I recently purchased a new external hard drive and I set about transferring
files from my old XP computer to my new hard drive that I then connected to
my Sony Vaio laptop. Most files on the new hard drive are accessible on my
Vista laptop, but a large group (100 Gig) of video editing folders and files
are not accessible. I get these messages:
"You don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click "continue"
to gain access."
Then "You have been denied permission to access this folder - To gain access
you will need to use the security tab."
I have tried to follow the instructions on the help file: "Take ownership of
a file or folder", but although I have at least managed to get the video
files visible, Windows Media Player cannot play them. I can't do anything
with these files, not even delete them or copy them!!
Can anyone give me some advice please, this unexpected problem is driving me
