    Hi everyone,

    I've recently added a second hard drive which used to be my master on an old computer, and which is full of files I want to back up. Problem is that most of these files are in a My Documents folder from my windows profile on that old machine, which was password protected. I know what the password is, I just need some way of entering it, as at the moment when I try and open that folder it just says "access is denied". Please help!
