Unable to take ownership of directories in Vista
Posted on 2007-04-09
I recently purchased a new system with Vista Ultimate pre-installed, so I thought I give vista a shot. My old PC was running XP Pro and using NTFS-all of my data was located on a secondary hard drive. I've connected the second drive to my Vista PC and I can see files and folders on the secondary drive, however, I am unable to move, copy or view any of the documents-I constantly receive access denied errors. I can however, move, copy and view files from the boot drive to the second drive without issue.
My login account is part of domain admins, and I have full admin. privileges to the local system. I'm unable to take ownership of any files or directories on the secondary drive.
Is there a “Vista” way of taking ownership of my older XP files?
