I pulled everything out of my old computer because of problems. I am trying to get some of the files off my HDD with another computer running the HDD as slave. I can't get into the folder, it says "access denied" each time because it was a password protected user on that machine. Anyone know of a fix or way around this so I can salvage my docs?

He can't .. he is running the HD on a new machine.

Umm ... were the files encrypted or just password protected?

Is the HDD formatted as FAT32 or NTFS?

You need to take ownership of the drive. Disable Simple File Sharing.

To display the Security tab
Open Folder Options in Control Panel.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Appearance and Themes, and then click Folder Options.
On the View tab, under Advanced settings, clear Use simple file sharing [Recommended].

Now you will have a Security tab on the drive. Right click the drive and select Properties. Go to the Security tab and press the Advanced button.
Switch to the Owner tab and make yourself the owner. Make sure you check the box in the lower left to Replace the owner on subcontainers and objects. After that is finished you will be able to access everything on the drive.

I know what you are talking about RKilroy, and I know it is the way to go but...I don't have the "Appearance and Themes" folder. But I go into the folder options and then view tab but there is not an advanced option. I also tried going into the properties of the drive and couldn't find anything. I am using XP home, let me know if you know where I can go from here... thanks

You've probably switched to Classic View. Open up My Computer go to Tools\Folder Options. Switch to the View Tab. It is the very last box.
