    <SPAN id=_ctl1_ctlTopic_ctlPanelBar_ctlTopicsRepeater__ctl1_lblFullMessage>When I upgraded from XP to Vista I lost access to the second hard drive in my system. I fact there are no authenticated users shown so the drive data is no accessible at all. I try correcting this via the security tab after right clicking the drive but I just get the same error message.."ACCESS DENIED".

    Does anyone else have this problem and/or know how to fix it ?</SPAN>

    Are you sure you are an administrator? type secpool.msc in run prompt and navigate to user policys. Make sure you are, and once you are try right clicking the drive and going to properties and making sure the privelages are checked to allow access/read/write to the drive.
