My hard drive (containing Windows 10), doesn't boot anymore and I have many important files in the Downloads folder and on the Desktop of my user account. And the account is password protected. So I'm not sure if I can use a SATA to USB device to connect the drive to another computer and expect those folders to just open (since they're under a password protected user account).
How can I gain access to the files in those folders again? And yes I do have the password to said Windows account obviously. Thank you.
