Back-up harddrive

My old laptop (Windows) broke, and I managed to take out the hard drive and turn it into an external drive. however, my new laptop (also Windows) doesn't give me permission to acces my document folders. Is there a way to fix this?

You can use SATA cable to connect your old hardrive with your current system.

What you need to do

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Back-up harddrive

Is to take ownership of the Old HDD but I can not tell you how to do this as you didn't list the version of Windows you are using.

You'll have to look here for the required information.

There are a lot of Backup Options out there

But as usual it all boils down to what you are comfortable using. Also in this case Backing up the drive will be of no help as the previous version of Windows has locked the drive and untill you take ownership of the files you'll never be able to read them.
