file access help

Hi guys,

My laptop harddrive fails to load up vista and there are some very
important items of coursework on my desktop that I stupidly forgot to
back up.

So I remove my laptop harddrive and plug it into my desktop as a
secondary harddrive and lo and behold I can access my music and pictures
etc. However, the important files that I need are still on the desktop.
I can get into the users folder on the laptop drive however whenever I
try to access my username to get to my desktop I get the following error
"you don't currently have permission to access this folder". Now I know
my password for my user profile on my laptop and I assume this is the
reason I am being denied access as I need to unlock it however there is
no option to put a password in.

It then tells me to click continue to get access to this folder however
nothing happens. I have tried to alter security permissions as per
another thread I've been reading and have also tried to follow the steps
detailed in the following thread
http://www.vistax64.com/vista-securi...s-folders.html
however all to no avail (although I may not be following the steps
correctly)

I am pretty sure the laptop harddrive is on the way out as it freezes
on CHKDSK and the fact vista wont load - so would like to recover these
files before it completely bites the dust!

Any help will be greatly appreciated. If you need more info, please let
me know.

Thank you

I suggest that you find a HDD Data Recovery Service and let them retrive
the data -- use the phone book.
