Hi folks. I just recently, (as in today) had the internal hard drive from my laptop, which is now defunct, put into a nice shiny external hard drive case with the usb connection. Its ace, it gets read by the computer, and I can tell all my stuff is still there. HOWEVER, the stuff I actually need to get in to is in my documents, and it won’t let me in that because it was a passworded account when I was using it. The HDD still has all of the xp stuff on it, but bumping it to the top of the boot sequence, whilst starting the load from this external one, packs up before I can get at the accounts to shut off the passwords.
Anyone got any ideas as to how I can go about getting in and recovering all of my data please?
