Problem Accessing Data from a corrupt SATA drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a corrupt 250gb SATA drive that has Windows XP installed on it. I have important data that I am trying to retrieve from it so I purchased a new 500gb SATA drive and installed Windows Vista Home on the new drive. I connected the old drive as a secondary drive and tried to retreive the data from it. When I do it is giving me an error stating "Access Denied". I am unable to hook the old drive up as a primary drive and retrieve the data so I wanted  to set it up in an external enclosure and retrieve it that way. Thanks.
