Access Denied, Windows 8, on hard drive?

"Access Denied" to my old hard drive. My Windows 8 computer died last week. So, I bought a HD enclosure so I could retrieve all of my files. But when I hook it up to my laptop it says, ACCESS DENIED". When I try to change the SHARING and PERMISSIONS to EVERYONE I got the message, "An error occurred while trying to share Q. Access Denied."

This is MY HD with MY files. I know the password. How do I access all of my files?

Download a Linux image from one of the Linux sites, burn it to a CD to create a live Linux boot disc, boot your computer from the Linux disc. You should be able to access your files and copy them to your new hard drive.

If it wasn't encrypted you could try taking ownership of it.

I had this exact problem. The program I have on my computer that fixed it is called Unlocker 1.9.2

Probably a computer virus that corrupts or otherwise locks the hard drive. I have encountered this before and still have no solution to the problem.In other words I can't gain access to my western digital hard drive for more than a few minutes at a time before the virus locks it again.

I am sure that gives 'play of game' no end of amusement.
