    Question Take Control of Hard Drives

    Hey Guys I've come across a bit of a problem

    I bought my SSD last week (Thanks for your suggestions) and I installed it over the weekend.

    Now I had 3 drives in my computer, a 3TB, 2TB and a 1TB. Since I did a fresh install of my operating system on the SSD, I then put my drives back in, and now I every time I want to do something on any of those drives, it keeps telling me "Access Denied" and that I need administrative rights, and all the files are read only.

    I've taken ownerships of the folders, and removed the ghost accounts from my last OS install, but every folder still has a read only attribute and I can't seem to reset it.

    Does anyone know what I need to do to take control again? It's getting annoying having to have Admin Rights (which I do have) to do everything on the drives as they are used for my client files etc.

    Ok just found out the Check-box's are square so that's fine, but I'm still having the error come up telling me I need system admin rights. I've tried the following http://www.sevenforums.com/system-se...t-disable.html

    No worries, glad we could be of service.

    I find when you have to learn something like this yourself it sticks better anyway...
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.
