I am trying to access my 8GB USB drive at work, but it gives an error that says "access is denied", I know that they have resticted access at work. Is there anyway I can break into this from my local machine? weird thing is that my account is under the administrators group. Any suggestions?

I doubt the site owners want us to help you hack your employers systems. In short, the restrictions are there for a reason. Contact your internal support people or follow the rules.
Reasons that you might be restricted:
Well my enterprise follows the same. But there is an official escape to this. In my enterprise we have to contact the administrator and convince him for the data transfer. Yes it requires an official permission to do so but a genuine reason will not restrict him to transfer the data.
I will not suggest you to break your computer to transfer your stuff, if something goes wrong you have to pay huge price for maybe insignificant data which you have transfered.
Try to convince the admin and setup some kind of authorized stations from where you can transfer you data in or out.
