I recently upgraded to a new hard drive ( 750 GB from a 160) performed by an authorized apple reseller.

They copied my hard drive contents.

no problem.

but, i found a few files missing in my iPhoto ( they were not properly referenced and i suspect they were deleted inadvertently in the past) so I wanted to get them off of Time machine.  BUT, when I attach the external hard drive Time Machine, worked fine, but when I went to access the proper folder, I was given an error that I did not have proper authorization to access the drive!!!  What's with that?!?!

macbook pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
