Win 7  permissions on slaved HD...

I have a Win 7 box that I attach various client hard drives to perform certain tasks...
Maybe pull data, make an image....etc...

 When I slave a HD....the system always says "you do not have permission etc".....then you can
click and it will go thru applying permissions to all subsequent folders....

Depend on the number of files and folders...this may take 20 minutes....or it may take hours...

Is there any way to set my "host" computer to accept these slaved HD's and immediatly
drill down into the various folders like we used to do on XP systems...???

Hope this makes sense...

And thanks in advance....
Steve

The short answer is no. You have to take permissions of the files just like you were doing. One of the techs that I work with has setup a linux machine so he can do exactly what you are asking. The permissions are NTFS permissions that is why you have issues accessing them.

Build a cheap linux box and you can get right into any of the files with no issues.
