changing user permissions?

Posted: 02-17-2008, 01:13 PM
i am copying someone elses data from a usb drive, but when i try to add
myself in permissions i get a great many pop ups about error: cannot find
file. But I know all these files are there because i can see them.

I know I must be going about this the wrong way. Can someone please advise
me how I can give myself full rights and ownership without all these errors
popping up.

thanks

Am I getting you right - are the "Permission" Tab in properties on the
USB-drive.
When I'm asking, thats because it would'n be there using a USB key .
But if its there, you sholdn't give it permissions - not yet anyway.
First you take over the ownership to the drive - and then you give it
permissions.
