Locked folder

By eifman69 ·
I had a HDD crash and I am trying to recover My Pictures. I have piggy backed the drive on another XP machine, when I try to access the folder I get access denied, I have tried using the password from the crashed HDD to non avail. Is there a way I can unlock the password on the folder. I have admin rights.

Just a hint

Maybe the Owner of the folder is an account (SID) that does not exist in your machine.

Taking the ownership of the folder with your user or the administrators group can help.
