My daughters hard drive was failing, so I used SystemRescueCD to pull everything from the drive to another one.  The problem I am having is getting permission to access her user folder on the drive.  It denies me access and directs me to the security tab to get permission, but when I try this, it starts giving me errors from corrupted files in that folder, and won't give me permission. 

I also tried using this program:http://lallouslab.net/2013/08/26/resetting-ntfs-files-permission-in-windows-graphical-utility/

but it still asks for permission.  Is there a way around this to access the files to see if I can pull off any uncorrupted ones?

Try taking ownership of the files/folders.

Here's a guide for W8 (should be similar to W10):  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/take-ownership-windows-8

Good luck!

I did just that where i mentioned going to the security tab, but with some of the files being corrupt it would just pop up errors about it over and over and not give me access. However, following your link led me to the File Repair program, and using that to browse to the user folder from there somehow got me around setting up the permission for that folder, and I am able to drag the files I need from there to the desktop.  Thanks for the help!
