    I cant access G drive


    I disabled User permissions temporarily and later when I enabled it, the changes would not effect all sub folders. When I try to access those folders, I get "The Recycling Bin on G:\ corrupted. Do you want to empty the Recycle Bin for this drive?" With a yes or no prompt.

  3. no access to G drive in windows 10

    Nov 26, 2015

    Hello Kiska,

    When you asked about not being able to access your G Drive were your referring to the the path of "G Drive" or an actual external "G-Drive" made by G technology.

    Parth P Patel,

    I just upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 pro today.

    My external G-Drive (made by G Technology has always worked great with Windows 7 but no longer is accessible with Windows 10.

    I plugged the G-Drive into my MS SP3 and it works fine so I know it's not the drive or the cord.

    Any suggestions.

    Please let me know, I am dead in the water without access to that drive.

    Thank you,

    Mark Brewster
