    My computer crashed the other day and so I bought a new one and ripped the hard drive out of the old one and put it in one of those external enclosures, the only issue I have is that I can't get into my folders that have a ton of my data in them like accounts and articles etc. Any of you guys know how I can bypass the protection or whatever it is?

    I've done quite a bit of searching and all I find is that I need to change the folders permissions but I mean for the most part I'm not retarded and I've already tried that, I know there has to be a way and if any of you know what I'm talking about any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    Can you see the files at all/ the hard drive when you plug it in the computer?

    I actually just got it to work and I'm not sure how, I guess leaving it over night and going out drinking was what needed to be done. For the record though, yes I could see the drive and some of the folders but I couldn't get to the important stuff such as the My Documents folder etc.

    I think possibly that simply changing the permissions for the one folder I was trying to get into might not have been enough but when I did it for the entire drive that may have been the ticket, still boggles my mind because I couldn't get it to work yesterday after doing it and I'm fairly certain that my forehead is a bit flatter from banging it against the wall multiple times.
