I just replaced my Windows XP computer with Vista and now have my previous XP hard drive as an external (now drive G). I couldn't access the drive at first but have since gone through all the security/permissions/etc. I finally get to the actual files (pictures, Word docs) but STILL cannot access the files. I have checked and they show I have full control. I have read a couple of threads and the links that referred to somewhat this same issue and have followed the steps outlined as far as I can tell, but I must be missing something! Can anyone help me please??? :)
