Now I am unable to access this USB drive. Is there an easy way to reverse what I have done? I have tried but not been able to be successful getting back my ability to access the drive. I checked and System Restore did not include this drive when I created it. I was warned about making changes ahead of time but thought that as Administrator I could change anything back. Turns out I had Administrator disabled in my Permissions or Users configuration. What a screw up...too many stupid pills I guess. TIA for your help....
Originally the permissions were anybody....this is what I was trying to accomplish. Not allowing anybody to access the usb drive. After changing them to my user account (this is one of my screw ups, I thought I had Administrator privileges but Administrator was disabled) Collossal screw up. I was warned in a context message that it could mess up access but went ahead and made the change. I have never used Linux before so I am not familiar with the commands. Am I screwed? I am assuming I cannot even format the drive because I cannot access it. Could it be formatted in Safe Mode? Thanks for your help.
