I have an external hard drive that I can not access. I get the following message when I try.


Not accessable

Access is denied.


I know it has to do with permissions. I had the google redirecting virus which while I was trying to fix I restored the computer back to default. Which did not fix the problem. I came here and found my answers to fix that problem.


Then after windows was reloaded I can no longer get in. I have Windows 7. I tried a bunch of different settings for the permissions and it all looks OK.

If I add "Everyone" I can then get into the hard drive but I can't access any of the files.


So At this point I'm not sure what to do.
