I thought my laptop died the other day with all of my user profiles and data. I was finally able to get it working again. After that the first thing I wanted to do was to back it up. I made a full system image. I wanted to test it on a different laptop but it wouldnt work because the newer laptop was running windows 10 and my image was from windows 7. I attempted to do a restore and install windows 7 from a cd but it just would no work. All I really need is all of my user profiles and their data, mainly desktop folders. I was manually taking what I needed by navigating the C drive and specific user folders but I have way too many and it will take too long. I tried to copy and paste all of them but it will not allow me unless I first click each individual folder to request the required permissions. How can i copy and paste all of them to a new drive without the need for the special permissions? Thanks
