|My old laptop (Windows XP) recently experienced a video card 'meltdown' so I purchased a new Windows 7 PC. I took out the old harddrive and put it in a USB connected case thinking I would be able to transfer the most recent files I hadn't backed up prior to the meltdown. The problem I am having is with one folder (and of course the files and folders contained therein) that is password protected. When I log into my new Windows 7 unit and try to copy that folder or p[en or copy the files, I get a message telling me that I don't have the access rights. |
My account on the Windows 7 is set up as a member of the administrator group. The account used to create the folders and files on the Windows XP were done under the Administrator profile. Both accounts have the same password but nothing seems to work.
I have monkeyed around with changing the access rights via Windows 7 for the folder and files/sub-folders but no actions are being allowed.
Please help . . . . .I am all 'ears' Thank you so much!!
