    WindowsApps on D:\ Drive - Access Denied

    Finally in version 10565 you are able to move/install Apps to other location than C:\Program Files\WindowsApps
    To change permissions for C:\Program Files\WindowsApps to be able to see what was inside the folder was easy however to do the same on D:\WindowsApps seems to be impossible.
    Tried to change permission / ownership but still no luck.
    Have hooked up the HDD to another PC and deleted the folder.
    After restarting Windows 10 the folder is gone, however when I try to make a new folder WindowsApps I am told that it can not be created as it already exists!!!???. But how?

    Any comment appreciated

    MAC OSX ML, Mavericks, Yosemite

    Having the same problem. When I try to change owner of directory it does not work. "Can not establish owner..."
    After deleting the directory (Only possible with USB/WinPE) Rebooting into Windows 10 and trying to make new
    directory fails. Folder already exist! However can't be found even when hidden folders are shown.

    Why make all these things so difficult! Soon I will give up on Windows 10 and stay with my Windows 7 (and MAC)
