How to get Access to windows Apps folder on the secondary drive ?
You are about to read some bad English. and I am really sorry about it. I am not a native English speaker.
Hey Guys, Good Evening
I am having some problems
I want to know that how can I get access to windows apps folder after moving it to D drive
I have tried everything there is but I still can't get access to it
I can only access the drive if I am using the hidden administrative account and even on hidden administrative account I can only see those files I can't do anything to the files for example if I want to edit or replace those files I can't do it...The error will popup and say Access Denied this happening on hidden administrative account What should I do
and IF I want to delete those files this error comes up
Error 0x80090005 Bad Data (never even heard nor even read anything about it)
Hello, I don't think I could manage a description like that in another language, so well done.
Do you mean this? and how did you move the folder originally?

Yup I did it like this but after doing this I can't get access to windows apps folder on my other drive ...I have tried everything (change the permissions, Going to the hidden administrator mode, etc )
But I still can't get access to it
Do you have any suggestions to solve my problem
Hello, I don't yet know what's going on, so can't make a suggestion. I can open that folder in its default location
with no problem:
I can't get access to windows apps folder on my other driveWhich is the 'other drive'? C or D?Are you trying to access the original apps folder on C: after having moved it?
Can you please post a screenshot of what you see,
both there (put %LocalAppData%\Packages in the explorer address field)
and of the folder you believe should contain your universal apps on D?
Now, if I right click on that folder in explorer, properties, security I see
System Allow (all except special permissions) Deny none
Me The same
Administrators The same
What do you see?
And why would you get an error message about creating a folder?
By changing the permissions and trying to delete apps like that you're more likely to create problems than fix them.
same problem with me. I change it to Local Disc D too but it changes automatically again Local Disc C and created WindowsApps folder in D and cant access or delete..
Hi, here are two ways to delete such items by not using Windows.
(and of course you could read/copy the files and folders if you wish)
1. Delete it from a command prompt outside Windows.
You will need some familiarity with commands to do this.
Shift + hover over Restart, left click. Boot to a command prompt. Navigate (carefully) to the correct drive, noting the drive letters will be different viewed here. Navigate to your folder. Delete it.
2. Boot your PC from a live boot disk

Navigate to your folder and delete it
I probably won't be much helpful, but I think applications in the WindowsApps folder are EFS-encrypted, which may explain the bad data error you got. I personally can't move the WindowsApps folder to a secondary place, and I think it's because I prevented the filecrypt filesystem minifilter driver to start, as it was posing some problems not relevant here. I suppose this driver is used to encrypt/decrypt data transparently in kernel space, and is essential to EFS.
I knew it the main problem is encryption so can't we just remove this encryption ...or is there is anyway to modify it
I set the Storage option for Windows Store to start installing apps too my D:/
Because of that, it created a folder called WindowsApps.
Now it's time that I want to delete that folder, and all access is denied.
I tried changing the permissions...
I have an SSD (This PC) for Windows, HDD (secondary disk) for files and whatnot. Running Windows 10 64-bit Home.
I saw that you could move apps to another disk through Apps & features in Settings, so I decided to try it out.

Bit of a problem.

Unable to delete folder, unable to change permissions, and unable to get One Drive to read to Documents folder correctly. I have attempted five times and each time it fails. So I try to delete the One Drive folder so I can reboot and try again,...
