  1. Gaining permission to an old hard drive files


    Hi.

    I have an old hard drive with which I decided to copy it's data to a new HDD, I had a OS installed on it (probably windows xp) when I decided not to use it.

    Now that I decide to copy its data from C drive, It says you don't have access and you need to fix the premission through Security tab. It is annoying to do this for every file.

    So I decided to do this for the Whole C drive, and checked "apply this to sub-folders", but when I check this option, it shows "You don't have premission access the folders".

    But I could change the premission of a signle file or folder, How can I solve this problem?

    :)

    Gaining permission to WD hard drive


    What I had to do here with my WD passport drive was go into Windows Explorer and type in the drives IP address in the top bar , this then forced the system to ask me for the logon details, after which the PC was able to access the drives as normal.
