So long story short, my old laptop died, it was going to cost a bunch to fix, made no sense considering how old it was so I just bought a new one. The techs were able to recover my old information (thank goodness since I kept procrastinating buying a backup system - lesson learned) and gave me an external hard drive. Well now I can't seem to transfer files from the hard drive to my new computer. It says access denied...I am guessing this is because my login was password protected. DH's login wasn't and his stuff transferred just fine. So I figured out how to transfer the access, however it requires me to go through this on every single file...well there are 100s of pictures to go through. Surely there is an easier way to do this! Anyone know how or if this makes any sense to anyone? I called Microcenter (who were my techs) and they won't explain it over the phone since it is a service they provide...um, come on, I'm sure it would take two seconds to explain and I can't really run down to the store that easily these days.
So if someone knows what I am trying to do, please help! Thanks!
