    Drive not accessible


    I have a data partition which is bitlockered.
    Sometimes when I boot my PC and unlock the part the drive letter momentarily disappears from Windows explorer then reappears but when clicked it throws the error 'Drive not accessible' even though teh icon has changed to show it's unlocked.
    Unmounting and remounting from disk management has no effect.
    Rebooting will often work but sometimes I have to reboot a number of times before it will unlock properly.
    Anyone know what this issue is or at last know how to fix it without having to reboot when it occurs?

    :)

    Cannot access shared network drive


    Personally, I wouldnt use Everyone. If anyone hacks into you, they have full access to everything and can demolish everything on your raid. I would rather set up accounts and access separately for each person. That way, I know who did all that damage. In the end with a little extra work, I feel more secure by using Authenticated Users.


    If this helps.
    step 1 create non-microsoft account and without email and address without admin rights
    step 2 share a drive or folder to specific user account (if Everyone is listed, remove it)
    step 3 set security > add Authenticated Users (if more than 1 account) or add specific users
    step 3a remove Everyone from list
    step 3b uncheck full control and write for all items listed except SYSTEM and Admin account.
    step 4 right click Start > Computer Management > System Tools > Shared Folders > Shares ... to verify settings and change anything else. You can also see the number of connections to each share here.

    Unable to access Drives

    Hi Suneel,

    One of the reasons why you're unable to access your hard disk or an external hard drive is that these drives have been corrupted. For us to provide an accurate resolution, kindly elaborate the issue by answering the questions listed below:

    • Are you trying to access external hard drives or just partitioned drives on your PC?
    • Were there any changes on your PC before this happened like software or updates installed?

    Just to make sure, kindly verify if your hard drive is reflected in your Device Manager. Kindly follow the steps listed below to check it:

    • Press the Start button.
    • Type Device Manager.
    • Under Disk drives, kindly check if there's an error on the hard drive listed.

    We'll be waiting for your reply.
