I've got a slave hard drive with Win2k on it, accessing it off of a XP HD without admin access. I get an "Unauthorized access" error when I try to open the Docs and Settings folder on the 2k hard drive. Any suggestions on how to get to the folder? (FYI, I can't get admin access)

Im, not going to tell you how to "break in" but...

Is it only attempted access to that folder that gives you the error message?

Can you access the rest of the disk no problem?

Why dont you have admin access? Did you create the account? Is it your disk? ..did you steal it? ...only kidding!

See if this helps

Most of these are bootable floppies that give you a backdoor to the SAM registry hive and allows you change the admins password.

Instructions
This is a utility to (re)set the password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your NT system, by modifying the crypted password in the registrys SAM file.

http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/bd030426.zip (1.4MB) - Bootdisk image, date 030426
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/sc030426.zip (~750KB) - SCSI-drivers (030426)
The unzipped image (bdxxxxxx.bin) is a block-to-block representation of the actual floppy, and the file cannot simply be copied to the floppy. Special tools must be used to write it block by block. For Dos, win95/98 & NT, use rawrite2.exe or some other imagewriter:

http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/cd030426.zip (2MB) - Bootable CD image with same version and drivers as floppies above.

Previous versions (this uses the old NTFS driver, can try this if the new one won't work):
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/bd011022.zip (1.4MB - Bootdisk image, date 011022)
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/sc011022.zip (~700KB) - SCSI-drivers (011022) (only use newest drivers with newest bootdisk, this one works with bd011022)

Change administrator password on NT/2000, without knowing it!!! Bootdisk...

NTAccess can replace the administrator password of a Windows XP, Windows NT or Windows 2000 system by rebooting the computer with a special set of boot disks or CD-ROM (XP only). This is useful if you forgot the administrator password and cannot access the Windows XP/2000/NT system.

Or you could, if you have a FAT32 file system, just boot to a Win98 bootdisk and rename the SAM file (registry Hive) in the C:\WINNT\system32\config folder to something else. Of course this will remove all accounts on the system and you will need to rebuild them. If you are using NTFS then boot to the Win2000 CD and do this from the Recovery console.

That should be enough...
