Over the last couple of days, I have bought new hardware to build a new gaming computer. One of the purchases was a 250G SATA HDD. I installed it alongside my two IDE drives, including one 80G and one 160G. These were from my old computer and have all of my files stored on them. The 160G had Windows XP Home.

I installed Windows XP Pro on the SATA drive and booted to it. When i tried to access the Documents and Settings folder on my 160G drive to recover browser favorites, along with other settings, from my old user account, I got an error message box telling me that access is denied. I did have the user's folders set to private. Is there any way to access the folder?
