    I am trying to copy files from my laptop harddrive (Windows XP) to my desktop (Windows 7). The laptop crashed but I have the files and is connected via USB. I can see all the files but when I try to remove the Read Only option so I can manipulate the files I get the error, "You will need to provide administrator permission to change these attributes." How do I do this so I can access and move the data?
