    I have a fairly old system (Athlon 64 3300+ 2.4GHz). I had two hard drives one consisting of my c: drive that was 160GB. The second is 320GB partitioned into a D: and E: drive. Running Windows 7 Ultimate (on C: drive)

    My C: drive recently failed and I had to replace it. I decided to try an SSD drive ( Kingston V-Series 64GB) installed new drive with Windows 7 without any problems (very nice improvement in performance BTW). By Bios recognizes the now c: drive as the primary boot disk, as well as the d:/e: drives. I am able to access the d: and e: drive without any issues.

    The problem I am having is when I try and save a file to these drives (d or e) I receive a message saying I do not have permission to save to this drive (neither d: or e) . I am able to save the file to my C: drive and then copy it over to d: or e:, but this is a pain.

    Any suggestions on what I can do to give myself permission to save to this drive. I did not format this drive when I re-installed windows on the new SSD drive as I have a lot of files on it that I did not want to lose. Could this be the reason?

    Thanks

    Right click on both drives and go to security. Give yourself permission. Remember you installed the new C drive hence you have new credentials or user name. Give that username/account permission to access the d and e drives.
