> Greetings all...
This may well be a naïve, beginners type question? but please bear with me..

> Situation:
Time for a new hard drive, and a nice, new install of Win XP pro
Works great, fully patched, etc.
> Users set up exactly as per old system (user names, passwords, etc)
> Old hard drive (with old XP install) dropped back in (as non-boot drive)
> to allow gradual pulling over of odd bits of data onto new drive.
> However, when I attempt to browse folders under my old profile on the old
> drive, XP refuses access.
> I'm logged in as an administrator, with the same username and password as
> I was on the old install.
> So why won't XP let me share and access those folders?
Any help, solutions gratefully received!
