I placed the hard drive from a defunct XP computer and enclosure into my new\nenclosure and attached it to my new Vista computer. Some of the files on the\nXP drive were set as hidden. With Vista I am unable to see or edit those\nfiles unless I reset the permissions individually to make myself the owner\n(Properties -> Security -> Add...). But I have hundreds of files that need\nsuch changing and need to find a way to reset the permissions for them as a\ngroup.\n\nI've tried to set permissions for their folder but I got a warning that I\nhave to change their inheritance, but the inheritance checkbox is grayed\nout. Any assistance on this issue appreciated. Thanks.
