  • Hello Ronald Morata,

    If you remove, or like in this case, deny the access to the drive by entering a deny permission or removing the user/group from the access client list you will need to take ownership of the whole drive and replace the permissions on all the child objects (files, folders, etc...) as follows:

    - Go to the security tab on the drive's properties window.
    - Click on the advanced button
    - On the "Owner:" row select the option "change"
    - Look for the account that will have now the ownership and access to this drive.
    - Check mark the "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" and then click apply
    - Once it finishes to replicate the permissions you could have warnings saying that some file could not be changed, just skip it, otherwise you will have an informational message saying:
    "If you have just taken ownership of this object, you will need to close and reopen this object's properties before you can view or change permissions"
    - Click ok on the permissions windows
    - Now you should have access otherwise try to add permissions to the Everyone group and see if that works.

    I hope this information help you to reach your goal. :D
