Access "Private" Doucments on WinXP Profile

WinXP Pro
First you need to disable Simple File Sharing if it is not already:
My Computer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> View tab -> Scroll to the bottom of the list of advanced settings and un-check Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended) -> Click OK.
Next go to the drive and right click on it and select Properties -> security tab -> Advanced button -> Owner tab -> Select the username account from the list and put a check in Replace owner on sub containers and objects -> Ok -> Ok
You must be logged on to the computer with an account that has administrative credentials. If you are running Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, you must start the computer in safe mode, and then log on with an account that has Administrative rights to have access to the Security tab
