    Welcome to TSG! :D
    Was this drive a primary or a secondary on the old 'puter before you transferred it to your son's PC?

    both file systems are xp pro...not real sure but the files are basically the same too. i think i said above that my son and i were both users on my puter and now that we have put my harddrive on daughters we can get to his files and folders but not mine. they were both password protected on my computer.

    If you used file encryption on your files, and didn't save the key disk for recovery, you can kiss them goodbye. :rolleyes:
