    RE: SYSTEM owns User folder on drive D



    I recently installed Win10 on a C SSD and set a D hard drive for my data. I have assigned default save to be D. FYI, I do have a C:\User\[name]\Documents, Pictures, etc. also. However, I found that on my drive D, there is a D:\[name]\Documents, Pictures, etc. So I included the sub folders into the Library. However, the D:\[user]\Documents folder does exist but I cannot change the permissions at all (Read Only). It is owned by the System. Don't I need to take ownership back to make use of it? But how? Or do I just leave it alone. Right now, all save documents are going to C:\[user]\Documents. Other D:\[user] sub folders, i.e., Pictures and Videos, are writable. What gives?

    If you type Storage in the search bar and hit enter it will take you straight to the Settings page for entering where you want to save all your various items. Can you check if this is showing the D: drive?

    Yes, it is set to D. Right now, I have all Saves going to D except apps going to C. However, FYI, I have installed Steam games on D, but my game data Saves are stored in C under Documents. I assume this is because the D: Document folder is Read Only.
