  1. Change ownership of data partition restored from W7 machine


    Im back again, after having successfully used Macrium R to restore the backup image of my data from Windows 7 laptop to Windows 10 laptop. I now need help to reconfigure the ownership of the partition (DChange ownership of data partition restored from W7 machine :), the main folders and subfolders and files within.

    Heres the screenshot of the drive Ds Properties Advance Security settings dialog window.


    Change ownership of data partition restored from W7 machine [​IMG]


    FYI: I had moved the default location of Document Folder to D: on Windows 7 (for both user accounts standard and administrator) and intend to do the same on Windows 10 afterwards. Please note the hidden files (shown in red text in screenshot below) that were also in the data D: drive on Windows 7 machine when I made the backup image.


    Change ownership of data partition restored from W7 machine [​IMG]


    First a couple of housekeeping questions: 1) Since the hidden files are tied to the user profiles on Windows 7 machine, is it safe for me to delete them on this drive on Windows 10?

    and 2) Is it also safe to remove the two "Account unknown" in the list of permissions entries (probably again, associated with W7 machine user profiles)?

    Additionally, I have two user accounts created on W10: a standard and an administrator accounts, but most likely would be using the standard one 95% of the time. I would like to give full control to both profiles so that Id be able to access the data D: partition, regardless of which account I may be logged into.

    Main questions: To which account should I change the ownership? What other actions do I need to do through this dialog window?

    Currently my System Specs shows W7 laptop information and 2nd PC specs shows the W10 laptop info. If there is a particular sequence of steps to do, please specify the order. I only did this once 5+ years ago when I had to move from XP to W7 and only with help from SevenForums gurus. Much gratitude for your guidance!

    :)

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that
