Windows 7: Can't save documents, etc. from other drives

Can't save documents, etc. from other drives

When I try to save documents or anything to my other hard drive (not main drive), I get an error saying I can't do it. Even when I open the file from the secondary drive and try to save, I get an error saying "Access to 'blah blah blah' was denied". I can only save stuff on my C: drive. What's going on??? There must be something to disable this crappy feature.

Disabling UAC prompt doesn't fix your problem. It is a workaround that doesn't address the problem at all and now defeats its purpose of security, exposing you to future problems. How about we address the problem of you having access denied to your separate drive. Have you tried taking ownership of it yet?
