    Moved ext data drive (XP machine) to new computer (win 10) Owner Issue


    Hello from a new member and new win 10 user.

    I had an XP machine that died and replaced it with a new Win 10 pro machine.

    I moved the old external data drive to my new computer and now have had lots of "you're not the owner" and "contact the administrator or owner" issues. I often get "you require permission from DESKTOP XXXXXXX" messages.

    The big issue is that I can't even open my password saver program with all my passwords.

    I have tried for weeks to search the web for a simple solution. No Joy.

    We have tried the "Properties/security/ blah blah blah " fixes with no success.

    Also tried applications such as "Take Ownership."

    It seems lots of folks have similar problems, but I can't find the magic bullet.

    I'm very sorry to ask the same old question, but we're at our wits end here.

    I'm obviously not a network administrator or win 10 expert, but I can read and follow instructions so please help this old farmer.

    As someone once said: "Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, You're my only hope." *Confused

    Thanks in advance folks,

    Ken

    :)
     

  2. Windows 10 format failure on external USB HDD

    I have an external USB HDD using a SATA/IDC drive interface to USB. Drive is a known working Seagate Barracuda 500 Gb drive. Been using it for quite a while after originally formatting to NTFS it on an XP machine. Had been able to read the data on it,
    both on the XP machine and on a new Windows 10 machine.

    Decided to wipe the entire drive and reformat it still as NTFS but from the Win 10 machine. Seemed ok, and loaded a bunch of files on it from the main data drive on that machine.

    Removed the drive, and plugged into the old XP machine, but that now complains the drive must be formatted before use.

    Put it back in the Win 10 machine, and it works fine, showing all the data.

    Back in the XP machine, same problem.

    So reformatted it again using the XP machine, put some data on it, and reads perfectly in the Win 10 machine - wrote some more data on it from there, and that too reads ok on the XP machine.

    Repeated that cycle a couple of times, but the drive refuses be read in the XP machine when formatted on the Win 10 machine. What gives ?

    Do I need to reserve an ancient XP machine just so I can format a drive and have it work across a couple of machines ???
