I need help please, my old laptod died (along with 400 pages of my book which I had no back-up) and when I took it to a computer store they aid I could recover my files if they removed the hard drived and put it in case and so on.
Today I got this case with a USB cable that has one 'head' in one side and two in the other, I plugged both the ' heads' of the same side on my new laptod.
And lo, and behold it seems that my folders are there under something called Windows.old therein lies a folder my user name, the problem is that when I click it says that I have no permission and that if I want to have it to click Ok.
So I click it, the green bar above the window starts to load but doesn't move when its about to finish, its not opening anything and the window is generally freezing and I have to close it.
Please, PLEASE! I beg of any of you learned gentlements to help me with this problem, I am doomed? Or is there something I am overloooking.
What's the old operating system and the newer one ?
Edit: Managed to do it, dunno how it just...happened. Now I want to deleate the rest of the stuff to use it a a sotrage device but... it wont let me deleate anything, claiming i need permision...which I have.
