Windows 2000/moving files from unkown win 2k to win 7


Is it possible to get files off of a windows 2000 hardrive to hooking up to a windows 7 pc, with unknown/lost password to the windows 2000 pro?

Hi Chuck,

Yes, if you install the Windows 2000 hard drive as a secondary drive to the Windows 7 drive, it should pick it up in My Computer. You should see a new drive (or two depending on how many partitions there are) for the Windows 2000 hard drive.
