Hard drive password giving me problems
I have recently replaced the hard drive in my laptop and it works wonderful. I now want to use my old 2.5 inch drive as a external harddrive. Well, I bought a 2.5" external case for it. I slid the drive in it and it works perfectly except for one thing. I have always password protected my user account in windows. Now when I try to get into My Documents on the old drive just to make sure there is nothing left there before I format it, I get an error saying:
E:\Documents and Settings\Brian is not accessible.
Access is denied.
I know the password I used for it, but there has to be some other way to get past that than to actually pull the drive out of the external drive, put it back in my laptop and then remove the password and then install both drives again. Any suggestions.
I know this really isn't "hacking/security" in the sense of network security, but I believe this would probably be the best place to ask since it does deal with personal security. lol
Let me know what you think. Thanks.
