How to Unlock Hard Drives

The file properties on your computer’s hard drive can be locked, preventing you from making changes to files and folders. They will stay that way until you resolve the situation. You can do this by rewriting the effective properties for the files on the drive. This will unlock the information on the hard drive and allow you to re-access and make changes to the files. Instructions
Right-click “Start” and click “Explore”.

Click on the unit to be unlocked.

Highlight all files and folders on the root of the drive. Right click and choose “Properties”.

Uncheck “Read only” and press “Apply” to unlock the drive information.
