Try Take Ownership Shortcut on the folders or drive.

Can you plug in the drive internally?

You can always Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or use Paragon Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0 Free CD to another HD which require no permissions.

Are you able to access the files now?

The lock only means the file is not shared.

Taking ownership only changes the "owner" of the file or folder to be your user account. It does not change the permission level of the file.

After you have taking ownership of the item, you may still need to Allow your user account Full Control of the item before you will have full permission to access it, to be able to modify, or delete it.

Try this link again:

As I stated above, the lock only means its not shared.

Why would an owner of the folder not have permission?
