I was able to access my flash drive last Friday, 2/28/14, and any day prior to that without any problems however Monday, 3/3/14, I get the following error when attempting to access my drive, "You don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click Continue to permanently get access to this folder." Upon clicking Continue, another error pops up, "You have been denied permission to access this folder. To gain access to this folder you will need to use the security tab." Security tab is an underlined link that opens the properties manager for the drive however there is no security tab, I assume because the flash drive is considered a virtual drive, which is typical, so I can't take ownership of the drive as suggested by all the Google searches I did. This desktop runs Win 7 Pro, 32-bit, SP1 as does every other desktop in the office (minus the server). This is my work desktop and upon testing my flash drive in other desktops around the office, it works perfectly fine, it also works just fine on my desktop at home but not this one. The account on my desktop is also an admin however I am not the only user but I know the others who have access do not know how to change permissions that would cause this. The company I work for tries to block all access to forums/video/picture/tech sites (which can be incredibly counter-productive when trying to solve tech issues around the office) and this is one of the few unblocked forum domains I could find. Hoping someone here may know what happened between last Friday and Monday to cause this issue.
