My laptop crashed last week, similar to the problems Frylock describes in this post. I have not had any luck repairing XP, so I now have a universal hard drive adapter and am trying to move all of my files from my hard drive to another computer. The first few folders I tried copied with no problem. However, when I go to the c:\Documents and Settings\BetsQ folder, it tells me that the folder is empty. I’m pretty sure this is the folder that has My Documents in it, no? I should have a giant pile of stuff in there. So, does anyone happen to have a good guess as to whether my files are there, but somehow hiding from me, or my files got eaten by the virus or whatever that killed Windows in the first place? And if it’s the first, any thoughts on how to find them?
Thanks for any help. I’d really like to find those files.
