Just recently i replaced a harddrive with a new one, and well i made the stupid mistake of not taking the files i wanted off the hard drive before i removed it. well i put the new one in, got my machine all setup and stuff, but i then realized the errors of my ways and put the old one back in as slave, big problem, i cant get the files because the harddrive was password protected, like from windows logon.

I was told i could use NET USE to connect to the harddrive with a password, but im at a loss as to how and all that good stuff.

the drive letter is F:, and the name of the drive is XPTEST.

hope any of this information helps.

Take the new drive out, put the old one back in as master.

Boot up, remove the password, then swap the drives back to the way you want them now.

File access back without any more password problems ;)
