Windows 7: D Drive is Access Denied after Windows 7 Reinstall

D Drive is Access Denied after Windows 7 Reinstall

Greetings, I previously had a post under "Network and Sharing
http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/26705-no-networks-connect-very-weired.html" that I resolved by reinstalling Windows 7.

My computer has one hard disk that I partitioned to C: and D:, C: has the operating system and D: has my data. After reinstalling Windows 7, I tried to access D: but I received "Access Denied" error. In computer management, the drive is present, Windows can see it but it cannot access it.

Any help to enable me to access my D: drive would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all.

Take ownership is not enough.

You also need to add either your username or one of the following users:
administrators, users, or authenticated users.

If you don't know how, search this forum.
If you really can't find it, check back here.

can you browse thru the contents of the partition? open run command dialog box and type D:\ and press Enter.
