win denied access to hdd used with linux

Post by hansh »

I refuse to go win 10 and would rather use win 7 for my old programs and linux mint mate for surfing and the future .
I use hdd cassettes. One hdd for system and one for data .
It worked fine for a short while, but now win denies access to my data hdd. The icon is up but access is denied in win .
It may have happened after I used the hdd from linux .
This data-hdd is the heart of my workflow, and I need to store files from both systems on the same hdd.
Grateful for help.

I'm not sure what a hard drive cassette is.
Assuming it is a caddy with a hard drive in it?
If so, when you use Win10, you may have to shut it down completely rather than sleep/suspend/hibernate as it could lock the files.
Hopefully its as simple as that.
If not, then post back and will go through permissions etc.
