I can't access C: drive

By Sixfox ·
I can't access my C drive, these message appears when click c drive:

C is not accessible
Access denied.

Some files under C drive, these message appears:

Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

I am sure have done these by mistake when accessing file permissions, but now I can't access it anymore to redo changes.

If there is anyway I can solve this without lossing data from my computer, that is what I want please.
