be overly paranoid about this, but I can't find any information about exactly what will happen when I do this. TIA.
