Access is denied on hard drive

Hi all

My Raptor drive went a little mad and in the end i had to connect my old HDD in order that i could load windows. I have checked the Raptor with chkdsk and it has found no faults, so it is a problem with windows.

My problem is now, is that i am trying to access the drive, to get the files off my old desktop before i format it and i get this message click here

I think you might need to use some sort of hard drive recovery software to get the files back before you format the drive.

As you can see i can access the drive.

I have now accessed the folders, but cannot copy the files

Access Files
If you get Access Denied in WinXP Pro. Try “taking ownership” of the file/folder before it can be accessed. First of all go to Folder Options, View Tab and in the Advanced Settings at the end, untick “Use simple file sharing”, which will allow the Security Tab to be shown in the file’s properties. Also, in Folder options, make sure hidden and system files can be viewed.

To take ownership of the file (it’s best done at the folder level), right-click it, Properties, Security Tab, add your user name, fill in all the permissions and Apply. You can now access it.
