I just bought new HP Pavillion a6547c desktop. My old computer wouldn't power up. Have hard drive in the HP tower.
Computer recognizes it - files are there -- but I can't access them.
Have lowered security and tried to change ownership - - but get "unable to display current owner" of the old drive.
I am the owner of the old drive.
Anyone know how to fix this??

Please download and install the patch from the following web link.
Please unzip the TakeOwnership.zip file to the desktop and then double click on the InstallTakeOwnership.reg file to install it. Then Navigate to the folder which you are trying to access, right click on the folder and click Take Ownership.
Now try accessing the folder. You should be able to access the folder and view your files.
