So I just purchased a new computer with Windows 8. I had backed up my system previously and the tech was also able to pull some newer info off before the laptop hard drive crashed. I connected the hard drive and transferred over particularly my songs to import into iTunes. The files transferred properly, however, when I import the file or folder into itunes, there is nothing to it. If I choose to access a song or photo, it tells me that I do not have permission to access the file. I have found that if I go through the individual file and grant access, then import into itunes, it will add to my library and play. Obviously, with over 3,000 songs and over 30,000 files to retrieve, I cannot do this for every file.
How do you grant permission to the folder – subfolder – files?
Also, when I am choosing the files on my hard drive, so have a strikethrough script indicating they have been deleted? I can still transfer, grant permission and access the files though.
Help would be greatly appreciated. If I lost all this data, I would be devastated - songs and pictures all lost.
Thanks everyone and anyone!
