Does any body know how to access files on a hard drive that are pass word protected. The problem is I hooked my old hard drive into my new computer as a slave and it will not let me access user files. When I had my old hard drive in I had my computer password protected so nobody could view my personal files like my pictures, my documents, etc. So now I want to take does files from the old hard drive and put them on my new hard drive. HOW DO I DO THIS!!! SEND HELP IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
Put your old hard drive back in your old machine, (I hope you still have it, and that you can boot with it!), then turn OFF whatever password protection you turned on, so that the files are unencrypted. Then you should be able to put the drive onto your new machine without problems.
