Copy documents folder off HDD as Slave

By Casemaker ·
I have a pc running xp home. I had a failed xp sp2 install and cannot boot normally or safe mode. I cannot un-install it. I connected the hdd to another pc as a master on ide 2 and tried to copy the my docs folder. I can copy 3 other users but not mine. Iit says access denied. I have blanked out the password but still cannot get access.

Denied access may mean that you will need to logon as administrator.

Open the Control Panel to Change Password,logged in as Adminsitrator.

To work around this issue if the new volume appears in Disk Management, specify a different drive letter for the new device or volume. To do this, follow these steps:
Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
Under Computer Management (Local), click Disk Management.
In the list of drives in the right pane, right-click the new drive and then click Change Drive Letter and Path(s).
Click Change, and in the drop-down box, select a drive letter for the new drive that is not assigned to a mapped network drive.
Click OK, and then click OK again.
Both the mapped network drives and the recently installed drive appear in Windows Explorer

You need to take ownership of folders/files with drive connected to other PC. Appears that folders are locked based on your user account on original PC. Even if you create a user account with same name, won't be able to access.

However, M$ in their wisdom has provided a fix. I've used it a number of times to access files on customers corrupted Windows XP installations.

Have you tried connecting this hard drive as a slave on IDE1 to become a slave to the master boot drive?
Give that a try.
