When trying to backup files from my D:\(Data) partition to my E:\(backup partition) I get the Access Denied error message.  But when I do the right-click-->properties--> I don't have an advanced tab or any option to take ownership.  How can I remove the security on these folder/files?

I am running XP Pro on my C:\ (physically seperate)
D:\ is the drive containing the folder I'm trying to back-up (physically different drive then c:\)
E:\ is the Backup Data Drive (physically different drive then C: and D:\

I have removed all attributes.
