    I just installed the premium home edition on my laptop. I am the
    administrator on this machine. It still will not allow me access to my
    photos, video's, etc due to security settings. It will not allow me to change
    it. Can you please tell me how to change the settings so everyone can access
    it? Please email me at /. Thanks

  2. $400 and you can't change permissions? Too bad, Mac OS X has all these
    features in Unix! Good luck!

    It sounds like you are attempting to access the hidden photos and videos
    folder inside your documents folder.

    These folders are no longer located in your documents folder; they are now
    directly under your user folder.

    What you see inside your documents folder is an application compatability
    junction - you can see these because you told Windows Explorer to display
    operating system files. They are not meant to be accessed - you need to use
    the new locations instead.
