can't save in newly created partition in vista

By vineet.sheoran ·

I recently bought a lenovo laptop pre-loaded with Visa OS and created a 55GB HD partition/volume using EASEUS partition manager but ever since the partition (D drive) was created I cannot save any files in the newly created disk drive. Funny enough even though I cannot directly save any files I can copy and paste (.jpeg, gif, pdf, doc...) files into / drive. The message I get when trying to save a file is "You don't have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission". The user account I use when login into vista has full administrative rights so I don't think that is the problem.

I never had this problem in XP. Can anyone please help solve this mystery?

Frustrated vista user.

When you created the drive did you use Disk Management to format the drive. If you did right click on the drive and select properties.
Select the Security Tab. Check that System and Administrators have Full Control under Allow. Make the modifications if necessary.
