permissions to access folders

recently when i updated my os from vista to windows 7 ..there were some folders (containing mp3's ) which were on sharing on lan.. now.. all those files that were being shared required me to take ownership of it before i can access it.. i have more than 3000 songs and its not quite practical for me to take owner ship of each and every file....is there any easy method to it ..??
