This update resolves the "Non-Administrative User Cannot Access Removable Media After NTFS Format" issue in Windows 2000 and is discussed in Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) Article Q269013. Download now to ensure that Windows 2000 sets the appropriate Access Control Lists (ACLs) for the NTFS file system. When a user formats a disk in a removable hard drive with the NTFS file system, and the computer has the "allowed to eject removable NTFS media" group policy applied, Windows 2000 does not set the appropriate ACLs to grant non-administrative users access to the disk. As a result, a non-administrative user may be denied access to removable media (such as an Iomega Jaz disk, or other removable hard drives). A non-administrative user who formats the drive will not have authority to change the inappropriate ACLs, and will be denied access to the disk.
