Exclamation URGENT! Pulling data off old IDE hard drives

I've been trying to grab some data off some IDE drives that I have but I'm having some trouble. What I did was go into my IDE drive, Select all, Copy, and pasted into a folder in my external hard drive. Only 1 GB out of my 30 GB worth of stuff is copied. Only 3 root folders of the drive copy, out of the 10 folders that are in the drive. And even then, the 3 folders that did copy, the content inside is barely copied.

When I'm trying to even look at my data, it gives me a message. Something along the lines of "You don't have permission to access these files". I've tried going to the properties of my drive and giving myself full control of the drive. Doesn't work. It seems like this method works when I do individual folders though. I don't want to spend an hour giving myself Full Control for every single folder.

I'm thinking maybe these problems are linked?
