There is a folder in G: drive named “TEST”.


Open command prompt and type G: to change directory to G drive.
 Now type cacls Personal /e /p everyone:n
 You will get a command- processed dir: E:TEST
 Now click on TEST folder.

Now you can’t open this folder, can’t delete/copy/move/rename.
If you click on continue.
