I took the hard drive out of my old computer (XP) when the motherboard died. installed the old PATA drive in an enclosure to convert to an external. The drive is recognized, can open it and get to user files in documents and settings. However, if I try to copy, or open my folder, it says I do not have permission to access.

I even setup the same administrative name on my other computer (Vista 64 bit), but get same message.

I have a lot of old family pictures, and documents I do not want to loose. Anyone have suggestions?
