permission to access an NTFS drive

r.g.nixon, Jun 23, 5:09am
Permission to access an NTFS drive I changed a computers C: drive from FAT32 to NTFS. The drive is shared to everyone on the network (as it was before), but I no longer have permission to open folders on it. I will google for the answerbut someone may have the answer just sitting there on the tip of the tongue..?

Log in as adminisrator and change the permissions for the user in the folders properties/security tab.

This is maybe what youre after? [ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421 ]. Its a prob i crossed when cloning a C drive onto a new hdd for somebody, but not sure if it will fix a NTFS to Fat32 prob tho?

Sounds like the same info as has posted ...

Actually what OS are you using? Or should that be what version of Windows? Changing permissions varies.

If its XP Home change the permissions in "Safe Mode"

Yes, it's XP Home logged in as admin, but there was no security tab on c:\ properties. Thanks, will try that later.
