This is a new one for me, migrating data from an XP system to a new Windows 7 Home Premium system. On small drive previous system I always dump the entire contents into a folder for customers in case down the road they remember some strange location where they had some data stored.
Windows 7 shows 11.9 GB free of 38.2 GB (approx 26 GB used) connected with an IDE to USB cable, but when I dragged the entire drive to a folder it was only showing about 4 GB worth of files. Discovered the user had made files private trying to implement a "secure XP system". I took ownership at the drive level for all subfolders and objects and still am only seeing 16 GB of files . . . somewhere are 10 GB of missing data.
The XP system is not bootable so I can't do a comparison on the actual running system either.
User is a bare bones knowledge user and I don't see any evidence of a TrueCrypt installation.
Comments? Questions? Any thoughts appreciated.
