Trying to recovery work documents from 3 user accounts from a XP Laptop. I have Slaved the HDD and can see the folders and files in the account I need the documents but because the User Account has a password it tells me they are write protected or in use.

I managed to with the help of the forum 4 years ago do this and unlock so I could gain access to documents last time it happend. I have forgotton the instruction and unable to find my post which was in a different forum not in PCA Forum.

Can someone please post easy step by step instruction so I can gain access to the documents.

I have the Laptop Sata HDD wired up to a Desktop also running WinXP Pro.

Thank & Happy Easter everyone !

I think this may be an XP file sharing issue click here

Will try this, but will it unlock a password protected folder and docs withinit on a HDD which is been connected by Slave on another machine? Will try and see what happens.

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.

Simple file sharing is enabled by default in XP Home

Follow the instructions and the security tab will be enabled. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY OR YOU COULD DENY ACCESS TO ALL YOUR FILES.
