    Windows 10 Pictures Folder Permission Issues


    I have noticed that after every reboot the permissions of the Pictures folder revert to a read/execute status for "Home Users," and although my log in status has Admin credentials, I cannot save to the folder without a prompt. Plus if my Lightroom catalog is in there I can't open it. Once I manually change the permissions to Full Control, it works fine, but reverts back to the read/execute status at each reboot.

    Others have reported similar behavior, and while we thought it related to iCloud for Windows, even after removing that the problem persists.

    I did a right click on the Pictures folder, and in "sharing" selected "not shared," after which in properties I no longer see "Home Users" listed. So it works fine until the reboot when it reappears.

    I am not using the system's built-in Administrator account, just my own account with Admin rights.

    The OS is an upgrade from Win7 Pro(64-bit) to Win10 Pro (64-bit)

    What doe s the rest of the group have in the way of comments? Thanks.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 uninstall issues

    After Windows 10 uninstall, issues with my Windows 7.



    After windows 10 was uninstalled I tried to add photos to my Picture Folder

    in Libraries. Received the message that folder was unavailable. Checked all the other folders in Libraries and same message: This folder is unavailable.



    “C;\Users\User\Pictures\screen shot Pictures folder Untitled.jpg

    You don’t have permission to save in this location.

    Contact the administrator to obtain permission.

    Would you like to save in the My Pictures folder instead?”



    When I click on yes I get the same error message.



    Please note My Pictures all used to be in the Pictures folder.

    Same thing happened when trying to add documents to documents and music to music folder, etc.



    How do I make those folders ‘available’?

    Windows 10 OneDrive Resetting File Permissions

    After upgrading to Windows 10, I've noticed that OneDrive starts itself, even though I've unticked the startup box, and then resets permissions on my Pictures folder so that I can't save anything to it because I don't have "permission". I'm not even listed
    as a user on the folder. I have an administrator account, and have full permission. The administrator account also still has full permissions, and that's the confusing part. Others seem to be having this same permission issue.

    I have a Windows Phone that also has OneDrive, so I'm wondering if there's an issue there. Today my PC was trying to sync 4 new pictures I took with my phone camera, and OneDrive was "hung" doing so, and this is when I noticed the file permission issue again.
    I'm ready to revert back to Windows 7...
