Windows XP Home Edition question:
Laptop died - BER. Salvaged the hard drive and fitted it into an enclosure connected to my new laptop by USB in order to retrieve all the data (i do back-up data but not that regularly and i wanted the latest).
Straight copy and paste from USB drive to new hard-drive for all files that were held in windows shared documents area. Again no problem copying the files from my wifes ‘my documents’ folder. However when i try to access my ‘my documents’ folder it just says ‘access denied’ in that charming manner that windows has. Actually to be specific, it gives me that message back up the tree at the folder with my user name, so i cant get access to any application data, favorites etc either.
Not sure if this is possibly to do with the fact that my wife’s user account was just a basic user while my account was an admin role? I certainly didn’t have any other security or encryption on my files.
So, teemsters, can anyone tell me how to get access to my data?
Thanks in advance
