No File permissions are set for whole hard disk and I am unable to change ownership.
Posted on 2004-04-15
I recently installed a new hard disk and put lots of important data on it. I dont know how, but someone then went onto my computer a changed the NTFS permissions. Basically, they removed them all and I cant gain access to the whole volume!
I have searched google on how to set the permissions. Many sites said I needed to change the ownership for the folder to set the permissions. Whenever I tried to do this it wouldnt let me and I dont know what to do because its so important that I get access to the data on the disc.
I have tried changing it in the Security tab in Safe mode because have windows XP Home.
If anyone knows the answer to this then I would be so greatful!
