Solved Macrium program says I need Admin permision to copy pictures

Specs: Win 7/64 Home, 8gig
For a long time now I have been saving (to My Pictures) good photographic images saved from all sorts of sites. I regularly use Macrium to back up the system.

I have been having trouble with my Win 7 install so I formatted the disk and started again. I never worried about backing up first because the backup I had was only two days old. When I accessed the Macrium backup to copy my pictures back to the working system I was told that I needed the Administrators permission to do so How do I go about doing that? I must admit that I have never struck this situation before and I'm in the habit of copying information from my backups as I need it.

Any and all help will be appreciated.

Regards

Can you change the permissions of the folder(s)?

Right click the folder and select properties.

Click on the security tab

Click Advanced button

Click on the Owner tab. Does it show your profile as the owner? If not click edit and change it to your profile.

See if you can perform the task.

Also in this screen you can try clicking on the effective permissions tab and giving full control to you if the first step doesn't work.

Right-click the Macrium Reflect program shortcut and choose "Run as administrator" from the context-menu.

Thank you Phil I'll give that a shot in the morning (It's 11.15 pm right now) and I'll get back.

Actually I don't want to restore the whole backup I just want to extract the pictures

Thanks for the link Phil but that tutorial is only for File and Folder backups and not image backups. I tried "Copy and Paste" but I got the same warning so I'm back where I started. But thanks for the suggestion.

Regards

Thanks btk, sorry for the late reply butI have had an eye operation in the meantime and I'm fed up trying to change the ownership so I restored the backup to a spare disk and copied them from therel.

Cheers and thanks again.
