I've been backing up my iMac with Time Machine to an external hard drive. To make a backup of that backup, I want to copy the backup folders on external HD to to my MacBook. But when I've done it in the past and tried to open old files, they have a lock on them, or permissions, that prevented me from accessing the file.

My question is is there a setting I need to look at so in two years, for example, I can access these backup files on my MacBook and open them no problem? Thanks.
