My old computer crashed. I now have a new computer and I wanted to retrieve contents of the HDD of the old computer.
So I connected the old HDD to new computer. I see its folders, but they are mostly empty. Home folder is empty as well. The drive also contains a 2Gb file named swapfile.
Is it possible that I just don't see the contents of the Home folder? Because of some user rights issue or smth like that? If so, how can I see the contents?
Is it possible that due to crash the files may be somewhere else (for instance, in this huge swapfile)? If so, how can I recover them? And if not, where else can they be?
