I have a friends IDE HDD that need files off it asap. The mobo in their pc failed but in the mean time they need to access files.
I used an enclosure to access most of the files needed. This was in the directory of my documents/user then a folder. These files needed me to change the permission of the files, then they were accessible.
In that directory, the folder desktop has files they need also. When I open this folder, I can see the files but have not got permission to view, edit or copy the files.
Is there anyway I will be able to get these files off the HDD?
I only have a laptop at the moment so I can not put the HDD into a working pc. The laptop is running windows 7 and the hdd came out of a computer running xp.
