access denied to old hard drive pdfs

By david_boaden ·

I've recently had to to a clean install of windows xp pro onto a new hard drive. The new drive is set as the master and I've now connected the old drive again in order to copy various documents across.

I've changed the 'owner' in the security settings and can now copy the documents across - with the exception of pdfs! When I try to copy any .pdf file, or simply open it, it returns "Access Denied".

Can anyone help with gaining access please?
Cheers in advance.
