  • Hidden Files?

    Today I got my Vista disk and went ahead and did a clean wipe on my system to install a fresh copy of Vista. After the install, I go to my external hard drive to find that none of my files are there... however, the original folder structure is still intact. Some files are still present such as some mp3 and install files. However all of my Office documents and some pictures are not present. I plugged my external drive into another computer and everything is there. Anyone have an idea of what's going on?

    Yes; the permissions to your files are set under the old OS. If it's the same as XP (I don't know I never ran it) take ownership and set permissions so you have full control on the folders...
