I had two desktops, one XP and another Vista. The XP machine started to freeze frequently and eventually refused to boot. Repairing it didn't work so I decided to transfer the files from the hard disk I needed and then reinstall XP afterwards. I connected the disk to the Vista machine to transfer the file (most are in the profile folders).
Every time I try to access the profile folders on the old disk, Vista is telling me I don't have permission to access it. The security tab lists some Unknown Users having full control for these folder. I am unable to change the permission for those folders.
I am doing this as an administrator on the Vista machine. All I want to do is copy the files from the XP profile folders on the old disk to the Vista PC. Can you help please?
