Local Admin Account gets"Access Denied"

Last Modified: 2016-02-10
On a Windows 2008 R2 server I have two local accounts, the Local administrator account and Local Test account. The local Test account is a member of the local administrators group.

 The server has 3 local drives C:\, F:\ and G:\. The Local administrator account has no problems accessing all three local drives. The local Test account has no problems accessing local drives C: and G:, however every time I try to access local drive (F:) using the Local Test account I get Access denied even though the local test account is a member of the local administrators group.

What can cause the local Test account to be denied access to local drive (F:) ?
