Old drive 'USERS' folder not found

Hi there,

I'm running Win 7 Home Prem 64, I attached my old C drive to retrieve some files from the USERS folder but it's not showing, I've tried a few things to take ownership of the drive etc but it's still not there. Anyone know how to solve this?

Cheers,
Dean
