    Destination Folder Access Denied - You need permission to perform this

    Hi group. Working with Windows 10. I have a WD MyCloud Hard drive on my network.

    I am able to view all of the folders and files on my MyCloud but I cannot create new folders in it and I cannot drag and drop files to the hard drive or rename files because is giving the "Destination Folder Access Denied - You need permission to perform this Action" error window.

    I have googled this issue and tried several youtube tutorials to fix this but it will deny permission to change the credentials.

    So now I turn to you, the experts for help. Please walk me through this. I spent an hour on the phone with WD MyCloud technical to find that the problem is a windows problem and not the MyCloud.

    I have 2 WDC 2TB NAS drives connected by Ethernet cable to my Router and usually can't copy to the root of the drives but no issues using a Public Folder on them and Mapping that Folder on my other computers both wired and wireless.

    Thank you Berton,
    if it's not too much trouble, could you please walk me through exactly how to map my drive? I watched a tutorial video about it and tried it, it created "Z:" for my mycloud, but did not do anything for solving the problem. Maybe I was doing it wrong.
