Help with files, backup from W7 and restored W8.1

I was running W7Pro, and was offered a full version of W8.1P. So I used W7Pro, backup all my data under my user name, I am the admin for W7Pro. After getting everything backup up to a jump drive. I did a complete full install and partition of the old Win7 drive. Installed W8.1 Pro. After getting all the updates downloaded, and drive updated and started the restore to W8.1 from my jump drive, created under W7P. Started the restore, to Win8.1P. Everything seem to restore ok. Since I'm the admin for win8.1, also. Currently I can not open any of the restore files. I get an can not open, access denied! Now all my files are restored, and I cannot used or open them. After a while, I created another partition re-installed W7P, and tried to restore, which they did. But again I can not access of any files from the restored jump drive. Slowly, i've been just recreating some of the files. But now days, I need all those W7 files. Even some files under the old W7P, have become locked too! So I need some guidance to fix my files. I even installed Linux to see if I could do a chmod on each file. but nope. Still locked Help Perry, Chattanooga
