Hi I had a windows system that the hard drive was failing so copied all the files I needed to another disk. Mostly photo's, documents and so on. I then clowned the drive which was windows 7 and updated to Windows 10 and all seemed fine. I then copied the files I saved back over to this Windows 10 box. Every time I go to click on a folder or file it says I don't have permission. I have gone is and changed a few manually and they open after that. Some were word documents but they are a ton of them and photos that say the same. How can I go through and change all at once so I can view these items on this box.  Thanks

Try taking control of the folder the files are in.

Windows handles files in all kinds of wonderful ways that aren't very clear to understand.

 

If you move a file it maintains the file permissions that it had prior to the move.  If you copy the file it will pick up the file permissions of the new location as it is a "new" file.

 

Just to explain what most likely caused your issue.  You originally copied the files to the other drive and they picked up the file permissions of that drive.  Then you moved them back and they kept those file permissions.
