Permissions - Access denied error

I moved a folder containing sub-folders and files to an external drive.  Everything went well and I have been working within the folder and various sub-folders/files... creating zip archives, saving, etc.etc.  

I decided to copy this same folder to my internal C:\.  But now I cannot save to nor work within the folder... get an access denied error.

I think if I change the permissions for the folder maybe I will once again be able to work in it.  For the life of me I cannot get the changes to take effect or rather remain permanent once applied.  It's obvious that I must be doing something or not doing something.

Any help would be great? ... and I don't mean giving me a ton of complicated reading about permissions..

Computer Specs:
Dell XPS8300; Win7 Pro [64Bit]; Intel i7-2600 [3.4Ghz]; 12Gb RAM; AMD/ATI Radeon HD6770; 1.5Tb HDD [7200Rpm]; Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme; Dell IN1920 18.5' HD Widescreen Monitor

I figure you'll need more information, but for now, this should be ok.

Change ownership and add permissions to the direcory (first take ownership, then close all dialogs and then open security again.
Example of setting permission ownership.
