I recently installed an SSD in my PC, and did a fresh install of Windows 7 in the process. I unplugged the HD with the existing install of Windows 7 during the installation process, and plugged it back in after.
Now I'm trying to retrieve some settings for an app I had on my previous installation. But when I go to my old Windows 7 boot drive (now D: ) and try to access the AppData folder, it seems to be showing me the contents of my current AppData folder on C: instead.
Is this what Windows does? If so, is there any way around it, so I can retrieve the application data that I'm after?
The only thing you should have to deal with is the "Access Denied" error because you are trying to access user folders & files that were created under a different user account. But you can deal with that by taking ownership of them: http://www.blogsdna.com/2159/how-to-take-ownership-gran...
