Welcome Pichu1:

Exactly what are you doing when it denies you access to your drive.

Your system does boot? right?

A bit more information would be helpful before anyone can give you a starting
point to help you.

Also, it would help if you filled out a bit more in your system specifications.

Boot some Linux distro and you'll be able to see the files on your C drive.
