Hey well my laptop completly screwed up on me. I removed the HD and put it in 1 of my external HD's cases so i could access it and get the files etc i need from it.... The problem begings. I conected the removed hard drive to a working laptop and it would not open up the folder, a quick google and i found a solution, cmd and check (E) for errors or something any way it took a while but it worked and i can now access the drive. However it is not showing all of my files, various downloads, family pictures, music etc. Even when searching the drive for spesific file names i know exist, nothing. I have set hidden folders to be viewable aswell so i know they are not hidden. And the memory on the drive is the same as before the laptop broke so i know there on it still. The laptop had several user accounts, 3 to be exact, each with passwords and the folders set to private. Could this be the reason some of the files aren't showing up? Any ideas how i can access them so i can move them to the working laptop. Thanks, Chris.
