XP SP2 Private Files Recovery
Posted on 2006-04-07
One of the guys here at work has a Dell Latitude D600 notebook with XP SP2. The HD began to fail, so Dell sent out a replacement. I installed the new drive, got everything installed and working, and popped his old HD into a USB HD Caddy to grab all his data. The problem is that his My Documents folder was protected. I am unable to cascade ownership of the sub-folders and files beneath the root folder. He's got 10,000+ files in there, so individually taking ownership and then setting permissions isn't feasible.
Does anyone know the proper way to do this? I'm concerned that it's some bad sectors affecting how I can set/reset NTFS permissions.
