Let's assume said files are in MY DOCUMENTS of the account JOHN and the old drive is now recognized by Windows as DRIVE D:
You must be a member of the LOCAL ADMINISTRATORS group
Open D drive, open DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGs folder, open JOHN. Right click on JOHN's DOCUMENTS, choose SECURITY. Add your account name by clicking the ADD button. Give yourself FULL CONTROL, by checking ALLOW.
Occassionally, you may need to take the additional step, when you've done what you've done in moving a harddrive, of removing the previous username account from the list--that account will be visible but grayed out.

Thanks for the information, but my problem is gaining access to the folder itself. When I try to open it I get the access denied message. I have tried everything by right clicking on the folder.
Yes you are correct that I am talking about user account passwords under Documents and Settings.
