I have just built a new PC and have put my old hard drive in as a slave. I had program files and various saved files in my doccuments. In trying to access this on my new PC it will not allow me to. Thinking about it, I have realised my username needed a password before windows would load. Assuming this is why I can't read from that folder on new PC is there any way, knowing my password I used on old PC, that I can get access to this folder?

Regards

I would put the hardrive back into the other computer, and link them in a network. Access the computer that way, and transfer everything to your newer machine.
Not the ideal method, granted, but one that will work, provided you have the patience to set up a small intranet network between the two boxes. Good luck.

I'm not sure I completely understand. Having a logon to windows password shouldn't prohibit you from seeing your files on another computer..... :confused:

If the old drive isn't recognized in "My Computer" did you try different jumper settings? Mine wouldn't work unless they were both on CS.
