Restart Explorer as Adminstrator

If you have problems with accessing a drive, with the error message: f:\ is not accessible. Access is denied

It can happen, if the drive doesn’t have this permission:
Everyone (This folder Only):

  • Read & Execute
  • List folder contents
  • Read

To access the drive, you need restart Explorer as administrator.

Find Explorer.exe as the user you are login as. In this example the username is admin_sofi, and kill it by right click on it and choice “End Task”

After start CMD as administrator, and write this command:
c:\windows\explorer.exe /NOACCHECK

After this you can see that explorer.exe is now running in “Elevated”
