    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:

    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.
