    Here's what happened...

    My motherboard decided to die the other day, so i ended up getting a whole new processor, motherboard, and hard drive, but i kept the original hard drive as a slave, and then when i went in to grab some files, it says "access denied" as, i had a password on the old user account, and i had private folders turned on, the new parts won't work with the old hard drive, so it's not an option to try that.

    Is there any way i can get the files out of there?

    not sure how you tryed, but can you move them or copy by right clicking to the other drive's document section, or desk top. maybe you can drag it to the desktop
