I had a 1.5TB hard disk in a Windows 2003 Server. Two partitions, one FAT and the other NTFS.
The server crashed, and while we are ordering a new one, I would like to access the data on that volume. However, when I attach the drive to my Windows 7 64bit desktop, the entire NTFS volume shows up as Access Denied. (The FAT volume is accessible just fine.)
In Explorer, the volume shows up with no info:
In Logical Disk Manager, the volume appears with no info:
I tried running TAKEOWN on the volume, but since the entire volume is inaccessible, it didn't work:
I also don't have permission to take ownership using the Windows 7 GUI:
I have the username, password, and SID of the owner from the server where this volume was previously. The volume was not encrypted and was not compressed.
How can I gain access to this drive?
