Hello,
Please advise how to open "my document" folder locked by windows XP

My windows XP crashed, could not restart / reboot, so I change the hard disk and re-install new windows XP pro on the new hard disk. The old hard disk is now connected by USB cable as the external drive.

When I tried to retrieve my documents from my old hard disk, I cannot access my documents folders. It says "My Documents is not accessible Access is denied"

Does anyone knows how to open this locked folders??

Thanks
Pasebon

try live booting using "ubuntu" CD. you can use ubuntu with out installing it. then connect your old HD via USB and copy the my document folder to any where.

if you dont have an ubuntu cd , request it for free at http://shipit.ubuntu.com
