Hi all

I am in serious trouble. i am not able to access my i: (which is a logical drive). whenever/ wherever i click on the icon it says i:\ not accessable. Access Denied. For this drive the sharing and security tab in the properties window is missing. so i cant view the permissions also. Please help me to gain access to my i: drive.

As per my knowledge it must be somthing to do with the permissions.

Please find a solution, it would be very nice of you people.

Kind Regards
Sandy

ok , please give your system spec(os, hardware especially HDs) and after what did it begin happen?

I am presently using Windows Xp Pro with SP2. i have one hard disk with 3 partitions. i really dont know how did it happen.

I have a clue on this its basically because of some permissions. which is very unusal (like S1-5XXX...). which has been set. which will remove the security, sharing and quota tabs from the properties of that drive.

but i dont know how to make it normal. moreover my clue might not be true, as i have no idea how it happened.

whta file system do you have, if file system is NTFS, the best way to destroy NTFS perms is to convert drive to FAT32. or make this:
ry this. Use the file I have attached, save it to your computer and extract it to your d:\

Go to a command prompt and type

takeown D:\(insert name of folder)

This "should" give your current user rights to the folder. Your best doing this with your administrator account.

Hope this works.

hi excuse me for such a late answer. don't worry about this .exe, it won't do anything with your hd, it only change permissions in order you can have access to you hd.

Hello and very thankx
This takeown file has worked for me and it onlocks the restrictions on my drives.

But to makes it work I have to run this file for evry folder and then every file in it . It is lot of work.
Could you please tell me any other file that will just unlock every file in the folders as well.

Thanks

Hey ksadny46,
I am not familiar with the takeown program provided to you but if you gain access to the root directory try this.

1. Right click on I drive and select Properties
2. Click on the Security tab
3. Click Advanced
4. Within the advanced window select your administrator account and choose to apply onto “This folder, subfolders, and files” click ok
5. Then check the box at the bottom of this window “Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here……”

Hope that helps,
AJZ

Hey Hanosh,
Sounds like you need to take ownership of that drive the following steps will take care of it for you.

  • Right click on I drive and select Properties
  • Click on the Security tab
  • Click Advanced
  • Click the Owner tab and your account
  • Check the box that says “Replace owner on Sub….”
  • Ok and you should be good to go

turn off simple filesharing. i accidently left it on and finally realized that was it. and change your security settings as needed.

I can access my local drive, even I can't find the security tab but security tab is there in other drive after I right on the properties.(other dive)

First i tell you how to get sharing & security wizard.
1.open my computer > tools from menubar > in that click Folder option.
2. then goto view panel.
3. go last and find "Use sharing wizard" enable it.
4. finish > check now.........

another is first you check your drive is healthy or not if it is corrupt then not access.
so only way is format or if recover with "chkdsk /f" than possible to access.

for check drive status goto > mycomputer> properties > manage > disk management..
check drive.

may you solve it !!
