I have a weird situation where my data drive  (D) says access denied when I open it. However, when I boot into safe mode I am able to access it without an issue. I ran malware bytes, VIPRE recue, checked my startup. Nothing out of the ordinary. What am I missing?

Can you take ownership of the D: Drive (I assume this is not a system drive).

You can do that in the Properties, Security tab,

Here is a pictorial article to guide you.

I took ownership before, but this time it took,. Whey would it loose the ownership all of a sudden?

I am not sure why it would lose ownership because that does not happen to me.

Now that you have got access again (Good to know). shut the system down, start it up and ensure ownership of the drive remains intact.

Thanks for the update. I am not sure what might have happened to cause the drive to lose ownership.
