    Windows 10 Folder Permissions


    Just incase you run into an issue with folder permission, were windows does not allow the transfer of files or folders from one drive to another.
    Solved:
    Right click on folder (or file)>Properties> select the security tab>To change permissions click edit>Add>Enter the object names: type 'all'>click ok> then under 'Allow' tick 'full control'> Apply>ok>ok to close the box.

    You can do the same for an external HDD if problems occur when connecting the drive to a new pc. Right click the drive via 'This PC' and follow the above instructions.

    I hope this helps. *Smile

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    How is the NAS on windows 10 Pro? Is it software or a share? Did you check ntfs vs share permissions?

    Windows 10 Folder Permissions

    Windows 10 permissions...

    Ok so I feel officially dumb I am trying to copy my steam library to my NAS. Both are on windows 10 pro and both have full control in the file manager. Neither windows nor fast copy will allow me to copy, both list a permissions error? This was never an issue with windows 7...so first off thank you microsoft god forbid I want to back up my data, second off what the heck do I need to do to make this work. All I could fine online was to set full control and that obviously didn't help.

    Also robocopy doesn't apparently work with network locations?
