Windows 10: Moved Docs/Pics/Vids to other drive and now all users can access
Moved Docs/Pics/Vids to other drive and now all users can access
Recently advised my brother on a new PC. Found him a nice deal on an HP with an SSD and a HDD. We have the same at home and store all docs, music, pictures etc on the HDD. Told him to go for this setup, but, we have a problem...
I went round to set it up for him yesterday. They have two kids, so needed three user accounts - parents, kid1, kid 2. Set up parents with an admin account and kid1, kid2 with standard local accounts.
On the D: I created folders called parents, kid1, kid2. I then used the 'move location' option to relocate each accounts' documents, pictures, videos, music and downloads folders into the relevant D: folder.
C:\Users\kid1\Documents to D:\kid1\Documents
All working as it should. However....
If kid1 uses file explorer to browse the D: drive, they can go into kid2's folder (not surprisingly as it's just a normal folder) then go into their documents, pictures, etc and delete stuff. This is a problem!
On their old PC with a single HDD, non-admin users couldn't access each other's User folders. Apparently the kids can't be trusted not to mess with each other by deleting homework files!
Does anyone know how I can secure the relocated folders to the relevant user plus admins only?
I did look at folder properties and permissions, but individual user accounts weren't mentioned on the list. It just had:
- Authenticated users
- Admin users
- Standard users (used another wording for this - I forget what)
I stupidly assumed that when you relocated C:\Users\kid1\Documents, the permissions to it would move with it. Apparently not??
Slightly panicking that I shouldn't have advised my brother to get a dual-drive system.
Welcome to the Ten Forums.
Please check out Kari's tutorial on doing this. It will likely solve all your permission issues... and stress from recommending a dual drive system. It was the right recommendation.
I have recently changed the drive for my "save location" as it was getting a little full. The new drive is in place OK and new music/docs etc are now stored on the newly allocated hard drive. I do still need to move some files from the old...
I didn't know where else to post this. All of a sudden I lost some usb 2.0 & all 3.0 ports and my C: drive is now F:.
I tried to remove my usb hubs so windows could re-detect them. No go. I deleted the partition on my ssd to reinstall and
I've been looking around the Internet for a solution to "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3147458)" failing to update; and while there are a multitude of success stories out there, none of the...
I started my desktop computer and the desktop was blank. All my files from the desktop and from my user folder have been moved to C:\Users\DH (DH is the name of my account). All the settings in my account are deleted. For example I can't...
Unable to delete folder, unable to change permissions, and unable to get One Drive to read to Documents folder correctly. I have attempted five times and each time it fails. So I try to delete the One Drive folder so I can reboot and try again,...
