HDD from an old Win XP laptop is usb-connected to a Win7 laptop. I have changed the permission as well as the ownership of the drive and its sub folders, YET I can't access the content of the files and I get the same msg "can't open this photo because you do not have permission to access the file location"!

I have 150GB data on it which I need to access. How do I access the data?

How did you take ownership of the folder exactly? Can you post a screenshot of the ownership of the folder? – Ramhound Aug 28 '13 at 14:18
I am not sure how to get a screeshot but this is the procedure: – Salman Autefi Aug 28 '13 at 14:28
right click the drive-->properties--> security-->advanced-->owner-->edit – Salman Autefi Aug 28 '13 at 14:30
Ctrl + Print Screen will take a picture of the active window. You can figure out the rest. – Ramhound Aug 28 '13 at 14:37
Thank you Ramhound for trying to help. I got the screenshot but I am apparently not allowed to post an img here as I have not enough reputation!!! – Salman Autefi Aug 28 '13 at 14:52
