Unable to access my documents on old HD

My old computer finally decided to die. I removed the old HD and bought an external adapter to gain access to my files from my new computer (using XP). I can not gain access to my files. The old HD shows my user folder to be empty. I suspect that it is a security issue.

I have looked in the forums and found similar problems but have not had luck with any of the posted solutions. This may also be due to the fact that I am not that computer savvy. Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks

  1. You may need to take ownership of the folder before you can access the files. It's pretty easy to do so take a look at the link below.
