  1. Unable to create files directly on D:/ drive


    Hello,I'm running a custom built PC and my current D: drive used to have windows installed on it, but we moved the windows installation to my current C drive on a re-install. Because of the previous installation, I can create folders on my D drive but cannot create or place files directly on the drive, which I would like to be able to do. I have already deleted any trace of the old windows installation, and I would just like file access again. The error I get when I try to create a file is"Error 0x80070522: A required privilege is not held by the client."If anyone can help me with a solution t

  2. D drive

    Hi,

    Based on the details you have provided us, it appears that there might be some corrupted contents on the said partition. We can also consider that this is caused by a virus.

    For us to check if a certain virus is hiding your files, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Type Command prompt in the search bar.
    • Type-in the following command:

      attrib -h -r -s /s /d D:\*.*
    • Press Enter to execute the command.

    If you think that there is nothing important stored in it, then we suggest that you reformat your D drive so that you can use the free space for important files.

    You can follow the steps below to start with the process:

    • Click on the File Explorer.
    • Select This PC.
    • Right-click on your D drive, then click on Format.
    • Follow the on-screen process to finish formatting the partition.

    Let us know how it goes so that we can further assist you.

    Unable to execute a file from D: drive

    Hello Experts

    I am facing an issue, and need your help to figure out what is going wrong.

    On my Windows 2016 Server 64 bit, I am unable to execute any ".exe" file from the D: drive.

    I am getting the following error while doing so (In this example, I am trying to install chrome, however I saved the ChomeSetup.exe file on my D: drive)

    I am an Admin, and I have tried the following steps till now.

    1) Verify that I am an Admin

    2) Take ownership of the D: drive (by opening CMD as "Run as Administrator"

    C:\Windows\system32>takeown /f D: /R

    3) Provided full control to the D:ChromeSetup.exe file in the file's properties>security tab

    4) Disabled the UAC

    5) Tried executing D:\ChromeSetup.exe by right clicking and "Run As Administrator"

    Unfortunately, even after carrying out above steps - I am still getting the error as per the snapshot. I have read all the posts by other users who were facing this error, and tried everything that was suggested by Microsoft MVP, and I am still getting the
    error.

    Thanks

    Unable to create files directly on D:/ drive

    D drive

    Since the game is being downloaded to the temporary files of the drive C, it may create conflict when you install the downloaded game from temporary file C to drive D. We suggest to set-up your steam to download the game directly to drive D and check if
    you will get the same error message when you install it.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide you further assistance.
