    "Read Only"/No permissions after Seagate Restore to Windows 10


    I would really appreciate some help if anyone is willing, or has encountered the same problem. Not particularly tech savy, just a 20-something wife/mom who can navigate around a PC pretty well.

    Background: I got a new laptop and had backed up my entire old laptop/hard drive with a Seagate external hard drive. I then plugged in my external to new said laptop, selected appropriate version, and hit restore. Hooray! I thought it was really just that easy. Everything went into correct folders, and appeared all contents were there.

    Issue:
    - Word documents open up as "Read-Only". I did find that if I went to each document individually, I could allow permissions under "Security" for all users...even though I am the one and only user and administrator on this PC. This seemed to fix the read only issue, but I was then unable to save anything, stating I did not have permission/hard drive was full (it's not full).
    - Further investigation found that my documents folders are all marked as "read only" under properties, and therefore I cannot edit or save to anything with in them. When I try to uncheck the box, I am given an error, saying that I need administrator permission, click continue, and then nothing happens.

    It appears that pretty much my whole Documents section is read only and I cannot edit or save to it (possibly other sections of the hard drive as well). I am not sure where the issue may lay: my old computer? seagate external hard drive? how I restored the files? windows 10? Permissions/administrators?

    Help!? *Smile

    :)

    Enter on keypad " no. + # "

    petrib is correct. It is a shortcut to SIM numbers.

    Numbers on your SIM might not be in the position you think. Just because they appear sorted in alphabetical order in the contacts list doesn't mean that they appear in that same order on the SIM. On the SIM they appear in the order in which you input them,
    unless you delete a number in which case the next one entered takes its place.
