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"
:mad:

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....

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


F:\ is not accessible
Access is denied.
