Just transferred my data HDD from my old PC to this newly built PC, I could read, delete fhose files but could not write files to its folders. When I try to write to it, the following messaage appears:

"You do not have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission."

What's this about?

You need to take ownership of the files.

I am assuming you now use Win 7 as you did not say.

It is Win 7 indeed. sorry for not indicating it earlier.

BTW, I have about 20 folders in this HDD, do I have to perform the take ownership procedures one by one or there's another way to do it a lot?

Just take ownership of the whole hdd, then all folders should open
