Hello everyone

I am using windows xp, i have earlier kept security restriction for drive E: to open only by the administrator, later on i have removed the restriction.

My windows crashed due to power failure, i reinstalled windows, but now by using administrator account, the drive E is not accessible. Its shows the following message. "E:\ is not accessible. access is denied"

When i right click on its properties,. it shows only 3 tabs general,. tools and hardware.

How can i get access back, i have my important files in them. Please help

More about : drive accessible

One suggestion I read is to boot into Safe Mode and try to take ownership of the drive there.

Thank you very much kenrivers, that worked out :) 

But changing the permissions of each file is a tiresome work.

Thanks once again :)  you made my day :)
