log on with your computer administrator and check again, there is privilege problem and your local user don't have rights.

If it's not a protection problem, as yasir siddiquie suggests, you can try recovery programs like EASEUS Partition Recovery, Recuva, or any of the dozen mentioned in these threads.

Maxtor aren't 100% compatible with nVidia chipset, but try:

- Get EventID
- NT5.x or NT6.x chkdsk X: /B /X /R /F /V
- S.M.A.R.T.
- Test your HDD (UBCD etc.)
- Trash or recovery (Easeus, Testdisc, ... etc.)
