    Folder Authorisation Issue C Drive


    Hi all. I own a new laptop with a 256g SSD. 4 days ago I merged the 2 partitions with AOMEI software bc I did not like how it came (C drive was 90GB and D drive was 142 GB)

    Here it is a pic of my disk https://i.imgur.com/iUl804M.png

    Now I only have one drive of (222GB)

    Whenever I try so install or modify (e.g. delete) a folder on the Programs or Programs X86 folders It does not let me do it. I can still download programs without big problems, to an extent.

    To solve this problem do I need to format the pc? Do u think it will be a big issue in the long term if I do not format it right now? e.g. I installed Photoshop successfully today, but I could not choose the directory path for Programs C bc it could not let me install it there. I still installed it tho somehow.

    I changed C drive ownership but the problem persists. I tried to change authorizations for folders but I still have this issue at times.

    ps: most of the times it says I need "Administrators permission" in order to modify or delete folders and subfolders.

    Any solutions? Can I leave my pc like that atm and install again the OS in the future?

    Thanks.

    :)

    RM Folder in C-drive

    Hi,

    For us to isolate the issue, did you install/download anything prior to this folder showing up on your C: drive? We suggest that you first run a scan on the folder to check if there's any potential virus/malware.

    Looking forward to your response.
