I had a hard disk going bad. Installed a new hard drive and the need to transfer files from the old hard drive. I have an external enclosure for the old hard drive and can connect by usb port.
The process is fairly simple once you put the old drive in the external box. You can use the usual methods of copy and paste in Windows Explorer. If you copy files, complete folders, you can take a look at RichCopy.
Transfer of files from the old HARD DRIVE to new computer without an old computer. (He's dead - can not use) I have the hard drive, but need help to transfer my old files and settings.
· My old Win XP computer died - it is completely unusable. I bought a new PC with Win 7 Pro and 1 TB. I still have the old HARD DRIVE (250 GB) which I have attached on the new computer using an external enclosure supports SATA drives. The external hard drive is connected to the computer in USB 3.0. I checked that the new computer can see the external hard drive. (I also used for backups by changing the hard drive with a 2 TB drive 'mass storage' - that works.)
I searched the internet for possible solutions and found no help. If the transfer of files from Microsoft would change the disc to analyze, it would be simple. But if I select the OLD computer it scans the disk I'm on (new) - automatically.
Is there anyone who has had the same problem? He must be because computers die all the time and people buy new computers - who then, somehow, they get the former transferred files. I could do it manually, but that wouldn't change the settings. Last resort would be to buy an old computer XP (SATA), replace the drive. Transfer the files, and then sell this computer.
You may be able to recover your data files, but I hope that you will set up your new system to automatically backup a second internal hard drive or an external USB hard drive.
This suggestion may not work, but it's worth a try. Buy an external USB drive enclosure. They come in two sizes 2.5 "for the portable computer drives and 3.5" for desktop disks. You can purchase adapters for 3.5 "envelopes so that they can also be used with a portable player. Place the hard drive in the enclosure and connect to a USB port of another computer. Several hard disks are more able to start, but the contents of the disc can still be accessed, read and copied from the disk because you do not use the operating system on a failed disk.
Here is an example of the type of device, I suggest:
You need only to the speaker, that you see are not necessarily more expensive. Thereafter, you can put an old hard drive usable, an abandoned because you need a larger drive internal, in the enclosure and use it as additional external storage.
Original title: crash and recovery of hard drive problem
My hard drive crashed it wouldn't boot saying config.sys is damaged or corrupted, I tried to fix it but the sector is damaged. I was using XP, I had a password on my settings. I installed a new hard drive and reinstalled windows XP, but even if I can 'see' the old hard drive (always installed) I can't access my documents, how can I get to them? I know the password but since its an account on another drive it won't give me the chance to log on to the account.
Assuming that you use the Encrypting File System (EFS) then this article should solve your problem:

Can I switch from hard drives overall if they are compatible or y at - it an advance to do and how... help!
The only way I know, it's that you buy an external HARD drive enclosure where you can put in the old HDD. Connect the HARD drive old this is the case with the USB cable to your laptop new and then you can copy your documents and photos.
These cases are not expensive and s for external HARD drive are very practical.

As far as I know that you must add the Group everyone in the folder options. Right-click on the folder-online security-online advanced-online (effective) permissions
There, you must add the user to the other laptop or for example all users. Then it should work.
I had this problem for 1 or 2 years and it worked for me.
A friend of mine told me that he was able to copy the data to a Linux system. You can start form a Linux boot CD/DVD, and then copy the data on the other PC.
New computer installed Windows 7 and gave me an option to use Windows easy transfer to transfer files, data, programs, etc. from my old computer. All I have from the old computer's hard drive; a lightning strike fried either food or his mother by car. I have attached the hard as a disk to the new computer using the usb cable provided with the external hard drive case. It is recognized as drive E: on the new computer.
Trying to follow the instructions given by the Windows Easy Transfer software. Get the software/folder from the old hard drive (drive E), but trying to run the software that I can't seem to do anything on the old disk. When asked what is the former or the new computer - I respond to old, but no new file is created for the transfer. When I answer again, a new file is created on the new computer (rather than the old HDD) and then he transferred again to new. I can't create a file of whatever it is I want to transfer from the old HDD.
I can't use an easy transfer cable because the old computer does not only the hard drive. I can't connect to a network for the same reason. I only have the hard that I can attach to the new computer. But I can't get the new computer to process the old hard drive separately for transfer purposes. The only other option I can think of is to attach the old HDD to another computer, and then try to run the software in this way, but I don't want just the stuff on the old hard drive a copy to the other computer.
Can anyone help? Suggest how to get the old hard drive files, data, transferred etc. to the new computer. What are the steps?
Do yourself a favor, with the old drive connected externally, in the browser, simply copy the data files to the location of Documents of the PC win7. You can not copy programs, they need to be reinstalled from media origonal. You can copy all the downloaded files instalation

I tried to upgrade Windows 2000 Pro, XP Pro on my hard drive. XP would install, but would break to the BSOD with a STOP of the F4 code. BCupdate2 says that the startup code is up to date. NTDLR and boot.ini and NTDETECT.COM are present on the old hard drive. After 2 days of searching and trying different solutions, I bought a new hard drive and installed XP Pro top. System is now running. I want to make my programs from the old hard drive to the new hard disk as well as shortcuts, system settings, user accounts, and user data. I want the new HDD to resemble the old hard disk would look like had XP installed successfully. I have a utility provided with the hard drive, but it says it will take the BONES of the old drive and put it on the new drive that would make my non-operational system. Any help? The history of the old drive is 64 XP was installed originally, but some of my programs wouldn't not below so I installed Windows 2000 Pro. Which was great for several years, but the new versions of the software I use has stopped running less than 2000.
