I've got three
internal hard drives- in one partition Vista Home Premium 64-Bit, in second partition Ubuntu 8.10 64-Bit, and one being used for storage. Until now everything worked nicely. Now, the storage drive [E:] does not let me write to it. I cannot rename, delete, cut, or write any new files to any part of that drive. That's troublesome, since that's where I send all of my downloads to! Even earlier in this session of windows it was working nicely, I was able to download a torrent of the recent Ubuntu 8.04 release (legal and distributed from ubuntu.com). I started Far Cry 2 (a game), and now that I've quit that, I cannot write to the drive. Specifically, the error is:
"The disk is write protected. Remove the write protection or use
I've tried changing the security settings to allow USERS, or even just Administrators, full control of the drive, to no avail. I cannot modify the security settings. When I try, I get:
"An error occurred while applying security information to E:\abc\pqr The media is write protected."
I can assure you that I've not enabled any type of write protection. Any ideas? I'd really like to have this working again as otherwise I'm extremely limited on storage space.
Thanks in advance!
