If you are using XP Pro
Click on Tools, Folder Options.
Select the View Tab
Down the bottom of the Advanced Settings list, untick use simple file sharing
Click OK

If you are using XP Home
Follow this link first

The easiest way to do it is download program called puppy linux . Burn it to a CD then boot your computer to that CD. It will over look windows settings.

You can also access locked user profile areas by the administrative share back door:
Start>Run>\\YourPCName\c$

If you're a local administrator it should allow you to access your ENTIRE hard drive via a UNC path and with fulladministrative permissions everywhere.
This may help you to copy files freely anywhere you want to.

You must take ownership on files in old drive. Properties->security tab->Advanced->Owner tab . Select your account as new owner and check "replace owner on subcontainers and objects".
