Hello - I have a Dell Inspiron 3650 Windows 10 desktop computer that over the last 24 hours it started running very slow and I started to hear a clicking sound coming from it. My fears were confirmed when I ran a Dell diagnostics test on it and it gave me error code 2000-0142 which means a bad hdd. So I've taken the hdd out of the console and put it into an external case which I have plugged into a laptop computer. It seems to be spinning just fine and in windows explorer I can see the files, but when I click on them it says "you don't currently have permission to access this folder". What steps should I take next to try and save my files? Please help. TIA
