  1. C drive access denied


    I was trying to keep my 120 gig ssd drive just for windows. I have a 1 terabyte hard drive for the rest. In the process I locked myself out. Anything I try to do I get access denied. I still have admin rights, but its worthless. I cant even trouble shoot. Ive tried 4 different resets, no good. What want to know is can I have it installed on my other hard drive instead, No cd came with pc. Then maybe I can reformat my ssd hard drive?Hope someone can help thanks

    :)
