    I am no longer able to access the files in local disk D of my computer as i changed some of the settings, i need help on making my local disk D accessible again, Also how do you make the local disk accessible only to the administrator instead of all the accounts on the computer. I am using windows 7. All help will be greatly appreciated.

    It may be necessary to reassign permissions for the admin acc..lol.. that'll teach you it did me

    easiest & safest method i can think of is either hide the files by using properties or use my lockbox or remove drive letter so D no longer shows up in my comp (it will in comp manage) or hide the partition with something like the free minitool partition software & change all user accounts apart from admin to std user that way no one will be able to unhide except admin account
