Hey there,

I decided to reinstall XP on my computer recently. So I cloned my hard drive (using Disk Copy v2.3) and then reinstalled the OS. The new install is up and running, but I can't access my old files on the clone (it says "Access is denied").

Is there any way to force permission? Maybe a program of some sort? My google searches have been completely unsuccessful.

Thanks

My PC:
OS: Windows XP Pro SP3
Motherboard: Intel Desktop Board D945PSN
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 3.00 GHz
RAM: 4.00 GB (4 x 1.0 GB) DDR PC2-5300 (3.5 GB recognized by XP)
Video Card: ATI Radeon X300HM 128MB
Power Supply: Nexus 460 Watts
