Changing Ownership of failing drive
I pulled my failing hard drive (Windows 7) out of my old computer and installed it in my brand new HP desktop (Windows 7 home 64). I can see all of my data on the old drive but can't access it. I am trying to take ownership including subcontainers and objects and it is taking FOREVER. It's been running for 24 hours and I'm still running through the appdata folders and millions of .tmp files! Every 20 minutes or so it stops and I have to click a "continue" window due to some error.
I've tried the registry hack for take ownership, no luck, I've tried command prompt but I can't get the format right. Any suggestions please??? One thought I had was to use EASEUS Todo Backup and copy the whole drive to a new internal and maybe go through the change ownership process faster. My wits end is rapidly approaching.
