I just had the motherboard fry in my other computer, which has a 160GB SATA HDD. I need the data on that drive, so I connected it as a secondary storage device on the computer I'm using now.
The drive shows up in "My Computer" and I can access it fine. The data I need to access is inside "g:\my documents and settings\comp admin". However, when I try to open it, I get an "Access is Denied" error, so now I'm at a loss for what I can do to retrieve those files.
I'm using Win XP Home, and I tried changing my logon to "comp admin" but that didn't do a thing. The secondary device has Win XP Pro, so I think it has something to do with the permissions differences between the OS'es.
Anything I can I do?
