    You'll need to provide administrator permission...


    Suddenly my Windows 10 (vs 21H2 OS Build 19044.2965) started to display this annoying popup every time I try to delete, move or copy files to/from disks.

    You'll need to provide administrator permission...-annoying.jpg

    Then I just click "continue" and it does whatever I want it to do. It only happens in non-removable units though (in USB ones it won't happen).

    How do I get rid of it?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately it didn't work for me. I tried to apply it to my drive E: and followed your instructions step by step but when I get to the 1:39 of your video this is what happened:

    Any ideas?

    Where did the folder 02 - Remasters come from? Copied from another computer?
    What is its full path?

    What permissions are shown for the folder when you:-
    Right-click on it,
    Properties,
    Security,
    Advanced.

    It came from the same drive, just from another place. Actually I just removed it because I was organizing my folders at the time I took the screenshot. But it doesn't matter because the problem replicates in ANY folder of my drive E.

    In any case the full path would be like E:\MÚSICAS\Jethro Tull Discography\02 - Remasters

    As I mentioned before, EVERY folder in my drive E is behaving this same way... this is for properties for the top folder (that is doing the same)...

    You'll need to provide administrator permission...-readonly.jpg

    And it for Properties, Security, Advanced...

    It was totally normal and became like this since a couple days ago out of the blue.

    Select that [most unusual] line Special, click on View and post a screenshot.

    So you want all users to be able to delete the folder[s] affected without asking for Admin permission?

    Well, yeah, this and move, copy, rename, etc. And actually "all users" are just myself. LoL. I am the only one to use this computer as this is my personal PC at my home office.

    I suggest you add another line for your own user account or for Users in general to give you/them Full control for This folder, subfolders and files.
    - Adding is just a bit safer than altering an existing entry because a mistake can only give additional permissions instead of accidentally removing any.

    Here are the permissions for a fairly typical folder of mine.

    - You'll see that Me {i.e. my day to day user account} appears in the list of entries. But your does not, perhaps you blanked it out for privacy just as I smudged mine.
    - You'll also notice that Me has permissions for This folder only [and so does every single one of its sub-folders without any problems being caused]. It is common to find surprising entries in the list.

    I think I have seen other people report permissions problems after Windows updates. Was that when your problems started?

    Version 21H2 goes out of support on the 13th of June 2023.

    You are trying to delete system file to delete it you will have to do it from System Properties. Pagefile.sys is a system file in Windows set aside for your computer’s Random Access Memory (RAM), also known as physical memory. When your computer's RAM begins to run out of memory, it uses the pagefile to offload data it doesn't need, such as files and apps.

    From Start Menu search box, type sysdm.cpl in the search box and hit the Enter key to open the System Properties window.

    Select the Advanced tab, and in the Performance section, click the Settings button.

    In the Performance Options window, select the Advanced tab and click Change.

    In the Virtual Memory window, uncheck the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives checkbox at the top.

    Click on the radio button for No paging file, and click the Set button on the right.

    Restart your Windows computer for the changes to take effect.

    For some reason it seems that my Windows won't let me to add one. It's all greyed out. Or I am not knowing how to do it.
