"Top level folder" would you call that?

I have the same issue. I cannot access music or picture files. I have taken ownership and permissioned myself on the old Hdd and several sub folders down but when i get to my music and my pictures permissioning creates an access denied error for the files below. If I hold down c for continue, the error cycles through all contents and takes me back to security tab.

At this stage, if I select the user I am trying to permission it looks like I have full control but of course I don't. Its obvious since i see only icons in the thumbnails when I open the my pictures folder. And if I go back to security then remove the user the error cycle starts again when I try to repermission.

There is some config in these folders which simply wont let me permission access to the files. Most peculiar because I seem to have ownership on the folder and can permission the files individually. Can anyone help
