    So we need more info:

    - "My dedicated 6TB backup drive" - is this internal disk/array, external usb/esata, SAN/iscsi storage? Suppose only the first problematic disk, perhaps y:
    - "My other system has no such problems with it." - do you mean parallel/dualboot install of Windows, Windows on other computer, Windows PRE (Macrium Reflect), Linux in dualboot/different computer/live? Which version & build/distro? Osloader GRUB or BCD?
    - Are some related errors/warnings in Event Viewer?

    Furthermore, run the following commands at elevated (admin) prompt:

    chkdsk /f y:

    list disk
    sele disk m
    deta disk
    list part
    sele part n
    deta part
    list volu
    sele volu o
    deta volu

    where m, n, o are numbers of affected physical disk, partition on disk, and volume.

    Paste the whole output here.

    All of my drives are internal.
    It started with Y but every other day when I reboot the system, a new one joins. As a result, now I have three drives that allow only read access and apparently, I also have right to change the 'owner', which doesn't do any good!
    I have two system drives (dual boot) One my workstation system to be; offline (No UAC) which has no permissions problem with any of the drives. And this one, online, with UAC and with the permissions disease...

    No errors except corrupted Recycler Bin for drive Y. And Because it doesn't let me delete anything, consequently, I can not fix that particular little problem...
    I already did the chckdsk on Y. It found nothing...
    I also did scannow and that also didn't bring any errors...As the previous request failed, I don't see how "chkdsk /f y:" would have been allowed?I don't have sufficient privilages... :/

    Thank you

    Thanks for the info but I really need the whole text output (copy & paste) of chkdsk & diskpart commands taken from affected system.

    Thank you...
    But this is how it is:

    My door lock is broken! I can't get in. I also forgot my key inside!...
    You are helping me out to fix the door... but you need the key to do it!
    That is the dilemma here :)

    I think it is time to wrap up this episode of 'Here goes another Windows to dump!'

    A fresh plate to serve nasty!

    See you guys with fresh problems...

    Thank you for your efforts, your time and good spirit...
