Hello,

May be the permissions got changed.

Try this 1.

1) Click on Start --> In Search box, type control folders --> Press "Enter".

"Folder Options" window will be opened. Click on "View" tab --> Scroll down

and uncheck the check box "Use simple file sharing" --> Click on OK.

2) Now right-click on your G drive --> Properties --> Click on "Security" tab -->

Click on "Add" --> Enter you user account name --> Click on "Check Names" -->

Click on OK --> Make sure your user account name is selected in "Group or user

names:" section --> Check the check box "Full Control" --> Click on OK.

Note : Enter your user account name that you are using to log into the windows.

Good Luck.
