    Windows 8 Ownerships.


    Hi, thank you for taking your time to read this post and I really hope that someone has the answers.

    I installed windows 8 on a second HDD and left my original OS alone in case of an emergengy and I wanted to back down....

    So I have
    Windows 7 on SDA1
    Windows 8 on SDA3
    and
    my 2TB data drive on SDA5

    During my first install of 8 it asked to do a file consistency check on my data drive, I missed the chance to say no.
    Now I am NOT able to read my 2TB HDD in anyother OS. Not even if I take the drive out and put it into another system. But yet I can read it in windows 8.


    WHAT HAVE I DONE?
    How can I change all ownerships to "nothing"


    P.S
    When it was doing the check that took about 3 hours it said, replacing invalid ownerships to default ones. Or something on that line.

    Thoughts please......


    Again thank you for your time....

    Plugin the drive into the win7 system and try taking ownership of the drive.

    You may need to do this further for individual folders and so on.

    I had Take Ownership install by default under my own install of windows 7.

    I tried the take ownership, and a cmd prompt pops up for a micron and then goes away.

    A quick reboot showed no effect either. XD
