Hey all, forgive me if this is dumb or has been answered already, but I'm having some serious issue with accessing a folder. I'll try to make this short.
I wanted to create a new user with standard access and only give them access to my "C:" (programs) and not my "D:" (downloads) so after creating the user, I went to security settings under D: drive/properties and I denied "Authenticated Users". I obviously know now that that wasn't the right thing to do. After that happened, my admin account didn't have access to drive D. So I went back and switched it back to "Allow/full control" and my admin acct has access to my D drive now but there are files that are in the drive (not in folders) that are still showing denied when trying to open and 1 folder is also being denied. When I see the security settings on these files/folder it says "You do not have permission to view/edit...etc"
My bad, I know this is long but I tried to summarize with detail as best as I could!
Oh! I also forgot to mention that I even tried restoring back to like the 15th and my access is still screwed up on those files/1 folder.
Thanks in advance everyone!

I figured something out. After checking the security on one of the denied files, I went to Advance, Owner, and Edited who "owns" the file (Admin) and it unlocked the file!
I have to do this to each file one by one, but at least I found a work around!
Oh and now that I'm here, can someone tell me if I can password protect access to a drive or how to lock out a standard user w/o screwing up Admin's access? LOL.
