Windows 10: Read Permissions Solved

  1.    14 Mar 2018 #1

    Read Permissions


    I moved My Documents to my D: drive. I did this by going to My Documents Properties, then the Location tab, then entered the new location and clicked Move.

    It worked great for a while; quite a while. Then all the sudden, when I would do a Save As, give it a name, click save and it'd say "File not found." No kidding; I'm trying to save it. But it wouldn't work. The problem remains at this point only when trying to save PDFs.

    Also, it's screwed up the sync process on my Office 2013. Now, I like 2013, I don't wanna upgrade and I'm not sure it would matter. It usually says something about me not having permission to write to the file (in My Docs).

    All this saving and OneNote stuff is happening on the D: drive. I can do a Save As to the C drive just fine. For the D drive, I've run CHKDSK and BelArc Advisor to check the S.M.A.R.T file and all is Healthy.

    I'm thinking about moving My Documents back to the C drive, but that would be a lotta trouble. And I need to utilized the D drive (C and D are both 500GB SSDs).

    I'm outta tricks and I've been all over Google. Does anybody have any ideas?

    Is this a external or internal drive? Internal I would set it up with the two drives in a RAID. External can have issues when trying to connect and it times out.

    If you have Fall Creators Update (1709) then one cause for this can be that a) you have Controlled Folder Access turned on in Defender and b) you are saving from a third-party app. The solution is either to grant that app access (preferred solution) or to turn off Controlled Folder Access. See this tutorial.
