    Cannot Access a Drive -- Permission Problen

    I have 2 partitions on one of my HD's. I can access one of them (F) but not the other (D) apparently due to a permission problem. Here is a screen shot of the Advanced Security Settings for each. Note the permissions for D: are not the same as F:. How can I give full control to (Users)Windows10\Users) or at least my user name?

    Thank you very much.

    Do you note the "Applies to" column? The permission only applies to the root folder only, not including its subfolder and files. Here's how to grant full access to the "Users" group:
    1. Click on the Add button.
    2. In the "Select User or Group" dialog box, click on Advanced... button.
    3. Click Find Now. Select "Users" group and click OK.
    4. You can then tick the permission "Full control", select "This folder, subfolders and files" under the "Apply to" drop-down box.
    5. Click OK. Done.
