I own a WD My Passport Essential 320gb external Drive, it used to work fine , but now when I plug it in it, I cannot see the properties window unless I go to the computer/manage/storage/disk management , there is shown OK, it shows the amount of free - used space, but if I click it and try to explore the contents it says : access denied
So I tried to set the permissions to full control under my admin-user all of them but the special permissions box…
I know my files are in there because when I apply the permission rights it shows the sub directories with my pictures and other work files which are all my life !
Please could any body help me retrieve my data in there, I don’t know if its the WD Smartware or what the one giving me the H: is not accessible Access is Denied.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide to me
