Windows 7: Windows 7 cant set security properties on files from an old XP HDD

Windows 7 cant set security properties on files from an old XP HDD

Heres the background.

1. XP Pro pc dies (Yayyyyy!!!!!!)
2. Removed HDD to export data to a HDD on a Win7-32bit (HDD is a hitachi deskstar HDT722516DLA380)
3.Connected HDD to the laptop via a USB kit i bought
4.Everything seems fine
5.Attempt to move files -Access Denied-

Heres my problem everytime i try to move anything it says its denied i give it admin but it doesnt copy it anyway. I go to folder properties and set the security to allow "Everyone" Full control but it still wont work it says access is denied and i cant apply it. I can go into an individual file and set security settings there and be able to retrieve it however it is inefficient to try to do this to the next 3000 or so photos/files. Can anyone reccomend me what i should do? or perhaps theres a program that can help me out?

Any help is appreciated or a link to a similar post with the same problem would be great. Sorry i didnt know where to put this post (again lmao)

Have you tried taking ownership of the entire drive?
