Hdd Aceess Denied

Having catch a virus, and can´t access to the hard drive. Meanwhile put the disk in another pc and when I try to access the disk the following message appears:

Disk E: is not accessible, access denied

However I can access information through a data recovery software.

Can I remove the permissions of the disk so that it returns to normal.

You should be able to take ownership of drive/ folders - change ownership info and set permissions once again,
