Can't delete or copy files on old windows drives

I am running Zorin only. I used to have Windows 10. I have 3 Nvme SSD drives in my computer. Zorin is is on one drive and the other two contain Windows files that I saved from my old installation. I want to delete a lot of the files and save some on a flash drive for use on another Windows computer. Zorin will not let me delete, copy or move the old NTFS files. I believe Zorin marked the drives and files as read only. Is there a way to do this without getting to far into the weeds.
Thank You

For the folders/drives of interest: Right-click -> properties -> left-click permissions tab. Check everything is set to read and write.

Some files can not be deleted as Zorin take ownership( famous you not the owner). Boot from live usb and see if you can get raid of them.
