Ok, I sold my laptop but kept the harddrive. I bought a new laptop with no hard drive, old hard drive was ide, new laptop sata. Bought external hdd cable, booted to old harddrive blue screen of death. The problem: I am looking for a way to access my files on the old hard drive through the new drives xp install?? I had the old hdd password protected so when i open the files it says access denied. I am using xp home now and can't change the security settings. Does anyone know of a program or way for me to recover the files off the old harddrive??
