  1. Help me gain access to my files


    My laptop came with a 1 tb hard drive with an additional m.2 ssd slot. After using it without ssd for a while, I recently purchased a samsung m.2 ssd. I managed to install windows on it but for some reason the windows installation on my hard drive became corrupt ( i know it doesn't make sense). Now I thought that since I'm not going to use hard drive for booting windows anyway it's not a big deal. I thought I'll just be able to access the data on my hard drive when i boot from the ssd ( as all my hard drive partitions are visible in file explorer). The problem is I can't access any file on any of my partitions. As soon as i try to open a file, it says that I don't have permission to access the file. I tried to take ownership of certain files but I still cant access them. Please help. I don't even know if this is the right place to be asking this question but I really want my data back.

    File access denied to many files


    Since Upgrading to Windows 10, I am now experiencing problems accessing many files?

    How can I gain access to ALL my files?

    Can this be done in one operation, easily, or is it difficult?

    Step by Step instructions would be greatly appreciated?

    Thanks
