If you mean Windows, then look for Taking Ownership & your OS in Google.
For example, if you're using Windows XP, the Google search will be Taking Ownership XP and the first link in the Google search will give you this from Microsoft;

I hope that helps.
Trying to get pictures off a hard drive through an HDD docking station. Finally found the files but cannot view them because I don't have permission. I've tried messing with the permissons in the security settings but I'm just not getting anywhere. I was hoping someone could tell me what I'm doing wrong.
don't need anything off the drive but the pics for my wife. Thanks
