Security Issues after upgrading to Vista
I have 2 Hard Drives connected to my PC. Everything was working fine with
Windows XP Pro.
Upon upgrading to Vista Ult. I had formatted my first drive. The second
drive I didn't touch since I have transferred all my backup files(docs,
images, mp3, etc). During Windows XP Pro, I had setup permissions that ONLY
myself would have access to the drive. So the only username in the security
permissions was my name.

After upgrading to Vista Ult., I did the following:
1. On the Security tab of 2nd drive's Properties, I clicked on
Advanced>Owner Tab>Chose myself as the Owner>Checked the box for Replace
owner on subcontainers and objects and clicked OK.
2. After it did its job of assigning permissions, I added myself on the
Security Tab of the Properties window as having full access.

Now every time I have to browse the folders of the 2nd drive or I have to
open a file, a permissions window pops up stating that I don't have access
to open or look at the files: Access Denied.
At each and every file or folder I have to right click and add myself as a
User with full permissions to view or open the file or folder.
I was at an understanding that when I take ownership of the folder and I
check to Replace Owner I was given access to everything inside that drive
and all its folders and files, JUST like in XP Pro.

What process needs to be done so I don't have to add myself inside Security
Tab: Group or user names section for each and every file or folder?
Please help out.
Thanks.
Hope this was not confusing.

Re: Security Issues after upgrading to Vista
You didn't recursively give yourself permission on the drive like you
did with the ownership.

Ownership does not entitle you to have access to anything but security
permissions. You still have to give yourself permission to the file
after taking ownership of it.
