To eliminate all possibility of permissions issues you could enable the Full system administrator account (the equivalent of the root user,on unix), this should allow you to see all folders

Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

Hi

I tried but it wont let me get to that - say i have home premium windows 7 and i must go thru control panel to manage user accounts

Ok

In an elevated command prompt - (type "cmd" without quotes into the start search bar and right click the "cmd.exe" entry that appears, Select "run as administrator", and accept the UAC prompt) - in the command prompt box type "Net user administrator /active:yes" again without prompts and enter.

Log off and log back on as the Administrator account.

This should give full access to the D: drive

If you can see the missing folder then you can adjust the permissions to add control to your normal user

I would then advise you disable the Administrator account - As above but the command is "Net user administrator /active:no"

Have just read this thread and I see that you said your old PC was dying. If it hasn't yet given up the ghost could you not put the HD back in the old machine, confirm the folder is there and burn it to a disc, just a thought if all else fails!

Mitchell's approach above is what I would do now, before doing anything else.

What is the problem with your old machine? Has the SATA HD been tested using maker's diag/repair full CD scan? Do this next after retrieving your data using old machine.
