Windows 7: Ide folder created on xp - ownership issue on 7

Ide folder created on xp - ownership issue on 7


- I have a IDE Hitachi HD, from my old computer that use to run with XP 32.

- Now i have a Windows 7 64 on a Toshiba.

- I'm trying to get the folders from the IDE disk, and i already have changed the ownership authorization,

- But it stills prompting the message that i need Administrator authorization to delete and copy some stuff (most of it); even after i've re-connect it.

There's any alternative method?


(Note: the printscreen its in Portuguese, but says access denied, you need administrator authorization to delete this file)
