Accessing old accounts

  1. Hello. I have build a new computer with different hardware configurations. I am using a USB harddrive enclosure. I am in the process of moving old data to another harddrive so I can reformat my old one. One problem, though. I cannot access my old account (Admin account. Not special 'Administrator' account.) My old hardware died so I cannot go back to that to boot it. My new hardware will not allow me to boot up Windows (BSOD) normally or in Safemode. Is there a way to recover my account's documents?

    No go. Is there a way to use a program to uncheck the "make this folder private" box? I believe this is the problem.
