    A friend installed the hard drive from his old computer into his newer computer and set it as Slave. It shows up in My Computer as Local Disk E: but he can only access shared files and nothing else. How can he get to the other info on the drive?

    What messages do you get when you try and access any other files?
    What directories on the other drive are you trying to access?

    HE didn't tell me what messages he got, only that he couldn't access them. HE's trying to access pictures, music, written documents,the usual stuff people save.
