Hard drive

By afun55 ·
My laptop crashed so we took out the hard drive and hooked it up to a caddy. I'm connecting it to Windows Vista. I can view my files but once it comes to pics I can't see the individual pcs. It would say I don't have permission to view the file. I figured out how to change the permission on the specific pic that I want to view but I have only been able to do it individually. I changed the permission on the file that holds all the pics but then it won't change the permission setting on each pic. I have hundreds of pics that I can't see and I need to know what other way I can change the permission on them without having to go through each individual file!

Sure you can.

There should be a button in the advanced settings of the security tab that says something like "Replace permission entries on child objects..." Check that and it will change all the security on all files/folders under the folder you make the change in.
