Unable to acces files on NTFS external hard disk

I have an external hard disk which has caused no problems for around six months, then, after a PC crash and subsequent re-installation of Windows XP Home edition, I can no longer access the files on the external drive. I can see the files in Windows Explorer but when I try to access them, I recieve the massage " {filename} is not accessible. Access denied." It is formatted as NTFS. Anyone assist?
