I got a hard drive from my uncle that he wants me to recover the data. It came from his dell. So I slave it in one of my own computers, and when I try to open one of the folders, it says access denied. How do I get past this?

yes, right click on the drive and enter the properties, select the security tab then click on advanced, select the owner tab, change the owner to yourself and dont forget to tick the little box for "replace owner on subcontainers and objects"

i assume you're running xp pro
