    so I got another new harddrive.. installed it.. everything is fine... I then tried to access the files on the old harddrive.. and copy my old important data on it.. like college papers.. docs... and old pictures... and so on... it kept saying the folder is access denied... and when I tried to copy the document and setting folder... it kept saying.. it is in use.. or protected... how do I get around to this?? :( :confused: .. I really need the files....
    thanks in advance for the help!

    How long are you letting it run? If you have a bajillion files, it could take a while.
