My system hard drive on an XP computer kind of failed (random corrupt sectors). So i got a new harddrive and am trying to recover the files. The filesystem is NTFS.
The system i'm trying to use when recovering the files is Windows 7. I'm obviously an admin on this box.
The last data i'm trying to recover is stuff in the Documents and Settings folder.
I'm using a SATA to a USB cable thingy so that I just plug it in as an External Hard Drive.
In Windows Explorer when i try to copy the data, I keep getting prompted with Security warnings and error messages. It keeps telling me i have to change the owner permissions of the folder and all it's contents. If i tell it to change all the files and folder permissions it takes a really long time because it has to recurse through all the folder contents to change the permissions.
Is there a way for me to ignore the file permissions when doing this?
