I have a Hard Drive taken from Machine B and attached it as a slave to Machine A. I wish to recover a folder (which I can see) onto A. The folder is called "Heather" and is in Documents and Settings. I know it's full of Word files etc. but when I go to it I'm told that it is empty, and if I try to open it I get "Access is denied". I think this is because XP sees it as some sort of System File. Is that correct?
How do I get to see the true contents of this folder and therefore copy them over to A? The drive won't boot properly in Machine B so I want to get the contents of this "Heather" folder and then restore XP back on.
If this drive came from a Win98 comp onto XP you may not see them. or the opposite way round. if they are both the same OS you should see them however a Fat32 system will not see NTFS files even with same OS
