Advice me on how to turn off drive lock ?
Folow these steps:
Click on Start
type in "gpedit.msc", a Group Policy Editor result will appear. Click on it.
On the left side Find User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer
On the right side you will now see a list of functions and tasks. In this list find the "Prevent access to drives from my computer"
Double-Click on it and another dialog box will appear.
In this box if Disabled is selected, you will have access to drives. If Enabled is selected then your drives will be locked.
Choose your preference, click OK.
And that is it. You now know how to lock/unlock drives on your PC. This works for Vista as well as windows 7.
