Running with administrator user:

Take ownership of folder and subfolders: right button, security, advanced, owner tab, select user and take ownership propagating to subfolders.
Change permissions to grant access: right butto, security, edit, add user and grant all permissions.

If harddrive is cipher this procedure is invalid.

You need to take ownership of the files...  What version of Windows 7 are you running on the computer you are connecting this drive to?
