Hi,
I think it disabled in registry,
Open Registry
then check the following key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Check DWORD value : NoDrives
if exist make that value 0.

This is good and looks like it would work. What does one do tho if the "runas" key is already being used for adding "Take Ownership" to the right-click context menu? M$ should really update this as not being able to re-lock a drive without re-booting (or re-starting explorer.exe) is ridiculous!
