Exclamation Backup and Mounting Now Ownership Issue

hey guys ive had this issue come up twice and its bugging me trying to figure out the best way to over come it, so here it goes,
'
i did a back up for a client using acronis, then i reinstalled to a 64 bit version of windows 7 and mounted his old image so he could see his docs,pics and so forth but before i can access these docuemnts i get a notice saying i dont have ownership. of the files , (due to windows security) so i goto the securiety tab and add the current user to the owners and take ownership , is there any way to do this on a mass scale so i dont have to do it for the 40-100 folders he has?

In Windows 7, typically, I was under the impression that it would automatically prompt the user to take ownership of the files when trying to access the parent folder of them after having copied them to the local disk (at least, that's what it does for me each time I manually transfer data). Is this not happening?

Try TakeOwn

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...8WS.10%29.aspx

Quote:
Enables an administrator to recover access to a file that previously was denied, by making the administrator the owner of the file

Syntax:
takeown [/s <Computer> [/u [<Domain>\]<User name> [/p [<Password>]]]] /f <File name> [/a] [/r [/d {Y|N}]
Works when pointed to a directory, too.

Well, the command is pretty straightforward, especially if you're just looking to take ownership of a folder and its subdirectories.

If it's still a bit much, try here: http://www.rizone3.com/archives/1271

I must be missing something (genuinely rather than rhetorically!) because there must be a reason why you can't just use the usual inheritance functions to do this. I do seem to remember a problem with this in W7 mentioned before.

BTW is this only happening in the mounted image? Does it make any difference if you run the app doing the mounting as admin? Or can you not just restore the files and then do it?

I'm not 100% sure on Windows 7 but with previous OS' isn't there normally an option to apply the action to subfolders as well?
