Thanks for the welcome
We live on turmoil. At least I do.
I did not mean to cause a stir about password protect.
Yes, but that's what we're here for! If you knew the nature of the problem to begin with, you probably wouldn't have needed our help, and I would be here talking to myself!
It's quite possible that I misstated the nature of the problem.
Not true. There are files and folders which, by default, even the Administrator doesn't not posses. This is a Good Thing, so don't fuss too much.
And since I am the administrator the new computer, and in possession of the old hard drive, I would assume that I have ownership of all of the files. I'm hoping there are no violations of any sort with my situation.
Anyway, I clicked on to the above link, followed the instructions, and viola!! I NOW HAVE ACCESS TO MY FILES!!
I shall dance as well, if you don't mind.
I ready to go dancing in the streets.
It has been said that the greatest knowledge there is is to know where to look.
Many many thanks for your help. This was just so easy when you know where to look.

I really don't understand where you get double standard from. There are standards in place for our visitors, and there are standards in place for our senior staff. If you believe that both apply to you, your sadly mistaken.
There seems to be a double standard going here with other users trying to justify ignoring a forum rule.
There is a large difference from someone recovering files from their personal property, rather than "stealing" information from a drive that was acquired by unlawful means. Although you may believe that the information posted was against the TOS here, the method used is available in a MS paper and available to anybody on the web. In Amazing Andrew's opinion the information was valid to post in this circumstance, and I would stand behind that decision.
Telling a person how to "take possession" of files to access them on a password protected HD is telling someone how to circumvent security no matter how the others try to justify it.
Look at the scenario. If you want to help someone crack a system its against the rules. Helping someone recover data/programs from a failed system is not.
I fail to comprehend how going around a password on a drive installed as a slave to access files/folders is any different then telling somebody how to go around a password to start windows & access the very same files/folders.
