    I have tried adding me and admin and taking ownership this
    problem just recently started. I upgraded from w8 pro not xp,
    I am not actually dual booting, I am using a removable HDD tray
    I am swapping HDD's with the tray but both have windows 10 pro on
    them with the same activation code and the same Microsoft account,
    is there anyway to synchronize the Sid . besides if I delete the partition
    and create a new partition the drive should not show up when I swap the boot drive
    with the old drive name and files and folders on it and it does but some files and
    folders cant be accessed and some can. . this has got me baffled...
    Don't think it's possible to synchronize different SID's after the fact.

    I don't know whether this is endorsed - it certainly isn't the safest method, but what has worked for me is this:

    If I'm using an external NTFS-formatted drive that I intend to swap between several computers, I prepare the drive ahead of time by giving root ownership and access to "Everyone".

    Also, something like this may be of use:

    Definitely not. It would be completely absurd if you could do that. You may as well not have any security at all.

    Me too. For example the drive I download torrents to is set to allow everyone RW access as it just makes it easier for me. (my Transmission Client runs on Arch Linux)

    It needn't be the whole drive though - it can be a share or directory - however you deal with your security.
