    I have a problem with accessing files on a second internal hard drive that I believe is related to Media Center.

    Running Windows 7 there were two file folders on my second internal hard drive that I store photos and videos in. I added those to my library in WMC and was able to view files via WMC, but the file permissions became locked. So, I had to go into each folder and subfolder to change permissions, etc. It wasn't easy and not every file was unlocked, but it was done. I was able to read every file in Windows and MOST files in WMC.

    I recently reinstalled Win7. Now, the same two folders that WMC had persmissions issues with prior to the fresh install are not available to add to the library. AND now I cannot access those files via Windows.

    I find it very odd that after the fresh install this happened (and to a worse degree) to only the folders that had permissions issues prior.

    Anyone know of how I can take a look at this?
