Problems of access to the files of user account after the change of password

I forgot the password of a user rarely used account, so I changed the password as an administrator.

I can now get access to the account, but the only problem is that all files seem to be empty.

Is it possible that I can get access to the original files?

Hi Carol and John Winter,

1. What are the files you are trying to access?
2. how exactly you are trying to access these files?
3 is confined to a specific folder?
Check what is the file size by following the steps mentioned below:
1. right click on the folder and click Properties.
2. check if the file size is 0, if it is 0, this means that the folder is empty.
It can also be a problem with permissions.
Check out the following link and check.
What are the permissions?
Hope this information helps.

  • Problem with the files of user account after cloning a HD to SSD

    I cloned my HD to my new SSD and everything worked fine.  So, based on advice from experts online, I tried to move some of my HD user account folders (my pictures, My Documents, etc.).  So I created a new folder on my HDD called Brad Data.  I then went in the folder my pictures on users\Brad on my SSD, selected properties-map and told to move into the new folder on my hard drive.  The files transferred properly.  Then I went to my HD and could no longer see the file Data of Brad.  I saw my pictures.  Strange.  Then I tried to create a new Brad Data folder and he asked me if I wanted to merge with the existing one.  What?  So I transferred the folder my pictures to my SSD under users\Brad.  OMG.  Now I have more a user folder of Brad.  I have a folder my pictures that contains all the files that were Brad.  It's crazy.  I can it unscrew somehow or I need to reclone and start over?

    Hi Luna, it will work even under your C:\Users\Username folder.  You do not have something wrong, it's just that the icons you see under "This PC" are shortcuts to the same places, but you cannot add additional of your choice under "This PC" ones as you can do in the users folder.

  • I have a problem of access to the Outlook account and other pages because appears "certificate error" what's happened with these certificates?

    I have a problem of access to the Outlook account and other pages because appears "certificate error" what's happened with these certificates? Help please.

    There are two main reasons for the mistakes of certificate:

    1. Your computer's time is not set correctly.  Check your time year/month/day/hour/minute/timezone/light of day.  Right-click on the clock in your taskbar and select "set Date/time" and make sure you are ready approximately 5 minutes of real time (don't forget time zone and DST).
    2. The second reason is that Windows XP is not very good for updating root certificates.  Go to the following site:
         <> >
      and go down to the section:
      'Update Package root (designed for Windows XP only)'
      There is a link, you can use to download a update for your root certificates package.  Download this package and double-click it to update.

  • Problems of the change of password for my iMac

    I'm finishing the change of password for my iMac in early 2014 running on the latest version of El Capitan.

    When the opening up of the procedure is finished, I get a message in the upper right of the home screen of the iMac. The message says that I need to enter my new password to complete the amendment of the code of procedure. I can either click on "enter new password" or "delete" message. I tried to click on the two, but nothing happens except the message disappears.

    It's all quite strange that I have to use the new password to open the iMac for use and it recognizes the new password, if I try to change the password once more.

    Can someone tell what I am doing wrong or where I need to enter the password to complete the password change procedure. Thank you!

  • Definition of attributes based on the change of password


    I have a requirement where if the administrator changes the password of a user to the IOM, I need set a particular attribute in the directory server, but if the user changes his password, I need to delete it. Could someone please tell me how can I capture that has changed the password and then set this attribute in the DS?

    Thank you

    It will give the details of the profile for the user that triggered the change of password.

    Ideally, you should plug the API code in the task where you try to define attributes in the DS.

  • Set the option 'Require the change of password on first use'.

    I can't get the option 'Require the change of password on first use' for an end user.
    I go to 'Manage the Application Express Users', enter and confirm a new password and choose Yes to 'Require change of password on first use', and then apply the changes. But still, it does not prompt the user to change passwords to log in. I also tried the account, then making the changes described above to lock and then unlock it, but which doesn't work anymore. Any ideas on what's not here?


    When an account has the attribute to change password on first use , the user is presented with the dialog box password change only after creating a new account or when the administrator of the site use the link "Reset" at home > manage workspaces > manage developers and users, causing the password be changed and sent to the user. Regardless of whether the account has the attribute to change password on first use , the user is also presented with the password change dialog box when the account has expired, following the expiration of the explicit account by an administrator of site or workspace or of time passing.

    In all cases, the requirements to 'change' the password is really just a requirement to enter the old password and enter a new password (twice), which may be the same as the old password, condition that is not inconsistent with history of password restrictions created for the workspace.

    Have you tried a forced reboot? Hold down the home and Sleep/Wake buttons simultaneously for about 15-20 seconds , until the Apple logo appears. You won't lose anything.

    Then sign out of the iTunes Store and reconnect.

  • I have a problem with access to a file on the computer.

    Original title: the file

    So I had to change my hard drive and to save some very important files, I moved the on a remote hard drive.

    Now my PC is fixed and I am back to copy my files. Always a single document is causing me problems. It seems that I put some access for special leave, and now I can't do anything with the file.
    I can't copy it, open well through my new ACC etc, I have full access.
    Please help me! This file is very important for me
    Please help me! This file is very important for me

    This would happen if the special file is encrypted. You need the encryption certificate that you want to copy, and then open it.

    If this file is extremely important to you, have you considered everything backs up? Are you aware of the rule that a file that is not saved is a lost file? It's only a matter of time. Unfortunately many people don't know the need for a process of backup appropriate until after a major disaster.
