Did you back-up or copy your files someplace other than the old hard drive before installing the new hard drive?
I have an old 60GB Western Digital hard drive that I bought a new 160GB hard drive to replace. I tried transferring the files from the the old one to the new one using their data lifeguard software, but somehow it corrupted the windows xp files in a way that it hangs at the blue welcome screen without displaying the user profiles. I attempted to retry the transfer with the lifeguard software, but it instantly rebooted my computer and my old hard drive is inaccessible. I believe I'll have to reformat my hardrives, but first I want to save some of my important files. I hooked the 160GB to another windows XP computer, and began transferring most of my files. However it won't let me transfer the my documents folder, saying access is denied. I believe that this is because my profile was password protected. Is there anyone who knows how to over come this problem and transfer the my documents folder to the hard drive on the other xp system? Then I can reformat my drive and move past this problem, thanks.
