click here is how you could have solved it.

You may need to take ownership of the files and folders on the slave drive click here

this is a follow up to my previous post,I have installed the corrupted hdd on to a spare pc as slave and have access to the contents.Now I would like to copy my files,emails, software I have purchased,favorites etc.What exactly do I copy.Faves,emails,passwords are not a problem,its the software and its serial numbers etc I am not sure about. thanks

It is best to reply to the thread. The yellow envelope is for private messages.

You will need to reinstall the software. It will make entries in the registry. You can't simply copy it from one drive to the other.
