    Hi,


    I've newly installed W10 Pro and am constantly being pestered with permission nags (see attached) while attempting to reorganise files within the Local Disk.

    I've tried changing the User permissions via "Properties>Security" but encounter nothing but a load of error messages.

    Does anyone know how to fix this? I upgraded from Windows 7, bypassing 8 entirely so I've never had to tackle this issue before. I'd like full access without annoying UAC-related notifications every two minutes!


    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    how to move documents pictures etc folders from C: OS ssd to D: data hdd

    LOL, Seriously, Cyber Team needed???????

    I am sorry, but isn't move them one time, the same as change where they will be stored from now on. ???????

    Change storage location or move to another location, One needs Cyber Security for cut and paste and the other needs only to go to Settings>>System>>>Storage for SSD storage transfer to HDD?????

    You can copy or move a whole 2TB or much bigger drive size of info/data all at once if you want to.

    Thanks for the speedy reply.

    I ran the reg key and selected "Take Ownership" on the C: drive right-click menu. No change, I'm still getting permission nags. *Mad

    It's also worth mentioning that I backed-up the registry before performing that edit, and now that I've went to restore it, I'm receiving the following error:

    I wonder if this is related also... Yet another nag with regards to user privileges. *Huh

    I doubt very much that would correct the problem. Any restore point I roll back to will be the same as far as user permissions go. I need to discover how to unlock the restrictions on my user account.

    I have this problem as well! the only way around the read/write issues that I have found so far is to copy the files I want to use to an external drive.

    I hope this helps a little.

    Glad it's not just me then!

    I'm sure I remember a similar nag on the C: drive with Windows 8 also... One that I managed to fix if memory serves... I only tested 8 very briefly when it was released then rolled back to 7 and lived happily ever after. *chuckle

    Something tells me it's done by changing the user permissions in C:>Properties>Security but I'm reluctant to start messing with those without a proper tutorial. I've had to do a clean install in the past before due to doing exactly that!

    Surely some of the seasoned gurus on here will know the fix for this!

    I hope so! it is making life very difficult and impractical. I guess that's what you get for being too keen to try it out.

    I wish that there was a button on my task bar that says "get me outta here!" *Shock

    I have managed to get around this now in a couple of ways:

    firstly I tried changing setting in the regeditor (not recommended) but I wanted to see if it would work. It did, I turned off the UAC. I turned the UAC back on and the tried changing the security properties for the folder where my works files are stored. Although I am the admin I needed to change the security setting. I changed the user to system then allowed all permissions. Seems to be working now!

    Nice. *Cool

    Can you perhaps provide a brief summary of the steps taken in order to accomplish this?

    Thanks!
