How to unlock a locked file in my WD mybook?

I have back up files from different macs on my My book external drive. I have a couple files from a mac book pro on it and these files have a red circle with a white minus sign. So when I click on this file it warns that I do not have permission to open it. How do I change that???

Hello,

See if the following link helps

No, did not help. That link deals with folders on your computer. I need to
get permission to open a back up folder on my WD my book hard drive
