Problem with Windows Easy Transfer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using Vista Home Premium.  Before doing a wipe, ran Windows Easy Transfer on our hard drive, copied all our data to an external hard drive, then wiped our C drive and reinstalled Windows Vista.   

    Now we are trying to recover files; found the MIG file and double clicked it. 

    Easy Transfer ran through a few files with no problem but then started getting stuck on file after file; sitting for several minutes; and then popping up the following error message:

    "Windows Easy Transfer - Transfer failed for c:...........  Access is denied.  Click Continue to skip this file and resume the transfer."

    We don't really care about the java files or the Word Clipart files but we MUST get the Word files back and really really want the music files back. 

    How can we make Easy Transfer run properly, or else open it up and get our crucial Word data files out?

    Thanks in advance.
