Windows 7: help with recovering user accounts after hdd replacement.

help with recovering user accounts after hdd replacement.

I recently replaced my hard drive and used an easy connect system to pull data from the old drive. My only problem was when I attempted to retrieve user accounts that have passwords. I re-installed win 7 hp on the new disc and I have been able to get everything except password protected user accounts. I have as yet been unable to open or copy the 4 user accounts on the old drive. Is there anything I can do in the security settings or something else. Any advice or insights would be appreciated. (I did backup photos and videos, but not some of the recent documents that I really need.)
