  1. File properties in folders not showing special letter


    Hi,

    Whenever I try to change a file properties to one with special letters it's automatically changes the letter to '?'.

    For exaple: If I have a .mp3 sonf file and I go to the file's properties-> Details. And in the Title I want to change to name to "Mañana" ('tomorrow' in Spanish), I click OK and then go to the properties again and it says: "Ma?ana".

    How can I change it so that these kind of special letters will remain and not change to the question mark?

    Thanks.

    :)

    You don't currently have permission to access this folder - Win 10

    Trying to open a drive letter labelled System in Windows 10. But all system files are on a different drive. This message is shown: Says "Click continue to permanently get access to this folder."

    Clicking continue shows new message: "You have been denied permission to access this folder. To gain access to this folder you will need to use the security tab (highlighted.)"

    Clicking "Security tab" brings up "Advanced Sharing" box.

    Right clicking the drive letter & properties does not show a security tab. Only General, Customize, Tools, Hardware & Sharing. Nothing that would obviously change the security settings to allow access.

    What am I missing?

  3. Properties shows wrong size for files and folder

    I went through both methods (thanks alot for the help BTW) and retested the same pictures drive again, with both methods again

    Method 1 - right clicking on the folder...selecting properties, and reading the size on disk it reports

    Method 2 - opening up the folder, clicking inside the search bar and selecting *.* which shows every file and folder inside + all subdirectories. Confirmed theres no "grouping" its all just listed together. Select all files (control A) then right click and
    select properties...and reading the size on disk it reports

    Same results Im afraid. I retested another folder on a physically different hard drive using the same test - and also came up with ridiculously contradicting claims on how much data is in there

    Interesting hey Test 1 = 142Gig VS 386Gig

    Test 2 on a seperate HDD (physically seperate drive) 669Gig VS 184Gig
