So today I was trying to move space from partition D to C, and on the way I played with the permissions and stuff in order to make it work.. Then I made the free space unallocated, and extended partition C to have all of the space and it worked.. But then
I lost access to this partition and anything related, I can't even refresh my PC or reset it, I can't do anything that has that shield on it, because I don't have ownership and permission to access it :((
I can't even save an image in order to show you my problem, so I will explain it in words ..
1. All I have in Computer is "Local Disk (C:)" -> Clicking on it leads to "C:\ is not accessible. Access is denied"
2. Right click -> Properties -> Security tab -> Can't see any user to edit or add, not able to grant permissions.. All I see is "Object name: C:\ (!) You must have Read permissions to view the properties of this
object. Click Advanced to continue"
3. Clicking Advanced leads me to : "Owner: Unable to display current owner. (Change)" -> Clicking Change leads to "Can't open access control editor. Access is denied."
4. On Permissions, Auditing and Effective Access it says "You must have Read permissions to view the properties of this object. Click Continue to attempt the operation with administrative permissions" -> Continue leads to "Can't open access control
editor. Access is denied."
Please help me :( I really tried everything before posting here, I lost hope!
