Hey.

Been having a few problems with my computer (see here).

Basically, my computer died and I can't use it.

However, I need the files that are on that hardrive. So, I thought I would put it as the slave drive on this computer. It worked, it comes up as being there, can use everything (like program files etc), but, I can't access My Documents (where all the stuff I want is :upset: )

I'm getting a message saying "access is denied".

Is there any way to get around this? I really want those files, and it would be nice to just be able to use that harddrive as well (especially as it is bigger than the main one).

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, Jordan.

Thanks so much for that.

I did all of that right, and I can access it now, and veiw all the files (well, I can see they are there).

The thing is now, I can't use any of them. As in, when I try to view a picture - it won't show up. When I try play a song, it won't play etc etc.

Have I done something wrong? Or is there something I missed?

right click on the file and choose what to open with if that does not work send one to disk and see if you can open it from there

I tried to open a picture with several programs, no luck.

I then tried to copy a picture and paste it somewhere else, but I got:

Cannot copy "filename". Access is denied.
Make sure the disk isn't write protected or full or the file is in use.

I can save a new picture to it though.

When I did, I noticed the picture said:

"Filename"
"640 x 800"
"JPEG Image"

where as the ones I can't access say:

"Filename"
"JPEG Image"

It has no size there.

When I tried to run a .exe file, it said I don't have the permissions to. Although, I set all those up fine (from what I could tell).

This is really starting to get to me.

Any ideas?

When I go into safe mode to edit the settings, I am logged in as admin.

But when I go back into normal mode, I am automatically logged into my account called 'Jordan' as its the only account there (its a admin account though).

I have set the owner as admin first, then I tried 'Jordan'.

Neither worked.

I can't even view the pictures in safe mode when I'm logged in as admin.

Alright.

Something a little weird happened.

I thought I was doing the right thing (which it turns out I was), so I kept trying. I guess the last one it just felt like working. Can now access it all, and all the files work.

Thanks for everything dai, much appreciated.
