My brother sent me his hard drive becuase his motherboard crapped out and he needs the data from his hard drive. I plugged it into my computer through an IDE connection and i can see most of the files on the computer. However, the data he needs resides within his "documents and settings" folder, and since it was password protected, i get "Access is Denied" when i try to access it. I know the username and password required for access so I shared out the entire hard drive and tried using the following from the command prompt:
net use "share name" "password" /user:"username"
It said that the command completed successfully but i still wasnt able to access his docs and settings folder. Does anyone know of a way to get his files since i know his username and password?
