Hello to all,

I have removed a hard drive from a computer and replaced it with a new one and the old one is now in an external enclosure.

My issue arrises when trying to view the files. I HAVE been able to get ownership of the files but only one folder at a time rather than the whole drive and its file structure, so I can get to the security tab in properties.

So...How do I take ownership of the entire drive and all its folders and files?

Thanks to all!

I am having an issue with sub-folders. I can go to some sub-folders i.e. My Documents then one sub-folder there but I can go sub-folder in My Documents then another sub-folder I get access denied.
