    F:\ is not accesible, Access is denied

    hi guys, i want to expand my F drive into two partitions.. i started doing it so by "Disk Management Utility" and accidently cancelled the process in the middle of it. After this, i m receiving this error on my F Drive.
    F:\ is not accesible, Access is denied

    When i checked properties of F drive, it shows used space = 0 bytes and free space = 0 bytes.
    But in Disk management, it shows 108 Gb total, and free 108 Gb

    Can anybody help me in resolving this issue?
    i have very imp data on this drive..

    You nee to add the permissions to it.

    Click on Start --> In search box, type cmd. When the cmd appears in the
    search list, right-click on it and select "Run as administrator".
    "Command Prompt" will be opened.
    Since access denied message appears only for F-Drive, enter the below

    takeown /f f: --> Press Enter.
    icacls f: /grant username:f --> Press Enter.
