I just purchased a HDD enclosure for my computer, SATA/IDE compatible to eSATA/USB interface.
I was able to get to some of the files no problem, mainly inconsequential system files and things like that.
When flipping through things like my old Desktop and User folders I would be forced to take control of every folder/file (EVERY SINGLE ONE) and subfolders would not be accessed with I did this. Attempted it through the Drive (F:\) itself and through subsequent subfolers yet I would still have to do it every folder I clicked on. It never granted me full rights.
What I'm mainly upset about is my inability to retrieve photos and such out of my Downloads, Desktop, etc. etc... I pulled a few pictures out of an ICQ folder no problem but the rest of the drive is missing (picture thumbnails are just a small red circle with a white outline/ X in the middle) and I'm getting a message along the lines of The File Is Missing or similar for different formats.
Now.. taking over the drive in all the ways I could figure out from google search and searching on here didn't really work. Is there any way to reconstruct this or is formatting the drive clean my only option now?
