I recently transferred my old hard rive to my new computer. The hard-drive picks up and I can access the the hard-drive until I click on documents< owner. It says access denied. I go to the security tab and all I see is "you do not have permission to view or edit this objects permission settings". How can I access my old documents?
I've made myself owner! I can change ownership when I go into safe mode, but I have to do this for EVERY SINGLE FOLDER! Is there a way I can claim ownership to ALL folders in stead of doing it for every individual one.
In the box that lets you choose what the new owner will be, there's a checkbox labelled "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects". Make sure that box is checked when you click the "OK" button to change the owner.
