my laptop hardrive is now an external component that connects with a USB port,. i installed the laptop harddrive externally onto my desktop. (i just plug the usb into the front of the desktop..) now i can access my files from the old harddrive through my desktop through windows explorer or however.
PROBLEM: the folder im trying to acces in was hidden, and/or possibly password protected. it wont let me open the folder it says access denied or something along those lines, but it doesnt give me the option to type in the password. i tried to boot windows from the usb harddrive and its not working. ive tried a million ways,. weird thing is when i search the external drive for .jpg files, i can see thumbnails of all of my pics, but cant get to them.... anyone know how to access this hidden/PW protected folder?? these are my ONLY copies of some of my favorate pics.. Please Help. please..
