    Ownership not applying to subfolders of 2nd harddrive?

    Hi, I search about this and didn't found a solution for this headache i'm having

    What is going on: i have a second harddrive (not external/usb) and all my files on this is with wrong ownership
    So, i tried use the "take ownership" menu context helper and also the TakeownershipEx, but nothing worked for me.

    I tried to change the drive ownership under the security settings from my harddrive (right click on icon > settings > security > Advanced...), have changed the it for full control of my adm account and my user elevated acc, with the container setting checkbox ennabled. Looks everything fine and i supose to have full access as windows state to me, but if i try to overwrite a file on this hdd i got errors and only can do this if i start the application i'm trying to overwrite the file as admin.

    I'm running out of ideas here, individually change the permission of files i need to work is something that works, but i have hundred of files that need to be change and cannot change one by one, feels like a windows 10 bug or i missing something here?

    My windows 10 have the anniversary installed and this is a clean install

    found a way to get permissions working
    it is definitely a bug, why this is happens? dunno... it's microsoft... whatever let me say what i did

    i repeated the steps of take ownership by right click on hdd icon > settings > security > advanced > changed the owner by retype my user on the list > check the two checkboxes (container and the other one) at the same time and apply > took some minutes to write the permisisons of all files and folders.

    ALSO, i ran the TAKEOWN command on elevated prompt just right after this (i think this is what made me overwrite files again on that harddrive)

    and voila, i was able to edit my old files writen on old windows installation
    this might be useful to someone: windows 7 - How would I use Takeown to take ownership of all folders on one drive? - Super User
