The same problem happened to me as well. Try this

1.In Windows Explorer, click Tools, then click Folder Options.
2.On the View tab, in the Advanced Settings area, click to clear the Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended) check box.

then right click on folder and ur folders properties, go to security tab.
then click [add] then click [advanced] then click [Find Now] then a list will come out, then find ur username or Administrator. add it.
then you'll go backto the previous page, then check [full control].
then apply, then ok.
now this shud fix ur problem

hari om.
thanks to "HAMDAN".
I mapped my local drive on network and then on my computer also unknowingly.After Knowing the mistake I disconnected my local drives from mine.Then started the problem.I was able to see the drives on network and my pc but I failed to access them.I tried to access them from network and I was able to access one of them.Then I searched and found that I may be due to virus as I just un-installed norton due to compatibility reasons from windows 7 rc1.But all the symptoms were not the same as described on sites. So I searched and arrived here.I thought its a problem related to network.But it wasn't.Also I just changed some local policies and created new password for account with which I mapped the drives.So I am not aware what caused the problem.But i'd like to know because its not good to get trapped and become free ignorantly for good learner.

thanks hamdan for your post, that gave me some insight on what could be the problem, the keyword in your post was "sharing", I remember I shared it once but removed it later then I can no longer access it.

what really solved my problem after seeing your post was to copy exactly the properties of the other folder I can access and set the same on the problematic drive/folder.

first I go to folder Properties --> Security tab --> noted and copied on paper 'Group or user names' and the associated 'Permissions' for each.

Then clicked on the Advance button, noted the 'Permission entries' (remove or add accordingly to match the entries in the folder that you can access),

click on the Owner tab and set similar to the Owner entries in the folder you can access.

click Apply as appropriate then the OK button.

That solved my miseries, hope it will help you too.
