OS: Window 7 Home Edition
I tried restricting a secondary drive on my home computer for a particular user. I set up a new user account and then RC on the D: drive > properties > security tab. There was an Administrator account and a User account. I selected the Users account and hit Edit, then selected Deny checkbox for 'Full control'
When I log in now as Administrator, I also get Access Denied. When I RC on the D: drive and go to Properties there is no security tab.
Here is what I tried so far:
- Set up a Symbolic Link on the C: drive pointing to the D: drive. But I still get Access Denied.
- I tried to take ownership as Admin using CMD line: > takeown /F D:\ /R but again Access Denied
- Set up another Administrator account, logged into it but it also gets Access Denied.
- I searched on the forums but all the answers given are about resetting the permissions via the security tab.
Any ideas on how to get access to the D: drive again?
