  1. I have an external WD hard drive, I accidently removed the network file and folder sharing componet. Now when I go to access my hard drive it tells me that access is denied. I dont want to lose the data. Is there a way to restore this opion and gain access? PLease help. I oringially was trying to limit access to this hard drive.
