hi guys, need a little help, im going crazy here....

I have an 80GB hard drive that i had in my old computer with all my work files on, i have recently sold that computer to a friend and taken the 80GB out.

The hard drive is only a data drive and has no windows installation installed, it is partitioned using NTFS into 20GB partitions.

The problem is i have put it in my old computer (which is lower spec) and tried to backup some of the things off the HD.

I can access every drive partition normally but when i try to go into some of the folder (only a few, most of them work fine) i get a message telling me that the folder is not accessible and access is denied.

does anyone have any ideas why this might be?

thanks in advance

John
