change the security settings on the drive
right click the drive in my computer
go to security
select which users you want to modify
choose the settings you want
click apply or ok
hopefully that works for you
No security tab/settings available under properties.
There is a Sharing tab with "Make this folder private" option unchecked. Right clicking the drive gives me a "Sharing and Security" option that has no user selections to modify.
My 1st error message when attempting to save to the drive was "folder is write-protected or has errors".
I deleted the partition and repartitioned and formatted the drive which then gave me the "Permission " message.
I can save to the drive with the administrator account. I am using XP Pro and have run with 2 HDD's previously, one for the system files and the other for user files. The system HDD (80 GB) crashed and I am replacing it with a 120 GB HDD and using a 320 GB HDD for the user files.
The 320 is the one I can't save to.
Originally I made it an extended partion with 3 logical drives.
It now has 1 120GB NTFS formatted and partitioned logical drive the remainder is still unformatted free space.
Do I need to start over and wipe both drives clean and re-install windows?
I have run chkdsk and it shows no errors on the 320 GB HDD.
