  1. Simple, fit the old hard drive to your new computer, select documents and settings on the old hard drive Windows 7 will ask you if you want permission to access the files enter password, wait a few seconds. Done.
  2. does not show me too put password at all just says access denied
  3. Sign on to an account with administrative privileges on your new computer with the drive connected to it. Right-click on the folder tree you want to access and select "properties", click on the "Security" tab and then click the "Advanced" button.

    To gain access to the files, you first need to take ownership if the folder AND all it's contents. Once you've done that, you can then change the permissions for "Administrators" or for "Users" to "full control", which will allow access.
