Cant access my documents on old drive
Sorry if the title was a bit long. I recently installed a new HD, as my old one was reaching bursting point. I have left the old one in, with the intention of copying anything I needed over, then using it as a back up. There were a few problems along the way, mainly due to my ineptitude with getting the jumpers right, but it was all ok in the end, or so I thought. My system is now happy to recognise 2 hard drives and 2 DVD drives. However...
I can access the old HD now named F, and copy programs etc over no trouble. The trouble is, I can't access the old my documents folder, which has all my photos on it! If I uplug the new one it will let me boot up the old one, and go into my documents, which I will have to do at some time if I can't sort it. But, I'd rather know why this has happend, and if there is a cure. I'm getting an access denied message. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
