    Some kind of admin rights issue. Not sure


    Hi guys,

    I have this annoyance which I cannot solve by myself so please bear with me while sugesting some solutions

    Asking this because not quite sure which is the affected folder or how it's affected as a matter of fact.

    It’s about a win 10 I just installed yesterday (in dual boot with win 7 32 bit, on some other partition).

    This fresh installed windows 10 (not upgraded) is not allowing me as an admin user (single user of the PC) to add new files (through copy or move, or delete) on any of the folders that win 10 has created on C drive, without a prompt for admin “you'll need to provide administrator permission to…” copy/move/delete etc, although in advance security tab I can see full rights granted for administrators.

    Outside those folders on C that windows originated during installation (or on any other drives), isuue is not present.

    I posted a crapy 3 min video on Youtube, as the audio serves better for self explanatory of this issue.

    Thanks!

    That is as it should be, no issue there. Windows protects the system folder, wanting you to confirm whenever you want to copy to, move to or delete from a system folder (Windows, Program Files, Program Files (x86), ProgramData).

    That is to protect you and your Windows installation.

    Choose C: to reset permissions for, but the results might be unpredictable.

    It is using windows commands to reset permissions, but anything could happen.

    So this is no rights conflict, nothing deviant here?
    This is how windows 10 is behaving natively?

    I find it a quite disturbing matter when installing to default location or when moving files to almost anywhere on C.

    Whooooa!
    After a maaaaaaaaaaaaaaasive ownership taking of ~ 80 min at 90-100% hdd load on C, I own my land
    No more MS buging anymore.
    Let's see now how unpredictable it can be.
    Will it crack up? Will it fly?

    Thanks goes to Tairiku Okami

    Later edit: no good! back to 1!
    Recycle bin corrupted, cortana and start menu disabled, other unresponsive items..... > reinstall
