    Secondary Drives is locked, assessed denied. Unable to get permission.


    Hello, need help on getting permission to D:\ drive, access denied.

    I installed windows 10 on a new SSD which is currently my drive C:\. There was a windows 7 which was on drive D:\ but I never uninstall it. Drive D:\ was working normally until during boot today windows decided to do a checkdisk on drive D: (dont know the cause), which tried to repair it.

    Currently I totally cannot access my drive D:\.
    Tried to grant permission to myself to assess it but failed, keep having errors such as this:

    Hi

    I've also had this happen on a Number of Computers in the past and its quite a hard one to get out of, although you could try booting in Safe Mode.

    Having been caught out by this a few times, nowadays I keep nothing of any real significance on my Computer, everything I do is Backed up on an External Hard Drive.

    As if this kind of thing happens to me I prefer to do a Clean Install, in order to eliminate any corrupt files that may make it happen again at some time in the future.

    But if I want to Stop (Check disk CHDSK) from pulling that stunt again, this is what I do.

    Start>cmd (right Click) Run as Admin.

    cmd>chkntfs /x c:>(hit enter)>(type)exit>(hit enter)

    There is a space between chkntfs (and) /

    There is also a space between x (and) c:

    Its always worked for me in the past although I haven't tried it out on Windows 10.

    Backing Up all your Files/Photos etc is really something everyone should get in the habit of doing every time.

    So there is no way to retrieve data from the D: drive besides accessing it with other OSes like ubuntu?

    While I can't think of a better way of doing what you suggested, may be someone else can.

    But because I have all my Data Backed up on an External Hard Drive, if I get a problem then I much prefer to Format the Drive and Start all over again.

    But Only because I've Backed Up all my Data/Photos/Files etc.
    Its just 'My' Personal Preference that's all.

    No, you will be able to do it in Windows, you just need to persevere down the route you are going.

    Take ownership of the drive root with your user account name, have 'replace child permissions' checked. Press continue on any error messages. After you've got ownership apply full permission to your user account.

    There are a few other scenarios where you may need to do some slightly different things in the ownership/permissions dialogues. But, ultimately you will be able to get control, even if you have to activate the super admin account.

    I had this problem too. First you'll want to right click and click on properties, go to the advanced security tab. Note what is shown as owner. Click on change owner, advanced, find now. Find your username on the list and click okay. Check the box that says "replace owner on subcontainers". Apply. After that is done you need to add the following with full permissions in the advanced security permissions tab: System, Administrators (Plural) and "your username". Be sure to check the box to "replace permissions on subcontainers" before hitting apply.

    Ok, thanks for the instructions. Problem solved.

    How do I prevent this from happening again? Delete the windows files? Reformat?

    It shouldn't happen again now that you've set the correct ownership/permissions for your system.

    It will happen again IMHO. I think it's a bug. I had/have it too. Seems there is some problem in dual booting or in win 7 being there. My system has a drive tray for C: and I swap between Win 10 and Win 7 installed on different drives. going back and forth seems to be an issue with permissions for the two OSs and my D drive.
