Hi there,

Is there any way I can read the registry on a second hard drive that used to
be the primary hard drive on another computer.

I took the hard drive out of the other computer and put it as a secondary on
my computer to access the files.

I also would like to access the registry in it to see some settings.

How can I do this?

Thanks,

Gordon

you cannot edit the registry
only the primary drive where you are running the OS, you will have
acess to registry files

From the File selection - choose "Load Hive" then navigate to the location
of the file that contains the part of the registry you wish to view - just
be sure to "Unload Hive" before existing the registry editor.
