  1. If you are trying to access a user folder that was created on a different computer or a different user account, you must first take ownership of the folder: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/windows-and-office/quick-tip-take-ownership-of-files-and-folders-in-windows/
  2. Hey, I know this is an old thread but I'm having the same problem. I tried taking ownership of the folder, but then when I tried changing the permissions it wouldn't let me, saying that access was denied. I can change the individual permissions for each photo but I have thousands that I need changed.
