I have document files on a hard drive from a Windows Vista device that I want to transfer to a new Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium device. I connected the Vista drive in the Windows 7 computer by using the CD Drive bay connections and the Windows 7 device recognized the drive and all files are viewable/openable. I did a copy/paste of the entire user folder from the Vista drive to a folder called Old PC on the C:\ of the Windows 7 device. The process completed as expected with the count of files and Gb worth of data. When I view data inside the c:\Old PC\"folder" the folder is empty and the display reads "folder is empty". If i do a properties on the c:\Old PC\"folder" the properties show multiple files and Gb worth of data exist, but I can never see the files in the folder. I have changed permissions on the c:\Old PC folder to be full control for the the local USERS group in an effort to totaly by pass any permissions issues.
How can I make the files viewable/usable?
