    I have a clients harddrive (XP Home) to extract their data.
    I just got a Win 7 laptop for servicing computers and discovered I bought a nightmare.
    I cannot set sharing access to the clients drive in order to extract their files.
    Any ideas on accessing other drives from Win 7?
    I have connected this one by USB and even cloned it to empty space on my Win 7 drive.
    I have been through advanced sharing at the root and every folder I can get to.

    Whatever I do I still get access denied.

    Maybe booting from a Linux Live CD would allow easier access to the drive.
