Hi there, Ive looked all through these forum and other sites including the windows official support and cant find anything to help with my problem. I recently updated my OS from Windows XP to Windows 7. I have two HDD one for my OS install and one for my documents etc. I wiped clean for a fresh install the OS drive which removed XP and now contains Win7. The documents drive however wont open. I keep receiving the same message which is... F:\ is not accessible. Access is denied. I have tried numerous tutorials and browsed many forums where people have had the problem. The techniques ive tried include changing permissions from the properties, trying to change permission through cmd and all the rest. Another piece of information is that when i look at the properties of the drive it shows that its empty. Free Space: 0bytes Used Space: 0bytes Capacity: 0bytes The drive contains all the files i backed up from my previous OS and all the files that was originally on it. I really need help to try resolve this as it contains allot of information and documents that i need for family and work. Help much appreciated. Matt.
