    Upgraded an old PC running XP to Win 7 installed on a new hard drive. Old XP harddrive retained as secondary storage. I have photos and other data on the old drive but can't open any. Windows says I do not have access permission to file location. Have already gone through windows sharing and security but the problem persists.

    Have you tried taking ownership of the files?
