Sorry to only show up on the forum when I have problems, but I'm hoping you guys can help me out. I recently had to add a new partition to my hard drive and install a new OS, XP Home SP2, onto the hard drive. The old partition OS was having a boot error, resulting in a STOP: 0x0000007B. I tried repairing it and wasn't able to because of errors and mouse/keyboard failure. So like I said, I installed a new OS in a new Partition. I now want to get files from my old partition to the new one, before I delete the old OS and drive altogether. I was able to take files from the C:\ folder where I had stored a few things. The majority of my data is in My Documents and Desktop, when I try to access those things I get an Access Denied message. I have the password for the old User account, but can't boot into that OS. What can I do to recover the data? I now realize the importance of not keeping my files on the same partition as my operating system.
