Hello my hard drive crashed, I was unable to boot to pc. Tried reinstal repair of Win xp still no luck to boot.
I added old hard drive C, set first hard drive D as slave and reinstalled again
Now I have access to my pc however no access to old My documents. Can see however all of the system files on D. Just access denied to my docs on old hard drive
The new hard drive is on Fat32, old hard drive is NTFS- could this be the reason?.
When I right click on the D: My docs folder, its tells me its empty, however when I run a program like Registry Mechanic on it, it shows that there are several folders still in there.
Have discssed it with computer shop, they say its a permissions issue
Can anyone please advise before i lose patience and reformat both drives as both now running slowly, as double xp installed now.
I am web administrator for local walking club so would ideall like access to the files but I guess if I have to reformat will do so
Another weird thing I ve noticed is that even though I changed the jumpers in my old hard drive so its acts as a slave, when I installed the Win Xp again and any files I save automatically go to the old hard drive as new folder windows xp 2 etc and Cetc my docs. Is this normal?
Any advice would be gratefully noted.
