We had to reinstall operating system (windows server 2008 R2) in a new drive to a server because the hard disk has some bad sectors.

We connect the old disk in the server in order to extract the information and we tried to take ownership of it but in some files we got  an error thay says that changing permissions is not possible...any ideas?

Hi best praktice is to use life linux operation system. It dont konw and also ignore windows permisions. So simply coppy data from one disk to another but only problm is that you can coppy data only to FAT32 (write limit of standart linux) so maybe sue external HDD but after you copy data out they loos old premisions and you wil dont have any problem :)

second solution is that you can boot to save mode weher it is not working with datas you must login as local administrator of server not domain. An try it again.

OK so the same solution. Becouse you have workgroup admin password is the local admin of server but dont use your account (if you have your name account) use "Administrator" account.
