grub and Windows Vista 'Documents and settings'


Hi all

I have a triple boot system, Windows Vista, Xp and Mepis.

My fstab entries for the windows hard drives are the same-

/dev/hde1 /mnt/hde1 ntfs umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdh1 /mnt/hdh1 ntfs umask=000 0 0

I can read all the files on my Windows Xp drive but cannot see any files in 'Documents and settings' on the Vista drive.
This occurs with Nautilus, PCManfm and the Gnome Termnal.

Is this a bug or a security feature in Vista

If anyone does'nt have this problem could they please post their fstab entries.

Just a simple idea, but what are the security/permissions settings on your Documents and Settings folder, or its contents?
