Windows 10 odd permissions

884 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Warlord711
I upgraded to windows 10 and am having odd permission problems regarding a secondary hardrive.

I have followed the basic guidelines for editing permissions and do not need a novice walk through.

Within the old hardrive there is a folder on the "desktop" path

D:\Users\*****\Desktop\"bad folder"

This folder has many sub folders. I can access and edit the child folders and files within the directory:

D:\Users\*****\Desktop\"bad folder"\..........

However, files immediately within the "bad folder" it self require permissions to view edit or move.

Once again, only immediate files are inaccessible.

ex: Files in the path:
D:\Users\*****\Desktop\"bad folder"\folder1

are available.

All security settings for these folders are the same and give my administrator account I am using full control.

I have tried a third party grant full control program to no avail.

There are probably bad sectors where the Bad Folder resides on, not allowing you to access it. It will just say You do not have permission to....
Run Check Disk on the D: drive.
Go to Start/Search and type CMD, Right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type the drive letter of the drive (eg) D: and press enter if it is not already selected (eg) D:\> type chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y for Yes to Unmount the drive (that is if you are booted into C:, if booted into D: then restart the computer) Check Disk will run and go through 5 stages checking for bad sectors and finding orphaned files. This will take a long while.
