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.
