    Manually created folders on C drive are read-only


    I was just creating a folder on my C drive (SSD) when I noticed that the attribute is set to read-only. I've tried clearing the attribute many ways using the link below but to no avail. Right-clicking on the folder does not show the option to Take Ownership. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to correct it?


    Remove read-only attribute from folder - Windows 8.1 - Super User

    Have you checked this thread? Document folders marked read only after upgrade to Windows 10

    Also what is the location of these Read Only folders? As suggested by Robert, try creating new folder in Music folder or on drive other than C if you have partitions. (assuming your OS is on C drive)

    Random folders in my C: drive are being created

    hi - I think its related to the SCCM Client

    please have a read of this article:

    sandbox folders in 10049

    in a nutshell, you may need to uninstall SCCM:

    Check with IT Staff if you run CCM first:

    1. from an elevated cmd prompt.

    Run: C:\Windows\ccmsetup\ccmsetup.exe /uninstall

    2. Delete: C:\Windows\ccmsetup\

    3. Delete all of the folders with the long names\ sandbox that have been generated.

    4. Check to see if the folders come back. If so check to see if c:\windows\ccmsetup is back. If so talk to your administrator

    Manually created folders on C drive are read-only

    Read Only is the normal attribute for a folder. Weird but true. It is mostly ignored by Windows and does not make the folder read only. Check all your folders.
