I have read online several peoples probloems about slaving a hard drive, but I am still having issues with recovering files from it. Here is the set up and what I have tried.
I was running WinXP, with 2 accounts (mine and another)
I slaved my old hard drive to my new hard drive.
It recognizes the old hard drive, and anything under administrator. When I try to access my folder under docs and settings, it tells me access denied.
I tried the right click, security, and the security option is not there on my account. It does show up on the administrator account.
I also tried to just plug in the old hard drive, as the only hard drive. Changed the jumper settings, unplugged new, and started with old.
Everything goes great till I get to the screen to log in. Up through that point the mouse and keyboard work. On the sign in screen, it is muffled in color and size. My mouse and keyboard do not work.
Any help? Thanks.
Is this a junky operationg system? I saw it was free, and got curious. I dont want to install it, and it be junk, and cant install xp, loose files and all the bad stuff. It would be great if you could help people!
how to recover the forgotten system administrator password?
yeah i have Geexbox on a cd, and someone plans on giving me an old windows 98 ultraportable, i want to keep the windows (wish i could upgrade it though…) is there any way i could install geexbox on a hard drive partition…or is there another good, small size Media center i could do this on…i just wanna watch movies without win98 :shiver: .
Grrrr…. i just answered my own question…hate it when that happens ….
When i try to open any of my hard disc drives, a command prompt window appears & goes, but the drive doesn’t open
Actualy i can open the drive with ‘RUN’ funtion & i can access all the data but i m just not able to open it directly i think its some kind of virus, bcoz i transfered some of my file to another computer & that computer has got the same problem now
