This is a common issue when accessing an old drive formatted with NTFS from a new install of windows .

you need to go to the root of the drive (partition), take ownership of the drive, and then set suitable permissions from the new system.

This is especially true since Vista since the dual token system of UAC can exacerbate the issue, but the problem has been present since NT days, it is due to the fact that although the old and new user name may be the same the SID is actually different
