    Sorry, but I have forgot the exact menu details, but I can still give u a template.

    Right click on the folder, and go to properties, there u will need to find some option which givesoptions to configure read/write operations. You would see that it says the folder is orphan and if u wish u can take the ownership of that folder. so take the ownership. This option wud be available only on the folders that are giving the "Accessed Denied" message.

    First make sure that the drive ur working with is a NTFS one. Since ur question states that I take it for granted that it is NTFS.

    Secondly the account you are using is a local user account thats why u dont have the permissions to access some folders coz the users might not be in the folders access list.

    What you can do is log on as the administator and add ur user account to the administrators group. U will b able to open all the folders :)
