    C drive is messed up?


    I think I screwed up my C drive. I somehow deleted it, then copied it from a jump drive. It did say C/windows. Then I renamed it C:/drive. When I click on C drive I'm using the dark theme all programs listed on main page in center are grayed outcan't hardly read them. When I click on prog files, same thing, also with prog files86. I noticed when I right click on C drive, before I click on properties it shows format on the context menu. Is this right? I hope you can help me?

    Thanks,

    Ornerypoo

  2. Windows 10 c: drive not accessable

    I was trying to solve a problem I had with accessing several folders, following the steps on a web site, and

    I got a message that the owner of the C; drive was being erased!

    Since then I have no access to the c: drive, I keep getting "access denied", "you don't have the proper permissions", "you don't have read permission", and when I finally got into Safe Mode and clicked on C:/properties/security, it said "Owner: Unable to
    display current owner".

    I've tried more methods than I want to list trying to get ownership of the C: drive and set permissions back where they belong.

    Where is the c: drive owner entered? Would I need to RegEdit? If so, please provide step by step because all I know about RegEdit is that it's dangerous to mess with.....

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
