Accessing old hard drive data
 
What type of software should I use to gain access to an old hard drive I have.
The message "Word cannot open the document.....user doesn't have access privileges" This is the hard drive from a previous machine that I forgot to back up properly before I moved on. Help!!

Hello!
Can you give me a few details?

The software your trying to open the file with and the software that was used to create the file?

Thanks.

I have connected to the old drive via a USB connection. My new PC recognizes the drive and will display all files and folders it just won't let me open any of them

Can't Access Files On External Drive
 
Can you copy a file, move it over to your pc and then access the file?

No
 
No I attempted that first.

Are you getting any message telling you why you can't open it?

this ones easy

download a linux live cd

I like backtrack 5 but ubuntu is most popular

you can view all files without needing a password and can do as you like with them

can also be booted from a usb device

you can also clone the whole drive using a partition manager
