SATA HDD Docking station

Hi, I've an Acer Aspire X3300. It's working great but I got a SATA HDD docking station today to try and gain access to the info on my old Dell inspiron HD.

I can see the files but I don't have full permission to access them. When the HD was in the Dell my daughters and I were all seperate users, I had a password.

Do I have to boot my current computer from the HD in the docking station and input the password to gain access to my data or is there another way?

If I do have to boot from the old Dell HD how do I go about doing that?

Sorry to go on and thank you for any help you may be able to give me.

  1. Personal user folders are created by default with security that precludes access by other users. To access the folders, you need to sign on to an administrative account, right-click on the folder(s) in question, select the security tab, and do two things:

    1) Take Ownership of the folder (including its contents and subfolders)
    2) Add "Full Control" access for the account you're using.
