Yes. Now I have a folder from my old acount in C:\Documents And Settings\<insert old user name here>

How do I gain access to it? When I try to do anything to it I get the Access denied message ::EDIT::Even in safe mode. It is taking up space on my HDD:/ And it also has alot of music. Some of which I forgot to back up.

This is the message.
Cannot create or replace: **** access is denied.
Make sure the disk is not full or write protected.

Nevermind I got it...
How-to for anyone with same problem:
=SAFEMODE=
Right click the folder you want access to.
Security Tab
Click the add button in the first section.
Type your user name in specified field.
There is another method which I will post in around 11hrs time :P When I get home.
