    In Place Upgrade To Win 10. No Ability to Make Changes/Read Only/User


    Hi,
    So as many have done I did an in-place upgrade to windows 10 from 7

    For about 21 days now I have been trying to figure out what to do. Basically every single drive I have doesn't allow for me to do anything. They are all marked read only and changing them back looks like its doing something then it reverts to the prior settings.

    So far I have taken all the steps shown here, including doing a name check for the user in the security tab and trying to take ownership there. That looks like its working and goes through the motions then resets back.

    I have tried both the elevated admin command for taking ownership as well as the shortcut for taking ownership in my windows tab. Nothing works.

    Changing permissions manually in the security tab or just clicking the "full" box and so forth also does nothing. It looks like its doing somethinn then resets.

    There are a number of soultions offered when googled

    MS account vs local account - try logging in with (switch to) a local account
    -- or --
    create a new local account


    Set UAC to the default level


    Check Homegroup sharing (read & write)
    a more aggressive approach offered was to replace Homegroup with Workgroup


    Onedrive - turn off fetch
    a more aggressive approach offered was to uninstall Onedrive


    Verify Security settings (advanced) on your volume(s)

    C:\ drive

    Check Bitlocker settings



    The most efficient solution is to backup your personal data and do a Clean Install.
    A clean install means that - the drive is wiped and Windows is installed fresh.

    Other members might provide the solution - so don't make a rush decision.
    If nothing offered works - consider a clean install.

    Ya I got the same results basically from google in the last couple weeks. I guess I am screwed and will have to do the in place install. Wish they had never offered it.
