  1. Secondary drive keep asking for permissions for any action I trying to make


    Hi all,


    Yesterday I was trying to install Avast antivirus into my Win 10 laptop. I located it in the secondary drive right under the root (D:\).

    After that, I deleted it and it wiped out all data in my secondary drive - but luckily I have back-ups.

    The problem is, whenever I try to perform any action on this drive (i.e. create folder, rename, etc.), it keeps asking me to confirm this operation. Even worse, I cannot edit my word files anymore, since I don't have permission for it - it forces me to create new file (Save as) every time I try to save it.


    I have looked it up and try to set the permission in the Security advance settings and also change the owner of this drive to the current user but it did not work and I am now desperate Secondary drive keep asking for permissions for any action I trying to make :(


    Hoping to receive your kindly opinions.

    Regards

    :)

  2. How did this get released before testing and why does it change all permissions without asking

    Hi,

    is the permission for the folders in your user profile shown as "read-only'?

    If this is the case, I would suggest you to try these steps and check if they help:

    • Open the properties of the main user profile folder where the files are located (such as Documents, Pictures, etc).
    • Go to the Security tab and click Advanced.
    • Check the box at the bottom of this window. It is labeled "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" and then click Ok.
    • This does a one-time action that replaces the security on all the files/subfolders. It’s one-time, so you won’t find that box checked if you peek at it later.
    Try these steps and let us know the results.

  3. No permissions

    Hi,

    I would suggest you to right click on the user's folder for your profile and check if the permissions shows as "read only'. If this is the case, it might be causing the issue. In this case, I would suggest you to go to C:\User folder, right click on the
    folder with your username and follow these steps:

    • Open the properties of the main user profile folder where the files are located (such as Documents, Pictures, etc).
    • Go to the Security tab and click Advanced.
    • Check the box at the bottom of this window. It is labeled "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" and then click Ok.
    This does a one-time action that replaces the security on all the files/subfolders. It’s one-time, so you won’t find that box checked if you peek at it later. Try these steps and let us know the results for further assistance.
