Default HD Drive recovery security


I am in the process of removing a HD from a bad box and slaving it in another
system. The one profile I need access to (my own) wont let me into it. I have
access to the contents of everything else on that drive, but not this one.
The error message reads that i do not have permission- access denied. I am
using a IDE to USB external conversion housing. Is there anyway I can get
into this data- three years of good stuff there!

My account is defaulted to admin- is there another setting as there is no
"Security" tab in the properties display.

What operating system? In the case of Windows XP home you'll need to start
safe mode.

Restart the computer and F8 at windows starting, then choose 'Safe Mode'
boot, then logon as local administrator. The security tab should now be
available so you can take ownership.

When I restart and press F8, th compter starts normally with a screen that
tells me I have opted to change settings. Please select to the approprite
setting - normal / limited / custom- I chose limited as that seems to be
closest to the safe mode I remember. I then restart the computer again and it
comes up with limited driver support. There is no "local admin" logon- the
only account is the one I configured when I got it. This is a laptop
(Toshiba) and could there be differences in the windows? I am going totry the
f8 route again, but will have to try some other option soon.
