Hi, when I try to open my USB Flash drive I get the following message: E:\ "Access Denied". How can I regain access to my Flash Drive?

Thanks

right click on the START icon, select explore all users, navigate to your USB stick in the left column, and you should be able to open it.
alternatively go to RUN type E: and press enter.
