How do I fix an "access denied" to documents and settings error?

Just purchased a new drive, and I am trying to recover data from the old one.

Use data recovery software from internet, that you can get just by searching in google. To avoid access denied you have to stop it in TASK manager.

The permissions settings are not set to allow you to access them. You need to log in as someone with permissions, or change the permissions.

In order to resolve the "Access denied" problem you must be signed in you computer as an Administrator. To resolve the problem, sign out from the account and enter an administrator account, If your account is in fact an administrator one the problem should be resolved.

You will be shown this message especially when you click on transparent icons which look like original folders. They are not original folders. They are juctions which behave like short cuts. They only redirect and do not open by themselves.
