Installed New Hd And Can't Access Files On Old Hd
Posted 06 December 2007 - 12:42 PM
How do I get to these files? These files were under the only account (mine) on my computer, which was set up as an administrator so I am guessing that is why I can't access them without doing something that I don't know how to do yet.
Any ideas? Suggestions?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Try taking ownership of the files on the old hard drive:
"How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP":
This is exactly what I did and it worked! I retrieved all of MY DOCUMENTS and all MY PICTURES, which was the most important thing. I had them backed up on my other backup drive but since that disk had become corrupted some of my pictures were irretrievable.
