  1. Hey Miguel,
    A Q for you is that
    After installing windows 7 over XP, Images and videos asking for some kind of permission to open it. There were some images on desktop which I copied earlier to the drive D and after that I installed OS 7, hope you reply soon…
    And thanks for the video…πŸ€™πŸΌ

  2. I tried 2nd way and it worked!!!! I found the menu "take ownership" at the 3rd row after I right-clicked the folder. I clicked it and the program ran as long as how big your folder was. Then voila! I could delete those darn bastard folders after putting up with 'no permission' for years. Thank you so much, you are a trooper!
