Macrium Reflect v6 Home edition.

Have connected a disk with full+differential backup from Win 7 PC #1 to PC #2, and then chose [Restore], [Browse for an image file], then [Browse Image].

The idea is that I can see all the files from my main PC #1 when away and using PC #2.

However there is one problem - if I try to look at files  that were on the Desktop when backed up, I get this:

"You don't currently have permission to access this folder" ("click Continue to permanently get access to this folder")

I'm trying to browse to what was c:\Users\Admin\Desktop on PC#1.

However I then get "you have been denied permission to access this folder - to gain access to this folder you will need to use the Security Tab..."

... which is as clear as mud when I look at it...

Any ideas?
Thanks


Nick

Thanks for posting. 

Please select the option 'Enable Access to restricted folders' in the backup selection dialog:
