Retrieving files from SATA drive with WHS 2008 OS installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • The motherboard in my HP 495EX died.  The system was running Windows Home Server with two SATA hard drives.  I am able to attach the primary SATA drive (the one with WHS OS installed) to my WIN 7 desktop machine using a cable and I can see the shared folders.  However, I am unable to copy any of the files over to my desktop.  I have tried manipulating the file ownership and permissions but nothing works (I am already an administrator on both systems).  Please help...this has been really aggravating.  I am able to easily recover data from the second SATA drive (without the WHS OS installed).
