  1. Permissions on usb drive


    HI all,
    I'm tired and I've fiddled with installing an executable on a usb flash drive.
    1. I've given permissions to "Everyone" to read/write/execute on this flash drive.
    2. I downloaded the regedit file from Shawn - no go.

    I'm on Windows 10, update 1903. The USB is a SANDISK 128GB. I did check the drivers for updates, it's updated.

    I'm trying to install A LINUX distro, which is 8gb, so I'm pretty sure the USB will get formatted, but I can't even effin' format the USB.
    I'm admin and I'm slowly dying a grueling death.

    Thanks for any help.

    :)

  2. USB Drive Access Permission

    Let's try a different approach. Since the updating the driver does not work, see if changing the Security settings on one of the USB drive. Follow the steps below:

    • Right-click the USB's drive on File Explorer and select Properties.
    • Click the Security tab.
    • Select an Owner/User and click Edit.
    • Check all the options on the Allowed column, select OK and then Apply.

    Update us on the result.

  3. Permission issue, shared drive Windows 10.

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We can understand your concern. However, we would need some more information regarding the issue.

    1. May I know the exact error message?
    2. Have you shared all hard drives or any particular folder within the particular hard drive?

    Since you have mentioned that you are getting error related to permission issue, please refer to the troubleshooting steps provided by “Azee N” dated June 2nd 2010 on
    Providing permission to drive and try
    providing permission to the drive.

    If the issue still persists, we would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to re-map the drive.

    1. Disconnect the drive by right click on the drive and select disconnect (if the drive is mapped).
    2. Then re-map the drive by referring to Map a network drive
      and check if it resolves the issue.

    Regards,

    Permissions on usb drive

    help. USB drive isn't assigned a drive letter.

    Any usb flash drive I plug into my computer isn't assigned a drive letter. The physical drive shows in the "safely remove hardware" but it doesnt show up in disk management. I have tried to populate the volume thru the safely remove hardware properties window and it does pop up in the list but it doesn't stay there. This isn't a format or assign a letter problem. It's more complicated then that. Maybe one of the services needed for usb drive management was disabled? Suggestions needed. btw external usb harddrives work fine.
