Windows 10: Moved ext data drive (XP machine) to new computer (win 10) Owner Issue
Moved ext data drive (XP machine) to new computer (win 10) Owner Issue
Hello from a new member and new win 10 user.
I had an XP machine that died and replaced it with a new Win 10 pro machine.
I moved the old external data drive to my new computer and now have had lots of "you're not the owner" and "contact the administrator or owner" issues. I often get "you require permission from DESKTOP XXXXXXX" messages.
The big issue is that I can't even open my password saver program with all my passwords.
I have tried for weeks to search the web for a simple solution. No Joy.
We have tried the "Properties/security/ blah blah blah " fixes with no success.
Also tried applications such as "Take Ownership."
It seems lots of folks have similar problems, but I can't find the magic bullet.
I'm very sorry to ask the same old question, but we're at our wits end here.
I'm obviously not a network administrator or win 10 expert, but I can read and follow instructions so please help this old farmer.
As someone once said: "Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, You're my only hope."
Thanks in advance folks,

Can someone say if this can be moved and then activated? Thanks, undine.

I searched. I know that with XP/7/8/8.1 (and Server OS'es) changing substantial hardware would trigger a reactivation message however this was a legit (free) upgrade from 8.1 Pro x64 to 10 Pro x64. I had a hardware issue with the computer the OS was...
