Hello,

Try this 1

You nee to add the permissions to it.

Click on Start --> In search box, type cmd. When the cmd appears in the

search list, right-click on it and select "Run as administrator".

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

Since access denied message appears only for F-Drive, enter the below

commands

takeown /f f: --> Press Enter.

icacls f: /grant username:f --> Press Enter.

Note : In the above icacls command, replace the word

"username" with your account username.

Good Luck
I followed the instructions as mentioned perfectly. Now, the drive says that there is all of the space that is available, so it essentially wiped out my drive. Before, I could actually see that there was about 10 gigs available and there where about 450 gigs that where on the drive. What do I do? And is there a way to get that info back...or did my drive with all of my files, get deleted? Please answer, because if I lost that drive and info, I will be devastated. Anyone out there, please help!

My Toshiba laptop does not want to allow asses to my account.after I insert my password it does not proceed on to the account.
Remove and insert again ur :F drive.
Windows should open a window that says that there r errors, click on scan and fix.
After that u should be ok.

Follow the following steps to solve your problem


1) Right click on the drive. Choose Properties.
2 Click on the Security
3 Click on the button Advanced.
4 Click on the Users in the permission entries section.
5 Click on Change permissions.
6 Now again click on the Users in the permission entries section.
7 Click on the button Edit.
8 Give it full control right, and check the box Only apply these permissions to objects and/or containers within this container only.
9 Click on OK to close on the dialogs.

I suggest you to recover your files first then do any thing on this drive.There are many free data recovery software available in the market.
Worked great
