Unhappy Access User Accounts from multiple partitions

Hi there,

I am an avid user of Windows 7 OS. Since last week I am not able to boot my Windows 7 OS partition due to a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). I have a separate partition on which Win 8 is installed. I logged on to Win 8 to recover my files that were on the Win 7 partition but was unable to access the contents of my Desktop from Users folder.

Kindly help. How do I recover my files present on the desktop of the corrupt Win 7 partition?

Can you please provide the exact error message you're getting when trying to access the Desktop folder? A screenshot would be useful.

Anyway, a few suggestions:

1. Check if you can login to your Windows 7 OS in safe mode. If you can, the files from the Desktop can be copied to a different partition.

2. Can you try taking ownership of the Desktop Folder and setting at least Read permissions for your Windows 8 user account. The following link should be useful,
