Windows 10: After Clean Win 10 install, no longer move/save files to external HDD
After Clean Win 10 install, no longer move/save files to external HDD
I installed an Archer C2600 router and connected to one of its USB3 slots an external USB3 hard drive and thought I gave all users permission to read/write all files on the external HDD.
Recently, I had to do a clean install of Windows 10 and since then, I have not been able to do the following:
(1) start portable apps that are saved on the external HDD;
(2) when downloading anything with a browser (usually Firefox, but also Edge and IE), I cannot save the downloaded file/executable/etc. straight to the external HDD; and
(3) I cannot cut and paste files/folders from an internal HDD to the external HDD.
Regarding No. 3, Explorer just continues to show 0% complete and when I go to cancel the transfer, the already open dialogue box indicates it is canceling, but never stops "Canceling[.]"
Q: Can anyone help me trouble shoot what the problem might be?
Update: I found and updated the firmware and until I restarted my computer (with Microsoft updates updating during the restart), all was working just fine. Sheesh.
I have also tried to use TeraCopy but I keep getting the same error found in one of the above images: "The request is not supported."
Thank you for your time,
Alrighty. I am not sure what more I can do to troubleshoot this, so I guess I will have to get more creative.
Still not solved, but continuing to look for a resolution.
I recently activated my free upgrade and chose to transfer over my programs, configurations, etc. After doing this, my boot time went from around 20 seconds to 1:15. I want to try a clean install but only if I still have the option to revert back...
I re-installed win10 on my ASUS Q302LA laptop after completely wiping the c: drive using Ubuntu. I installed Ubuntu in order to delete the "Old windows" folder, which apparently can only be done from windows if you have god or "trusted user"...
Second PC with Win 7 Pro 32 bit was a struggle...but succeeded in Brinks clean install and activation of 10...but was a real struggle.
Now...how can I transfer the new 10 install on an HDD to a new Sata SSD in the same box ? So far haven't...
Clean install of w10. I am signed in w/a local account which is also an admin account on the PC I'm saving/moving too.
I have read/write access to these folders but I cannot save to the folders.
Any idea what's going on?
