access denied

Iain O'Neill

I want to gain access to a file I have managed to get locked out of. It
used to be within My Documents and I stupidly removed it so that I can no
longer gain access. have tried the following help below but to no avail as
there is no "Use simple file sharing" option

any ideas?

thanks, iain
