    Hello AnotherSotong, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, here's a possible workaround:

    1) Temporarily copy the contents of the external drive to another drive.

    2) Format the external drive using FAT32 instead of NTFS so there will be no more permission issues since those only apply to NTFS volumes.

    3) Copy the contents back to the external drive.
    Hi thanks for your fast response. Question: My understanding is that FAT32 only supports individual files up to 4GB in size and volumes up to 2TB in size. I do have many video files that are more than 4GB, which if I convert my external drive to FAT32 file system, I would encounter more problems with the large files I have. Please enlighten me. Thanks

    The 4GB file size limit would be an issue for you then.

    In that case, instead of taking ownership each time, add your accounts while on each computer to permissions for the drive, granting each account "full control", and make sure to enable inheritance (if not already) for any folder you have access issues with so it will inherit the same permissions as the drive it's on.

    Hi Brink - I have a few pesky files that absolutely refuse to delete or allow me to take ownership. I have tried everything imaginable it seems, but full success eludes me. I tried taking ownership as instructed, but it has not worked. I also tried using fileassassin and unlocker to no success. See the images below that show I successfully took ownership on some files, but not all, but also says no failures. When I try to delete the files I successfully took ownership on, it still prevents me from deleting because I do not have permission. I have tried this on my administrator account as well as the built in elevated admin account. Same failure with both.

    This originated from the Gears of War 4 game on the Windows Store app. I have deleted all files at this point except for 3, and their respective folders (so 7 items total I believe).

    Hello ckal9, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you haven't already, you might see if you may be able to delete them in a command prompt at boot opened after booting from installation media.

    This worked for another member a few days back. Use it at your own risk. This thing is Dangerous. I'm not even sure if posting it like this is OK with the Forum. I don't remember which member gave it to me. I'm passing it along with all the warnings that go with something like this. Copy the text and paste it into a new file named DeleteFolder.bat . Edit the commands for use with either folders "rd" or a file with "del"

    : Drag-drop the undeletable folder onto the icon of this batch script
    : (make sure itís the right folder!). Remove the batch file when done.
    :
    :
    Rem rd /s /q \\?\%1
    :
