Windows 7: Questions that I'm hoping that it will clear my doubt

I assume the drive is set asside for Data and is formatted NTFS?

With these assumptions I would appear that you have an NTFS Permissions issue.

NTFS permissions are written to the actual drive and are persistent over an Operating system Change.

Although we allocate permissions to Names users the system sees these as an ID. Although we may create the same user name on a new install it is almost certain that the system will allocate a different code.

as you cannot see the drive contents at all you may have to enable the hidden administrator to "see" the drive, and to give control of the drive to either the Administrators group, or your actual user - once you have access you can allocate the rights to the drive for users as you deem fit

I tried login as administrator and did see that the disk is usable. I can click and view the stuff in there. I right click> Properties> Security Tab, set permission to Everyone.

I am certain that the Allow ticks had been ticked. Hence, I login back to my own account, the hard disk is still Not Accessible.

Is there a way to do it?

Can you now see the root of the drive but still have issues with actually accessing files ?

Under Administrator mode, I am able to see everything including moving and deleting of files.

When I switched back to user mode, I can only see the drive with the word NTFS and not able to access it. Even the bar to show the free space does not appear at all.

Done that. I saw SYSTEM and User/Admin with full permission control.

However, when I come back to user/admin mode, I am still unable to access it.

I had decided to format the drive off and now it is usable. That's the only way to do it swiftly instead of figuring out for days. All the methods given cannot resolve the issue, but I am very appreciate for the help.

Also, for the languages pack, do I need to install all of them?
Because when I installed, I gotten of:

1. Yes, that would be correct.

2. 100gb would safer. Fortunately, Windows 7 includes a partition modification tool. So, should the need arise, you can always change the size of the partitions.
