HP laptop died - power problem - ordered IDE to USB2.0 cable - plugged in the harddrive to cable and usb to new WIN7 laptop to retrieve files. Drive and directories are seen, but when I drill down to the documents folder - receive a nasty permissions message. I have tried to take ownership of the files but it will not. Any ideas to save my data? I have a partial backup of the files on another drive, but that is sitting in a computer without memory right now - robbed it for my sons to work faster and he lives in another city. Any help will be appreciated.
