  1. i lost control on my E drive access in denied. my windows in in C:


    Hi

    today i made a seperate login for my children on my desktop.

    then i thought they should not have access to my Drive E because of my official/personal files,

    in the process of hit and trial to secure the drive, did some security changes to the drive E,


    right clicked on the drive E;

    then = give access to = advanced sharing clicked

    new box opened;


    in security tab;


    in the box: Group or user names


    i selected "Users KHAWAJA/Users"

    then clicked "edit" button

    new box opened

    in this one i denied the all checkboxes, mistakenly keeping in mind that i was doing it for users now i have lost control over my drive E:

    every time i click on it, it says "Access is denied".


    dont know what to do please help.

    :)
