Hello, I am new to the forum, hope you guys can help. I know a decent amount about computers but have been stumped on this problem for about a week. I also couldn't find any info on past threads anyway my previous computer died (the motherboard did) and so I inherited a decent workstation. I took the hard drive from my old computer and installed it into this one, the old hard drive never had any problems and still doesn't...
I plugged it in correctly, and the computer detected it and has labeled it E: in my computer as I thought it would. It initally would not let me access anything in it until I right clicked, did Properties, did the Sharing tab, and clicked "Share this folder on the network" and "Allow network users to change my files". It then let me go in and I can now access my Program Files and Windows folder, but when I go to Documents and Settings and my username, it says access denied. I tried right clicking and doing the same properties but it says access denied still.
All I want to do is access my desktop so I can listen to my MP3s folder but it won't let me in my own harddrive! Help please!
Edit: In similar threads, everyone suggests rebooting and booting from the slave disk, which I have tried. It won't boot from it for some reason... it just goes in a loop endlessly restarting itself. I have to boot from the primary drive.
