Cannot Access Old Hard Drive Documents

October 23rd, 2012

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?

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.
