...hi guys yes I'm still using XP sp3,... having issues with usb465.8GB drive.
Self inflicted when I stopped a ntfs "permissions tool" DBC Studio which would'nt recurse a series of dir's.
"Access Denied" to the drive even from bootable media although I can search the drive for file locations etc (NTFS-Search.188.8.131.52.exe)
Also can navigate and retrieve anything with "DiskGenius" (only). I do not wish to copy hundreds of 1000's of files or reformat if poss ...been like this long before the covid.
...any help to reverse this read only hell would make me a happy bunny (pretty please)
