    Loss of permission to access to files on data drive - advice please.


    I recently upgraded my dual boot PC to Win 10 Creators edition (both 32 bit & 64 bit installations) - these share access to a data partition.

    Some files I downloaded in the past few days will not let me open them & give the attached error message.

    This is very strange & has not happened before - can someone advise why this is happening, how to fix & how to avoid in the future ?
