Hey people, i really hope you guys can help me... This is what happend.. My computer got a virus and when i open it, theres a NTLDR Missing showing in the start. So i decided to buy a new HDD which is now my primary and i formated it. I got my old one and used it as a slave. I scanned it already but i want to get my old files. So I went to the drive's Documents and Settings folder and tried opening the main user folder from the old HDD. I can't open it because i think i put a password when i wanted to log in before. I don't know if you guys understand but I really don't know how to explain it. Hope you guys can teach me how to copy that floder of mine to my new HDD. Thanks everyone!
