    Recovering user files from old hard drive from dead PC


    I had an all-in-one PC that died about a year ago and have just managed to get my hands on a hard drive caddy to try and recover the files that I had on the old PC's HDD. However, when I go into the disk I cannot access the files - when I try to go into my old user profile on the file explorer, it simply doesn't go anywhere no errors - just doesn't access it. The public area does access correctly though.I need to know if I have to do something with profiles to be able to access the data - what I'm trying to recover is a series of picture sets that I don't have anywhere else. Not the end of t
