I have a list of 13 folders (from different drives) in the Ransomware "Protected Folders" feature.

Although the feature can be disabled completely, while enabled I can only remove 2 of the "Protected Folders" on the list.

I cannot remove/delete the others.

I tried disabling/enabling the feature from Settings and Group Policy options, and cannot do it. I also cannot find a way to remove the "Protected Folders" using regedit.

When I changed one of the drive letters, the original letter remained in "Protected Folders," and the drive with the new letter assigned was not "protected."

I wonder if this is a bug, or is something else keeping me from removing a folder listed in the "Protected Folders" once it is added.

But, if so, why some of the folders listed can be removed while others cannot?

Many thanks in advance,
Peter Bond
