How come when I connect my old hard drive to my new computer I see files that are not mine?

Q: I just tried to recover an old internal hard drive from a Compaq desktop. When I connected the hard drive to my laptop, I discovered that the files on the hard drive are all someone else’s. Pictures, music, documents, everything is someone else’s. None of my files are there. How is this possible?

    Your ‘My Documents’ will be located in the \Documents and Settings\YourUserName\My Documents folder on the old hard drive.
