    Access denied local drive after changing permission


    Hello

    I was trying to change access under security tab in properties to my local disk S:

    However I messed up the process and now I am unable to access the whole drive. I have run chkdsk in cmd after dismounting and it is showing no error. Please note after initiating the permission change I aborted the process just after few moments. Now I am clueless on how to get back to last/default access settings.

    I am the administrator and the only user in this PC. However I created another guest user profile while I was trying to change the security(access).


    windows version: windows 10 Home .


    Please help me since I have crucial files in the local drive. Thanking in advance. Access denied local drive after changing permission c967de28-0b57-4027-ae77-7db7428ac578?upload=true.jpg

    Unable to access a folder, it denies permission

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you have an issue with permission.
    I will surely help you to fix this issue.

    To understand the issue better, I would need more information from your end.1. Is the issue specific with a particular folder?

    2. What is the complete error message?

    This issue could have occurred due to these reasons:


    • Permission issue.

    • Corrupt User Account.

    • Damaged files.

    I suggest you to try the steps under the section Issue 1:
    I get an "Access Denied" error message when accessing or working with files and folders
    in the following article and check if it helps.

    Note:

    1. Applies to Windows 10.

    2. You may need to be logged on as an administrator to change file and folder permissions.
