Hi, i recently installed a new hard drive in my windows xp system . Everything went fine , installed it , formated it using ntfs and mounted it as dynamic device in the disk management console.

But i can only write data on the hard disk when im logged on as administrator, as a power user ( my every day work account) i can only read data from the hard disk , if i trie to write or delete data on it , access is denied !
How can i change the rights ?

Also my other partitions work flawless under poweruser , which i cant understand as they were also created using my admin account.

1. Change your user account to <b>administrator</b> (easy way).
2. Clear the option <b><font color=red>Use simple file sharing (Recommended)</b></font color=red> in <b>Folder options</b> so when you click on the HD's property it shows <b>Security</b> tab. Go into it, add your account and set it to have full control on that HD.
