We backed up my wifes old hard drive to the 1TB passport ultra. We now have tried to access this on the new home PC i.e simple word documents. I can see them and their physical size etc though when I go to open them it tells me I dont have the permission.
I have tried running the security app for WD security which asks me to format and assign a password . When I go into the file properties right click I can see they have been encrypted. in Windows 10 the file names show in green. the unencrypted ones are in black.
I have tried changing the owner permission - I could have done this wrong.
The PC they were backed up from are Win 7 the new laptop is Win 10.
Any thought or ideas on this would be most greatful. Luckily there are only a few docs we dont have backed up else where also.
