Gaining Access to a Locked Drive

By embela ·
One of our Managers has locked out the Domain Administrators and everyone from accessing his 'C' drive. When logging onto the computer the Domain Administrators and the Administrator of the local machine can not get their profiles inorder for them to gain access (by taking ownership)of the locked drive. We can not format the drive coz there are important files. The Operating System on the machine is Windows NT 4.0.

Go to Users Manager for Domain and change his password, then you should be able to login as him and access the drive and its files.

Good Morning Dle,

I have no problem with that, but even his profile is corrupted. He does not get anything on his desktop. Pliz E-mail me: embela@ken.icsinspections.com.

Thank you.

Eric

Hey, My Learned-friends,

We at the office found the solution. Install the OS on 'D' drive, which the manager had rights on, make him a Domain Administrator inorder to access the 'C' drive and change the rights.

Have a wonderful day!
