  1. Windows Update writing to drives I did Not give Microsoft permission to write to!!!


    I just noticed something Really Odd. I have a folder on my D drive called " Windows10Upgrade" It has a file called "18363.418.191007-0143.19h2_release_svc_refresh_CLIENTCONSUMER_RET_x64FRE_en-us.esd_" When I look this up it seems that this is some leftover file from an upgrade attempt - The Problem is it's on D drive which is a separate physical hard drive I use for storage. I never gave Microsoft Permission to write ANYTHING to that hard drive. Why is is doing that can can I remove it, and Lock off this drive so Microsoft doesn't violate me in the future? I feel like I was Raped!

    :)

  2. Write permission

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    If you don’t have permission for any folder follow the below steps to give permissions:

    Let’s give permission to the folder and check if that helps. Follow these steps to give permissions to the drive.

    • Right-click on the folder which you’re unable to access and select Properties.
    • Click on ‘Security’ tab and under ‘Group or user names’ click on ‘Edit’.
    • Click on ‘Add’ and type ‘everyone’.
    • Click on ‘Check names’ and then click ‘OK’.
    • Select ‘everyone’ and under ‘Allow’ select
      ‘Full control’
      and click on ‘Apply’ and Click ‘Ok’.
    Hope this information help and let us know the status of the issue we will be glad to help you further.

    How To Format A Write Protected Flash Memory ?

    ¿You already tried this one?...

    Run CMD


    1. diskpart
    2. list disk

    Then in the 3º step, put the correct number of disk in the list for the usb flash (if it's listed in disk 3, then you'll have to write select disk 3).

    2. select disk #
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    with that commands you will format the flash drive in fat32, if you have a large drive you can select also "format fs=ntfs" in step 7.

    good luck!
