All Flash Drives & External Hard Drives NOT ACCESSIBLE?

Dec 4, 2014
Reaction score
I set up a new computer. Windows 7 Pro 64x
Everything was fine but then I connected a flash drive to it and I get:

Location Not Available
H:\ is not accessible. Access is denied

If I go into the properties to the “security” tab, it says “you do not have permission to view or edit this object’s permission settings”

If I go into the “owner” tab of Advanced Security Settings, current owner says “Unable to display current owner”

This is on every flash drive and portable hard drive on all 4 usb ports.
I am logged in as the administrator and there is not even another user account on the computer
I’ve run sfc /scannow

I’m absolutely stumped. I’ve never had this happen on any computer where I couldn’t use an external device.

This is not my computer so I’ll have to do whatever remotely.

Thank you for the help.
