Windows 10: Anniversary Update messed up permissions, no longer have write access
Anniversary Update messed up permissions, no longer have write access
This appears to have been caused by the Anniversary Update that Windows installed last night. Ever since then, my data drive D: has become read-only! Oddly enough, I can still make copies of folders but the copies don't contain any files. When I try to delete the folder, I get told I need to provide administrator access (click for screenshot), and then permission from the owner. Of course, I am the owner, and also an administrator. So why can't I delete this??
This screenshot shows the advanced security settings for the folder in question. As you can see, both Administrators and me have Full Control. When I click on the "effective access" tab, it confirms that I have all permissions for this folder, as you can see here.
I've tried logging off and on again, I've tried manually re-setting my account to an administrator. whoami /groups confirms this (screenshot). I even tried using Elias Bachaalany's "Reset Files Permission" tool, all to no avail.
I'm starting to run out of ideas... can anybody help? The owner of the root directory D:\ is SYSTEM, but that doesn't seem wrong. Would really appreciate a tip, in my years of Windows joy and suffering I have never seen anything like this. Thank you!
Hi guys. I am seeing this error twice on every boot since upgrading (even a clean install doesn't clear it).

Since the Anniversary update, I cannot play MKVs, MP4s and AVIs. I even installed the latest K-lite & CCCP after this. When I use WMP to play an MP4 for example, the program crashes. VLC plays AVI and MP4, but without sound.

While trying to delete the old windows files after an upgrade it kept denying deletion because TrustedInstaller wouldn't allow it so I tried to change ownership from TrustedInstaller to to administrators group and things went down hill from...
I'm not sure why PLEX needs full write access on your media libraries to update its database.
Only granting READ access I notice that a library update doesn't include the new media files I've added.
READ/WRITE access -- no problems.
