    Security settings for external esata / usb drive


    Hello,

    Recently upgraded to a Windows 10 PC, I also have another nearly identical Windows 10 PC plus three other PC running earlier versions of Windows.

    I have a 1TB external SATA drive (accessing from an eSata and USB connection) that I need to access from all my PC's (including a Linux installation)

    The problem I keep running into with the 1TB external drive is I'm constantly running into access denied errors for certain files and folders.

    error: "Failed to enumerate objects in the container. Access is denied"

    The problem I think is because the external drive has permissions from when used with other PCs running other versions of Windows.

    So recently I took ownership of the drive from my currently booted Windows 10 PC. However I have another Windows 10 PC plus other 3 other PCs running earlier versions of windows that need to also have access the external drive.

    Under properties of the root of the drive, Security > Advanced > Ownership has permission entries with Full Access Control for Assistance ops, Everyone, SYSTEM, Current pc, 5 x accounts unknown, Administrator & Administrators

    I haven't checked the entire drive but it appears I now have access to the external drive's files and folders from my currently booted Windows 10 PC.

    However in the past after taking ownership from one PCs there were access denied errors for certain files and folder while booted to a different Windows PC.

    So when booted to another PC often required to take ownership from that PC in order to have access certain files and folders.

    I haven't tried booting to anther PC recently. From past experience I assume the access denied problem will likely occur again when booting to another PC.

    I'm wondering if there's a method to setup the external drive's security settings and ownership so I'm not require to keep changing ownership and/or security settings to access files and folders of the external drive?

    I need full access to all the files and folder no matter which Windows PC I'm accessing the external drive from.

    :)

    USB eSata External Stick!

    You can do that with any external drive. It doesn't matter esata, USB, fw, tb etc. People have known about this for a long time. In fact servers come with an internal USB a header for this exact reason... Welcome to 2005.

  3. External Hard Drive not seen when connecting by eSata to USB 3 cable


    I have a 1TB external hard drive (Medion HDDrive 2 GO) from 2010 that came with a Medion PC from Aldi which my family still use. It is equiped with an eSata connection and a USB2 connection. Both these work fine on the old Medion PC running Windows 10 Home 32bit. The eSata connection is much faster speed and I have a eSata to USB3 adaptor cable which works fine on the Medion PC.
    I want to use this external drive of a newer PC that only has USB 2 and 3 connections. It works fine plugged into both USB2 and USB3 with the standard USB to USB cable.
    But plugging the eSata to USB3 cable in nothing happens.
    I have tried to see if I can get a driver from Medion but the unit is not listed on their web site.
    Also have tried to see if I can get a driver on the internet and did install one that looked hopeful but did not help.
    Attached are images of the showing the drivers in use on the Medion PC (Windows 10 Home 32 bit) when connected by USB to USB cable and eSata to USB cable.
    Also attached is image of driver in use on newer PC (Windows 10 Pro 64 bit) when connected by USB to USB cable.

    Older Medion PC says when connected with eSata to USB cable that External Hard Drive is a ASMT 2115 USB device - disk drive (driver Microsoft 10.0.14393.0 21/06/2006)
    and when connected by USB to USB cable as Hitachi HDS721010CLA332 USB drive (driver Microsoft 10.0.14393.0 21/06/2006).

    On newer PC (Win 10 Pro 64 bit) when connected by USB to USB cable it says Hitachi HDS721010CLA332 USB drive (driver Microsoft 10.0.14393.1613 21/06/2006).

    Any suggestions on how to get the eSata to USB3 cable connection for this externasl hard drive to work on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit PC?
    Would it be possible to copy some how driver from older PC to new PC?

    Many thanks for any advice.

    External Hard Drive not seen when connecting by eSata to USB 3 cable


    Hi Chillbast2017.

    Try this:

    Connect your External Hard Drive eSata to USB3 to new pc.
    Open Computer Management, then Disk Management and at the bottom search for your 1 TB external hard drive, if you can see it there, right click mouse on it, then click on Change Drive Letter and Paths, click on Add, choose Assign the Following Drive Letter, choose the letter on your right and click ok. Close Computer Management. See if it worked. I had the same problem with an old HD on Windows 10 x64, windows didn't recognize the hard drive connected with eSata cable to USB 2 or 3, and this did the trick.

    Cheers
