    hey everyone,

    i'd be interested if anyone had a thought as to why i can access a secondary local hard drive using my XP install, but WIN7 says that access is denied. can't view storage stats, can't run any diagnostics... etc.

    thanks so much!

    carl.

    you must take ownership of the drive or at least allow yourself the necessary permissions to access it.

    I have same problem too.

    I have 2 winchester, in 1st there is 2 particions (XP&Win7) for the OP systems, and the 2nd winchester is the problem.

    The win7 cant access the 2nd winchester only if I use the bitlocker, then if I use the bitlocker , I Can't see the data in XP because the 2nd winchester is encrypted:(

    I don't want set the ntfs permissions, because I set it always both OP system

    Somebody has an idea this in a case?

    Thanks a lot
