I am sick and tired of setting 'permissions' for folders on my new upgraded win 7. I have a dual boot system with Win 7 installed on one partition and Win Xp on another on the same hard drive. Now the problem is that I am not able to access old filed on Win Xp, every time I want to access a new file, I have to go through a tedious process of security access setting, which unfortunately is only applicable to the concerned folder. Now after all this has been done, a new problem arises. I cannot access the changed folder from Win XP. I am stuck in middle of no where.. I want to use both the OS.. SOME ONE PLEASE HELP!!!!
