While my WD Portable External Hard Drive was connected to my work computer, I changed the permissions on a particular folder so that only I had access to it. (I was lending it to someone else but didn't want then to have access to this particular folder).

2 hours later I was told my services were no longer required, pack up all my things and leave. Unfortunately, I forgot to reset the permissions before I left, and now when I try to access the folder on my home PC, I get 'Access Denied'.

I realise it was stupid to mess about with the permissions (especially when I don't know that much about them), but is there anyway to take ownership of this folder to gain access to the contents?

Both work and home PC are XP. Work is 64 bit. Home is 32 bit. Permissions were set up on work PCs, but not on home.
And no, there's no chance of me gaining access to my work PC again.
