Do you want to access the drive d and get your files. You can not access it when you double click the drive. The drive will says access denied.

the file you need is called takeownership you have to google for it as it's in one of the forums the file is in the form of a zip file and when extracted you select the takeownership and install a little code into your reg and when you select a folder right mouse button on it and select takeownership this willl get rid of access denied garbage and give you full control over the folder and you do the same on any hard drive.
os corruption. registry access denied or virus. or bad ram or had drive bad sectors
try burning a bootable live cd liek ubcd4win.com and recover data to usb drive or second drive. it could also be bad memory . theres memtest in the ubcd4win boot menu to test it. if it gets 2%on top line and no red on bottom, ram is fine
I recently had this problem. Whenever I clicked on any of the drives a window appeared with warning which said drive not accessible. Access is denied. Previously I thought that it is a virus which has edited my registry and is not allowing me to enter or even view my content. So I formatted the whole system but that didn't help. Now I am sharing this with you.
Open My Computer. Goto Tools>Options. Goto View Tab Pane. Uncheck the last Option in the Advanced Setting which says Use simple file sharing(Recommended). Apply the setting.
Open the properties window of the drive you are unable to access.Goto Security tab pane.
Now click on the Owner tab pane.
It's very rare that the ownership of the drive changes. But it happens once in a while.
So if you are the user say Admin then select Admin(ComputerName\Administrator).
Click on the box which says Replace owner on subcontainers and objects and click over Ok.
you have deleted the partition by the sound of it, I accidetly done it once.. try this
click start, right click on my computer and go to manage.. then double click on storage, disk management local.. and it should show up here, once you create a new partition on it, format it and your all set..
Well this message can be two things(if not more) One of them being that the disk has security set and you wil need to change those settings if you want access to the drive the other scenario being that a program has locked the disk for exclusive access.
Assuming you are using Windows XP.
To check the security go to the properties of the disk then click on security(Tf the security tab isn't there, Open my computer then click Tools->Folder Options then the View Tab. Scroll to the bottom/last option then uncheck Use Simple File-Sharing press OK/Apply)
Now back to Properties of the disk then Click the security tab.
You'll need to try this first and tell me what's there, or if u got any error message etc. My explanation might be to long if i try to explain every possibility.
This occurs when the drive was taken from a PC where someone made the drive un-shareable.
The fix in XP:
1. Turn off Simple File Sharing, via Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, View, (NOT) use Simple File Sharing.
2. Now when you right click the drive letter for the drive on the new PC you will see a Security tab (made invisible by Simple File Sharing).
3. On the Security Tab, add yourself or any user, and grant Full Permission.
4. Now you can Explore the drive like any other.
