My laptop's Windows 7 install has given up the ghost. I have another laptop with XP on. I have taken the HDD from the Windows 7 Laptop and have that sitting in an external HDD Docking Caddy, connected to my XP Laptop via USB.

Obviously, the laptop I wish to access through the docking station has NTFS on.

How can I access the files on there.

I don't wish to do this via Linux in any way.

I don't wish to alter the HDD contents or permissions - I want to fix the Windows 7 Laptop at some point (it's probably a driver or something..).
