    Hi,

    Ive built a new pc for a guy cos his mobo failed and installed his old hd as a slave so he can get his old files etc..

    All the user log-ins but 1 didnt have a password and can be accessed easily but the main account used to have a log-in password and we cant get into "my documents" on the old drive.

    Is there anything i can do to make it accessable?

    Thanx

    search the net for a utility to blank his XP password. There are several good ones out there.

    EDIT:
    Misread that.

    Try taking ownership of the folder
