Hi , I recently read a tutorial about"how to restrict access to other users to your files "

> First i rightclicked on my d drive>properties> security then i saw "everyone" has access to the files. so i removed that and clicked ok...then after i tried to open the files on d drive it says "ACCESS DENIED" I am the administrator ...but still i cant acess the files...i even tried reinstalling the OS .but the problem still exists...

PLEASE HELP ME .I HAVE VERY IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS IN IT.

Many Thanks
