  2. WindowsApps folder on other drives/partitions other than C:\

    I just discovered that attempting to take ownership of the WindowsApps folder on any drive but C:\ isn't working correctly.

    If you process this on C:\Program Files\WindowsApps, it works just fine. But any other drive letter; IE E:\WindowsApps, it will display that you have taken ownership, but you cannot access the folder.

    A little bit more digging, after processing ownership, you CAN access it under safe mode and make further edits to the folder permissions, but if you go back into a normal boot, you cannot access the folder.

    I understand that these folders have these settings for a reason, but if we are allowed to take ownership, we should then be able to access them.

  3. RETRIEVE FILES FROM WINDOWSAPP EXTERNAL DRIVE

    Is the folder named windowsapp or windowsapps?

    Try
    taking ownership
    of it, copy your files out and get rid of the folder because it shouldn't be on your external hard drive without your permission.

    To be on the safe side also scan your system and the drive for malware.
