Recover windoes password protected files from external enclosure

By kasper.wichmann ·

After a failed update to Win 8.1, I am trying to recover those files, which unfortunately were not backed up.

To do this I have inserted the SSD in an enclosure, but even though the whole folder structure shows up, I can not see any of the actual files or folders in Documents or any Pictures in Pictures etc. I.e all the files in the User folder are "not there" and despite this I can see it is more than 11GB of data.

I have the windows password and have tried to take ownership of the various folders, but this did not help. I have also tried to transfer them to another computer and take ownership, but this also did not work.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
