    After Ann. Update I no longer have permission to access files, games..


    After updating to the Anniversary Update I no longer have access to my photos, game files, etc. They are located on the same drive (C:\) as WIN 10. Here is the mssg in the window that pops up:

    "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

    Any ideas as to what happened? This is really aggravating....

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Hi Jeffrey,

    I would be happy to assist you. I regret the inconvenience you are facing with windows 10.

    Before proceeding further, I would like to know the information below.


    • Is the computer connected to Home group/ VPN network domain?

    • Who is the administrator of the computer?

    The error message occurs when you do not have an access to the files and folders connect to a network.

    I suggest you to refer to the link below, and check if it helps.

    Partitions may be missing after installing the Anniversary Update

    Hope this helps. Please try these methods and let us know the status. Feel free to write us back in case you face any issue with windows in future.

    Thank you.

    All my files are on the same SSD (C:\ ) as the OS (WIN 10).

    Here is the window that pops up when I try to access them:

    "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have apprpriate permissions to access the item".

    WTH, M$? What have you done to my desktop and all my files?

    I look forward to your response,

    Jeff
