More about : win hard drive connected externally win nhasian a b $ Windows 7 June 29, 2012 11:36:52 PM what do you mean they are under lockdown? did you encrypt the drive somehow with truecrypt or bitlocker? mtacomp July 7, 2012 12:32:50 AM No, no encryption routines, however I suspect but not certain that Norton may prevent me seeing the files because of past Malware activity on that drive? One other fact is that other loggers in that drive can access their files, but not the admin? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
