My laptop had issues and it was going to cost more to fix then getting a new one so they put my hard drive in an external drive. Problem, I can't retrieve any of my files or pictures that were in my pass word protected files on old drive when I access it with my desktop. Is there a way I can access the bio's or bypass something to get them back? I have pics on there of my children that weren't backed up on cd yet and some word docs. PLEASE HELP !!!!

So you can access that drive, and take files off it, but they are password protected? You'll have to look at password recovery software for those files.

When you say "password protected"; in what way are they protected?
For example, are they in a encrypted archive (such as ZIP or RAR)? Are they protected via Windows User Accounts?

More information please.
