My Documents from Win XP Home to Win XP Pro

By ken ·
I saved 2 gigs of My Documents contents to a USB thumb drive
intending to transport them from my older Win XP Home computer to
my new Win XP Pro computer.

I was surprised to see that the USB thumb drive had contents but
none of the files would show. Thinking that the thumb drive had
failed I slaved the hard drive from the Win XP Home computer to the
Win XP Pro computer and same thing - no files to be seen.

In the meantime I tossed the older Win XP home CPU although I saved
the hard drive.

I am reading now that the file structure for My Documents is different
between Win XP Home and Win XP Pro. Argh.

I ***really*** want to get the My Documents files off of my Win XP
Home hard drive. Any other options rather than finding another Win
XP Home computer, slaving the drive, and then burning to a writable
CD or DVD?
