    windows 10

    Read Only Error!


    Hi,

    im a hardcore Wow player, recently i encountered a problem that wont let me play wow due to my folders not able to being write wow files on my windows 7.

    the was a message when ever i tried to run wow and that was "[COLOR=#EFC9A0][FONT=Arial]The CAS system was unable to initialize: Client Handler: initialization error: failed to create storage component"


    At first i thought it was wow's problem and looked on battle.net forums but they all said that i must remove read only tag from properties of my wow folder.

    i did everything i could on wow's side but nothing, then i tried looking on various windows's error forums and did the take ownership cerficate guide, the attrib -r [path] guide, changing security parameters from properties --> security ---> edit etc.

    but nothing worked, as soon as i unchecked the solid square read only option and closed it , it came back like before.

    so i thought maybe windows 7 wont let me play the game, i bought windows 10 and installed it clean and removed windows 7 completely. and with no surprise the same problem persists. cant remove read only.

    then i read about NTFS being the problem, i have 2 sata harddisks and i formatted one and converted it to FAT system and copied wow folder to that drive. still it wont do anything same problem is there.

    cant figure out what to do please help!!

    found this although you may have already tried it

    Delete WoW cache folder
    Set battle.net to run as admin
    Close Battle.net app
    Create a new folder in C:/ called Games
    Move existing Wow folder from Program files to the Games folder
    Start Battle.net and locate the game
    Once located run the game
