Hi!
The story is:
I got a hard drive out of a computer running windows XP home (this computer was not booting in to windows), so I put the hard drive in a caddy and plugged it via USB in to another system so I can get photos, etc, off the hard drive before doing a reinstall of windows. I can look at the files on the HDD I have in the caddy but I do no have permission to open or copy/paste these photos or any other files under the user account I was using as I had a password on this account.

So my question is; how can I gain permission to copy and paste these file so that I do not loose any of my important data before I do a complete format and reinstall

Thanking you in advance

Cheers
