i recently built a new system and am trying to copy files from an old hard drive to my new one (just pictures and music etc.)

my problem is the hard drive is accessible with the exception of my documents folder (containing my music, my pictures, etc.)

when i double click on this folder, an error message pops up: " F:documentsandsettings/stu is not accessible access is denied"

arrrrrgh please help!
