My laptop died on me after along battle to keep it alive, it was an XP OS. I have taken the Hard Drive out and installed it it a caddy which I have hooked to a new laptop. The new laptop is running Windows 7 which I have no experience of and whilst it recognises the drive I can't access the files on it due to permissions. I understand that I need to change the file permissions as they are locked out by the user priviledges from the old XP account but I have no idea how to do this and, more importantly, if it's actually true!! HELP!
