This one's a problem that I'm seeing more and more. It's due to the
different security settings on the NTFS file system. There's several ways to
gain the necessary permissions on these files.
1) Use a free NTFS to DOS reader to copy the files to a FAT32 file system.
This will effectively strip the various permissions from the files.
2) Use a Live Linux distro - such as Knoppix - to copy the files elsewhere.
3) Take ownership of the files/folders in question - so that you can
manipulate them as yours. This method works, but it's very quirky at times -
it'll require different tactics on different folders and files.
Here's some articles on how to do it: Thes documents all deal with
permissions, ownership, and access denied errors.
Again, please be aware that the changing of these settings is a bit flakey -
may reuire repeated attempts on the folder and sub-folders to get it to work.
Good luck - this can be frustrating!
