Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What do you exactly mean that you get an ACCESS DENIED error or that Windows Explorer is not showing local drives?
Try and run the CMD (Start,, RUN, type CMD and press enter) and then do a <b>DIR c:\</b>

**************************************

It’s probably Group Policy (Domain or local) denying you to view local drives. One way to try is to connect to \\clientmachinename\c$ or open up Computer management on any computer with domain level admin access. Then within computer management, connect to the client machine, go to disk management, and you will see the local drives on that machine.

    What OS and Service Pack level? Did it work before and now does not? Does it work on other machines you log into?

    Hi,
     
    Try to check your local security policy run secpol.msc->Local policies->Network access->Sharing and security model for local account. It should be set to classical.

    Hope this helps.
