I have a laptop and a desktop computer and I took my hard drive out of my laptop, put it in a case, and then hooked it up to my desktop computer so that I could quickly transfer files off of my laptop and onto my desktop computer. However, when trying to access my user account, it said that there were file permission issues and that it had to fix them in order to access the folder. So, I let it run and after about ten minutes, it finished working on whatever it needed to do in order to allow me to access the user account folder on the laptop hard drive. However, when I put the hard drive back into my laptop, it now boots up to a temporary account. I think it's because the permissions were changed, but I'm not sure how to "revert" those changes or to get it to boot back to the normal account. Is there an easy way to do this that doesn't involve having to completely reformat my laptop? I saw a few methods on fixing temporary profile issues here, 




but I don't know if that will be sufficient for my current issue. 


Thanks for the help,
