Accessing user folders on external harddrive

Posted: 11-18-2008, 05:41 PM
I have a vista harddrive from my laptop that has failed to boot vista yet it
is still accessible through a external usb enclosure. I am trying to get at
the user\local settings folder from a different computer(XP) to get to my
Outlook 2003 datafiles.

Those folders are not accessible. I know the usernames and passwords for
those user accounts. How can I access these through windows explorer to be
able to copy the outlook data files to my new harddisk. I am guessing I need
to input a user and password someplace?

You need to take ownership. Look it up in Windows Help...
