Hi, After finally connecting a cheap USB to SATA cable to my old internal HDD from my dead laptop.
I am still having issues reading the disk on my new laptop.
The HDD is powered by the cable (light stays on) and reads the drive (another light flashes) but

A) The connections seems to come and go and my new laptop opens up new pages and jumps from E: System Reserved and F: Local Disk drives on its own.

B) When I can get it to stay on long enough, I go to Users, then Admin but it says "You don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click continue to permanently get access to this folder" So I click Continue, but then it states "You have been denied permission to access this folder. To gain access to this folder you will need to use the security.tab"

C) When I click on Security.tab one of two things happen, either it states "F:\Users\Admin The system cannot find the drive specified" OR a new popup window does open, but no matter what I try to do I still cant get access to the actual files on the HDD

Any ideas please, and please speak like you are dealing with a five year old child

In the Security tab. Click on Advanced , then change the Owner of the folder to your account. Then give your account Full access rights.

Thank you, I will try this when I have ordered a new cable as I cannot even open the hard drive anymore.
