unable to view files w/SATA/ USB adapter

So I am trying to read from my current laptop my old laptop hard drive thru a Sata HDMI adaptor. Seems like a bunch of missing hidden or inaccessible files. I read that i need to change the bios and allow to read the files however i was able to open a menu but did not locate or view the command for allowing to read files.
Any help here thx

I think I remember a similar problem. It came down to file permissions.
You could download and run DMDE. Then click on NTSF volume in the partition tab.
See if you can expand the tree (root) to see the files.
