Accessing Windows XP Desktop files on former drive connected by USB RRS feed

  • Question

  • My XP HOME laptop died. I need files off the drive.  I removed the functioning drive and used a USB adaptor to connect it to my desktop.  The files I need are stored on the desktop in my password protected account.  Since the laptop is dead and I'm accessing the file from a different make and model computer, I can't boot from this hard drive (or don't know how) to view the desktop and access the files from this login account.  I've tried changing the properties and sharing the files to no avail
