My relatively new Dell desktop power supply died so trying to retrieve my data (pictures and docs) off the internal hard drive. Hooked it up with an adapter I have used in the past which seems to work fine and I can see the drive when I look on windows explorer on my laptop. The only problem is the Windows 7 operating system is preventing me from access the data stating I donít have security access or right to copy the data. Any suggestions?
