NEW PC Issue
I have built a windows VISTA Basic PC for my sister. I just received the
hardrive from her previous PC and installed the drive as slave. I want to
transfer files, favorites, email account info etc but am not able to access
those folder because of insufficient rights. The old hard drive has windows
XP home edition installed on it. How can i gain rights on the new computer
to gain full access to all files etc on the old PC hard drive. There is alot
of data in ducments and setting especially that I want to transfer to the new
system. Thanks in advance...lightfla@comcast.net

It's an issue of ownership and permissions. You need to take ownership of
those files/folders and give the account sufficient access permissions. Go
to Start | Help and Support. Search on permissions for info on how to do
this.
