    No Access to a partition of my external HD
    First time poster here but long time forum viewer here.
    Ive been looking around for an answer to this problem but have been unsuccessful for about 5 days now.

    I bought an external HD and partitioned into 2 partitions, HD Storage & HD Backup. I was trying to make the HD backup partition non accessible by changing the permissions, but I think I made it non-accessible to ALL the users by accident.

    Now I can't find the partition anywhere which inturn means I cant change any permissions for it?

    If anyone could shed a bit of light on this matter, any help would be much appreciated.
