Since the files on that drive were created by a different user, you don't
own them.
To take control of them, you need to take ownership & change permissions.

Assuming the files are on Drive D, and that you have an administrator
Open a CMD prompt, by clicking on Start - All Programs - Accessories
right-click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator"

takeown /f D:\ /r /d y
icacls D:\ /grant administrators:F /t
