i had been having issues with inability to safley remove an external drive as well as random phantom data accesses that didn't show up on any log. i tried somthing drastic i set the system account's ntfs permisions to deny all access to the drive while only allowing my user account to access the disk with full controll. it seemes to have fixed the problem but i want to know if there are any long term consequences to doing this. the drive is a 1.5tb external disk that has no operating system or boot information all it is is data storage.
