How to access second hard-drive without permission?
  

I have two computer-systems with two different OS-Vista for home and XP for office use. The motherboard of my office system is dead. So when I try to copy the data on my Vista's hard-disk or access it, it does not allow me, even when I am admin and have full control to my computer system.
How do I access that hard drive,without permission ?

Probably,your second/office hard-disk would be password protected(in order of securing any confidential data).

Re: How to access second hard-drive without permission?

It seems to be ownership issue.

If you must access a file or a folder that you do not have rights to, you must take ownership of that file or folder. When you do this, you replace the security permissions that were originally created for the file or folder.


How to take ownership of a file/folder

You must have ownership of a protected file/folder in order to access it.
If another user has restricted access and you are the computer administrator, you can access the file by taking ownership.

To take ownership of a file/folder, follow these steps:
  • Right-click the file that you want to take ownership of, and then click Properties.
  • Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message (if one appears).
  • Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.

For files:In the Name list, click Administrator, or click the Administrators group, and then click OK.

For folders:In the Name list, click your user name, or click Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group. If you want to take ownership of the contents of the folder, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.
Click OK, and then click Yes when you receive the following message:
You do not have permission to read the contents of directory folder name. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control?
All permissions will be replaced if you click Yes.

The administrator or the administrators group now owns the file/folder.
