    Take Ownership, now can't see all folders.

    I recently added a new hard drive (no problems with that one) but when I moved the order of hard drives around, I got an "Access is denied" message when I tried to open another hard drive. I tried the method of changing the security settings as in this video:

    How to fix Access is denied Hard Drive not accessible on Windows 10 - YouTube

    Clicked Apply and the hard drive was scanned. But only a couple of folders are now visible. Any ideas on how I can either reset whatever happened? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Whelp...I ended up using File Scavenger to recover all my files. Worked well, but pretty stressful.

Solved 'take ownership' in Win 10
In my trusty Win 7 I had installed/inserted a 'take ownership' command in the normal task bar when right clicking on an object. I think this was from Brink ? Is this available in 10 and is it the same process to install it ? Thanks....TiminAz
