    I created a folder this week and set it up where only the admins could access it. This morning I tried getting to the folder and it tells me permission denied. I look at the security rights and I show amin having full access. I saw an article about enabling the hidden administrator user and I tried enabling it and logging in but it says it doesnt have access either. This is just a file on a secondary hard drive I have installed.

    Help?

    What do you mean by "where only admins could access it"? What is the path you used to create the folder and file? If you used one of the new "junctions", that could be your problem because you can't open that path, regardless of your account, because they're not really folders, they're soft-links to other locations.
