How can I change an entire drive so that all users have the ability to read/write any file that is there?

I have a drive /mnt/drive2 that has some files created by root, and some created by my user account.  I would like every single file to be rw by my user account.  How do I go about doing this?

Thank you!

If you want to change the ownership of all of the data execute (as root) chown -R my-account-name /mnt/drive2.
