  1. sorry i took this from someone but same exact problem...

    Hello,

    I recently had to buy a new Hard Drive because my old one was faulty after 2 1/2 years (wouldn't load Win XP, kept constantly rebooting). I can still access my old Hard Drive's files ok except I can't access anything under Docs and Settings under my user name. Yes, I was the Administrator and still am on this new Hard Drive. Here is the message that comes up when I try to access any of the files:

    "D:\Documents and Settings\NAME is not accessible. Access is denied."

    the new hd is my primary and old is slave.

    Please tell me how I can gain access to my old files. Any answers will be appreciated
