Hi there, sorry if you can't understand me because English is not my main language. I just purchased a SSD(Plextor PX-128M5Pro ATA Device) few days ago and I am currently using it as my main drive. I have my operating system(Windows 7 Ultimate x64) installed in the SSD and named it C: Drive. I have another 500gb HDD connected to my pc and I am currently using it as storage to store my other files as my SDD is only 128gb. I did a little research before installing, which most of people suggest is that disconnect my HDD while installing OS into SSD, I followed the instructions and it all went well after that. I was satisfied with the speed of starting up my windows as the system files are all installed in the SSD, the SSD is now my primary boot. Later on, I installed a few games(Dota2, Skyrim etc) into the SSD, everything worked fine and I was able to play my games very smoothly, however today what happened was after I restart my pc, the SSD denied me from accesing my games and I realize I do not have permission to write/modify the files that are installed in the SSD folders. I am the only user of this PC and apparently I am the only Administrator as well. I tried to change my permission on that folder(Program files x86) but I failed, the system wouldn't allow me to modify it. Right now I can't execute any games or programs that are installed in the SSD. This is the error message shown when I tried to launch my Steam(Dota2) from SSD.



I tried system restore, but it didn't work, did anyone else came across this problem?

Can somebody please help me as I do not have a lot knowledge on PC troubleshooting, I need a step-by-step guide to solve this problem. Your help is much appreciated, thank you in advance.

if you can create documents and save them on the drive with no issues - and there's no issues saving a picture from the internet onto the drive, then the issue is a Steam issue and has nothing to do with Windows
