So long as you didn't encrypt the files, the fastest method would be to use a Knoppix boot CD. You may have to burn them to a CD or move them to a USB flash drive if you used NTFS for the internal drives. Knoppix will only read NTFS partitions, it won't write to them.
I was wondering if anyone could help me in solving a little problem that I overlooked.
I had XP OS on C drive and my documents on D drive. I recently had to reinstall my OS on C drive from scratch due to a bug, trying to make sure that I installed it in the same manner.
Everything proceeding fine, until I went to access my documents on D Drive. In the inital setup I had set security/privacy access to limit only me seeing my documents, now after reinstallation I can no longer access my documents due to it not recongnising me as the account holder or administator. I can access all other documents shared etc.. but not mine.
Does anyone know how I can fix this? I know for a home computer I maybe in hindsight should not have set it up like this, but it seemed the right thing to do when prompted by XP.
Anyway if anyone can help me or suggest how to fix it it would save my documents.
