I am trying to use my CD Drive E to backup some information. However, I keep getting the message: "You do not have access to the folder 'E:\'. See your administrator for access to this folder."
I am logged on as the owner. How do I make myself the administrator?
Thanks so much for any help you can give me - I am going nuts.

2 Open Administrative Tools
3 Open Local Security Policy
4 Expand Local Policies
