File and Folder Permissions Windows Vista

I used the backup hard drive on the disk to store all my documents. I would like to move all of the documents off that box and drive and onto my 7 box.
The problem I am having is with file permission. I would like that issue resolved before moving. I have to go into each folder and change each permission on each file. Too tedious and time consuming. Is there a way to do that globally?
Here is what I have so far.
1. I go to:
Documents and Settings>My Name>My Documents
2. I get:
You don’t currently have permission to access this folder. Click continue.
3. I do and get:
You have been denied permission to access this folder. To gain access to this folder, you will need to use the Security tab.
4. I click and get:
You do not have permission to view or edit this objects permission settings.
I get the same thing whether I am under my account which is an Administrator account or login as an Administrator.
