I am trying to get files off a HD from a laptop whose MB died.

I was able to get the laptop HD via USB slaved to another laptop. The problem I am having is transferring some files. I have a folder where none of the contents can be viewed or transferred. When I click on the properties of the folder, read only is checked. I uncheck it and hit apply but it doesn't allow me to save it. If I go back into properties read only is still checked. Any idea how to fix this so I can transfer the files?

If I mouse over any file, it says they are encrypted. If I right click a file and hit properties, then advanced it has files are encrypted to secure data box checked. I cannot uncheck it

Isn't the problem with that though is that I would have to boot from the HD? I cannot. ANd I don't think I can simply just pull the HD out of one laptop and just pop this one in right? It won't boot will it?
