Hi everyone, I've a disk in a laptop (XP NTFS with 3 partitions) that is failing to boot so I've placed it in a caddy and attempted to access it on my Windows 7 PC.
When it's connected it prompts me to initialise device first (which I suspected it would do).
I've managed to access partitions to some degree using a diag mount utility http://hddguru.com/software/2007.05....ind-and-Mount/
but where the data is stored it won't let me change the permissions, reporting the device is write protected when I attempt to re-assign full permission or ownership.
Having had a good look around for some software to access it and allow permission/ownership changing, I've not got that far and don't want to end up installing this and that.
Has anyone some suggestions how to access or can anyone recommend a utility so I can change the permissions/owner to get the data off?
