I have 3 hard drives,
- A 500GB Internal
- A 250GB Internal
- A 500GB External (USB)
On Hard-drive 1, I am running Windows 7. On 2 I am running the Windows 8 Dev Preview, and my external is a backup. I was switching from my Windows 7 to Windows 8 to do some software testing, but missed the bios, so I just held the power button and hard-reset'd the computer, went into W8, did what I needed to do (Even went into my W7 drive and grabbed a file). But when I restarted it went into Start-up Repair and checked for disk errors, it did that for about 4 hours, restarted and just locked up at the stage between the Windows Boot logo and the login screen, (Black screen with a cursor). I left it for another 5-6 hours and nothing happened, so I turned it off and went back into W8, now I cant gain access to my W7 drive, when I try exploring to it, I get a Access Denied warning, when I try to navigate to it using command prompt, I get a Access Denied message.
The hard-drive is visible in Disk Management, and the Properties window is usable (Shows actual stats, unlike the properties in Windows Explorer that shows nothing)
What can I do to unlock my drive? I don't need it to boot, just would like the have my latest files as opposed to the backup.
