  1. Access denied to new drive after clone


    I am new to Windows 10 I am logged in as Administrator. I recently got a new Dell 8940 desktop with a 256GB NVMe drive (CAccess denied to new drive after clone :) and a 1T HDD.(DAccess denied to new drive after clone :) I have successfully added all my personal data to the D: drive and plan on only adding required program files to C: I also added a 500GB SSD for backups of cloning and System Imaging. I partitioned it and called it Drive F: and Drive G: and wanted to do a weekly clone of my C: drive to it. I used EaseUS TODO Backup to clone my C: drive to drive F: I am now denied access to F: drive and can't even format it. Although all other files and folders on the computer have a security tab enabled, this new drive does not. In the registry, I set the value to zero for enabling security tab but it still isn't available for this drive. I have have been cloning my C: drive on Windows 7 for years without an issue. My questions are, 1. How can I format this new SSD drive and start over? 2. How can I clone my C: drive to another drive that I can have access to and boot from? Any help is appreciated

    :)

    Spunk and Samuria,
    Thank you for your thoughtful replies.
    As you can see, Disk 1 only has a grayed out pop up menu on the partition that still has the C: drive clone.
    I'm not able to do anything to it.
    I was able to format the other partition without a problem.

    I hadn't considered that I couldn't have two bootable drives at the same time.
    That's what I was use to in Windows 7.

    Clone Bitlocker enable drive to SSD

    My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

    Heed the advice of the software, you must disable BitLocker before cloning. This is highly recommend if you ever want to get access to the drive.

    There is nothing wrong with having to re-enable it after restoring the clone.

    Step 1: disable BitLocker.

    Step 2: clone drive

    Step 3: restore the cloned image to the new drive.

    Step 4: Re-Enable BitLocker.
