    How do I view pics from hard drive thats in a hard drive USB enclosure

    I have a hard drive off of a non-working laptop that had Windows 10 on it. I am just wanting to get some files off of the hard drive instead of repairing the laptop since it's fairly old. I have put the hard drive into a USB hard drive enclosure and plugged it into my Windows 10 laptop. The hard drive displays and I can select folders and stuff, but when I go to Users it has Default and Public. When I click on both neither have any documents, pictures, videos, etc in their corresponding folders. What am I doing wrong?

    Have you tried enabling "show hidden files" in Explorer view options? Also check to see if the drive is partitioned into more than one partition. THe user folders could be on a different partition than C:\.

    There should be a folder under Users\your user name.
