    I'm trying to get some data of an old HD, so I hooked it up as a slave to my current computer. I can access everything on the slave drive except one of the folders inside .../documents and settings/. I can access the Administrator and All Users directories but another folder, which has the data I want, says "Access is denied." when I try to open it.

    The computer I am working with is running XP home and the directory in question is not password protected. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    -Will
