    Drive permissions error 0x80070522, driving me insane

    Alright, so I just recently did a fresh installation of Windows 10 onto an SSD, and now I'm trying to get at all my personal data, which is on a separate HDD.

    I can access the data it seems, but whenever I try to do certain things like write to the root of the drive for example, I get the following error:

    I have tried a few different online solutions with regard to tinkering with the permissions, and none of them have helped.

    Any ideas? Windows permissions are so incredibly frustrating.

    I've already looked at those links. Am I to believe that I'm not allowed by Windows 10 to write to the root of ANY drive, by default?
