UAC preventing access to a restricted drive

    Hi, i hope this makes sense...

    - Dell latitude with Vista Business installed.
    - Hard drive partitioned into C and D drives.
    - Access to the D drive is restricted to members of the local administrator group.

    When I log onto the laptop as a member of the local administrator group I cannot access the D drive. I get an "access denied" error. However, if I turn off the UAC it allows me to access the drive. At no stage do I get the UAC elevation prompt.

    Is there a way of allowing only the users in the local administrator group to access the D drive without the UAC causing a problem?

    Many thanks,

    Are you assigning permissions to users individually or per usergroup?

    Also have you tried setting permissions on a root folder in D and seeing if that works?

    I'm not too familiar with Vista Business and I've never used UAC, which is a new user control feature added in Vista.

    I am assigning permissions to users based on a usergroup.
