How to fix drive is not accessible in Windows 10/8/7

External hard drives and USB Flash drives are used everyone nowadays to store personal data on there drives, this could be data like documents, photos, music, videos and a lot more.

Sometimes, without warning the disk shows a Location is not available popup box or “Drive is not accessible when trying to access the drive, you get Access is denied” error message. This error will make accessing the drive impossible until you fix the error. You can’t get access to your personal data. Over the years I have seen this error on different versions of operating systems like Windows 10/8/7.

Remember A USB flash drive is not a long to backup solution.

    Access Denied as you do not have sufficient privileges or the disk may be locked by another process.
    You have to invoke this utility running in elavated mode and make sure the disk is unlocked.

    I watched the video, but unfortunately, I was not able to fix my external hard drive. In the command section, it said, "the drive, the path or file name is not valid. I have thousands of songs 🎵 that my computer is not recognising the drive. I do not know what to do. Please help

  11. It worked for me as well, but then when I opened the hard drive the files were not folders anymore. So when I try to open one of them gives me only the "open with" option… So I guess I just changed the problem… Someone would know what to do?

    Omg, thank you so much for this 🙏 I've been going crazy trying all kinds of things for hours and this worked. 👏👏👏

  16. Richard Bonales

    mine says "cannot open volume for direct access" can I still fix this?

  17. Keith Monahan

    Thanks Brian, another excellent video. !! 👍 However it did not resolve my issue. When I ran the syntax from the CMD line for my external 2.5” internal drive slaved out USB I received the error: “Cannot open volume for direct access.” Not only that but following your previous step before the CMD line, I am also “Not,” able to read/recognize the drive in its raw form. I’ve been battling this issue for quite some time now. I go from either, “disc is not initialized,” to “cannot initialize due to fatal hardware device error.” I’m about out of options here. The disk that I’m trying to access and recover data from was the former “primary drive,” from one of my other laptops. It has data that I need to recover, but cannot mount the volume for some reason. Anything at all that you could suggest would be greatly appreciated. As always I appreciate all of your tutorials. Best regards from across the pond 🇺🇸 – Keith
