You've certainly lost administrator rights on the file or folder.

To recover these rights, just follow the following procedure:

Open Security tab

On Vista and Windows 7, the Security tab is displayed by default.
Accessing file

Right click on the file/folder
Properties tab
Click on Edit
Select your name/your session
Click on "Apply" then "OK".

Try this 1

You nee to add the permissions to it.

Click on Start --> In search box, type cmd. When the cmd appears in the

search list, right-click on it and select "Run as administrator".

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

Since access denied message appears only for F-Drive, enter the below


takeown /f f: --> Press Enter.

icacls f: /grant username:f --> Press Enter.

Note : In the above icacls command, replace the word

"username" with your account username.

Good Luck
