access denied in Windows XP Pro


I installed Mandrake 9.2 on My primay HDD as a dual boot with XP Pro. Now when I'm try and access my Secondary HDD in Windows it tells me "Access Denied" but only on some folders. I log in as Admin in windows and no help. I login under ROOT in Mandrake and try to copy the files I need, so one of the folders that I can view while in Windows and LINUX gives me a Mayday error. I can access the files while in LINUX, I just can't move them, and I can't see or access them in Windows at all. Please help me out yall. That's 80 gigs of downloading over quite a span of years. Thanks a in advance.

eeehhhh?

/etc/fstab? I would post it all day long if I knew what that was. OK, sorry I should have went a tried what you said before I opened my big mouth. I found the fstab but I can't post it because to do so I have to exit LINUX and BOOT windows inorder to access the internet. So I can't be much help to those of you trying to help me. Sorry. If you can help me get my drive back I'll burn my LINUX software and never bother yall again.

Hey Hey, don't get upset with it.


If you use KDE or GNOME or other GUI then to post the /etc/fstab file here do the following:

1. login as normal user. (Yes, a normal user, I have MDK9.2 and at least for
me it has default settings that if U login ROOT you can't mout anything..
... and I like it that way.)

2. insert a floppy and mount it (the supermount is installed by default, just
doubleclick icon on the desktop.. (/mnt/floppy) )

3. after succesfully mounting it, open konsole (a kde shell-program) and
type "su" (program to give U root rights...)

4. when "su" is done, your shell shows a "#" sign to prove U're root.
Type "konqueror" on the shell-program. It starts the GUI filemanager

5. move into /etc - directory. (when konqueror starts, you are on /root - dir)
allocate file called "fstab", select it and copy it into mounted floppy. This
can be done completly graphically.

6. After copying unmount floppy (and remove it from drive), reboot into XP,
open file ie. in notepad, open this forum, then copy-paste the file here.
Job done.

Or if you prefer doing this in konsole, then after mounting and "su", do the
following command: (without the " signs..)

"cat /etc/fstab >> /mnt/floppy/fstab"

Don't think that will help. Sounds like a partition table problem. How did you partition your disk when you installed Mandrake? Run "fdisk -l"(Without the quotes) in a terminal in Linux. Write down what it says and post it. Are you using two harddrives?

If I understood right, then Linux AND winXP are on first HDD, and the second HDD is the one with problems. If so, then it probably *is* a partition problem. XP does those often..

You might want to run the sort-of-like-scandisc in XP. (Gee, I don't even know what it actually is... Linux Rulz..)

No see ScanDisk was invaluable, but Microsoft removed ScanDisk since WinMe.
Wtf I asked myself when I found that out.

update

Ok TiH, I will go through all that when I get off work, they seem to want me there the same time no matter what I get myself into on my own computer. Here are some answers to other questions.
As far as partition problems so, I can't see it being that cause I didn't partition the drive I'm having the problems with. I just left it alone. I didn't do anything but view it from LINUX once. As for my primary HDD, I used Windows XP and did a clean install of windows, for that I just built a new partition that was about half the drive. Then just stalled linus and the rest of the free space. And yes the drive I'm having issues with is NTFS. Ok, now I want to ask another question. I was messint around with LINUX and one time on a shutdown I pressed Esc to view VERBOSE of the shutdown, and one thing that I noticed. "Stopping NFS lockd........................FAILED" and "Stopping NFS Shared......................................FAILED" Now as I understand it NFS is what LINUX uses to view a windows partition, right or wrong? K, that's all for now. I'll get back.
