Some people skip the "boot into safe mode" part and can't get it working. You're warned now.
For starters, I wish I found thi forum a couple weeks ago. I wouldn't be in this situation.
To make a long story short, my registry got screwed up, my reinstallation CD is old and I couldn't get access to my computer anymore because it wouldn't boot.
I thought I'd pull a fast one by buying a used HD and using my old one as a slave and copying all of the files over.
The new HD works well BUT in my old configuration I had a password to log into my account settings. Because of that all of my files and folders are off limits now. The "slave" HD is my "E:" drive and any of the public files can easily be moved to the new HD.
Please tell me there is some way for me to get at my folder.
Thanks in advance for any reply.
Thanks for the reply Kees.
Sorry to say (for me) it didn't work.
Here's another thing I noticed that's killing me. When I open up the folder "Documents and Settings" in my old drive I can see everyone's folders and I have access to them all except mine (owner) like I mentioned before. The thing that worries me is when I cursored over my folder, it shows 0 files in that folder. PLEASE tell me that's just because I have no access to it? I don't know how or why any of the files would have been deleted.
Any other suggestions?
