I made a backup to external hard drive of my mother's computer, before a conversion to Windows 7.
At home in Austin I have transferred the folders, files to my dual boot Vista/Windows 7. I notice that even after taking ownership of the backup, that looking over permissions I am the owner, also the Administrator of my computer, but I need to find a way to have the inherited from apply to my account, as it is clear that not all folders and files are visible.
Does anyone know what I need to do so that the entire hard drive has permissions for me applied to all folders and files on that specific hard drive?
It is not the boot or system hard drve. I want to make sure I am not just the owner, but any inherited permissions apply to all folders and fles with an NTFS file system.
I used to have some script several years ago when I applied this to servers I was working with. I just need to do this with one hard drive and Windows 7.
