What should I do?
by quia_temet / July 17, 2007 5:25 AM PDT

There is nothing in the settings or administrative setting that does not allow me to take ownership or anything in the users;bios;config; nothing that would be set otherwise not to allow me permission. Does anyone know what to do?

Its practicably all my files in the whole drive
by quia_temet / July 17, 2007 6:03 AM PDT

I have a new system and I added my old drive (about a year old) and compatible to this unit as a slave drive. I can access them fine and use them fine. I just can't move anything around, well very few of them I can. I have applied full permission to the entire drive, folders, sub-folders and everything that it requires to be done. I know how to use vista quite well, but this permission thing is a problem. Microsoft doesn't even understand it. The OS has taken over control on its own and does not recognize the permissions granted. It really doesn't matter what type of file it is. Vista seems to have a missing link as they told me and the OS needs to be updated with a fix. they said SP1 will be out in the beginning of August but that still may not be included with the fix. My unit is a unique setup and Vista is missing the command script to identify the issue and allow it.

Okay..That software doen't work either + I had it already
by quia_temet / July 17, 2007 6:23 AM PDT

Does anyone know the answer to this problem? Thats the real test question. Software is not going to do this. A command script is needed.

You didn't really tell ...
by Kees Bakker / July 17, 2007 7:58 AM PDT

- what exactly makes your PC unique, as you write
- what kind of command script should be needed to identify the issue and why you didn't write it yet
- what kind of command script should be needed to allow access and why you didn't write it uet
- what 'move around' means (copy/paste, drag and drop, command prompt copy?)
- what exactly happens (text of error message)
- why you think the drive is compatible if obviously something is wrong with it
- how the files came on the drive to start with
- if you can create new files on the drive and if you can move those
- if you can delete files on the drive
- if it's on both partitions of the slave drive
- what happens after you remove both partitions, create one new one and format it as NTFS: can you 'move them around' then?

I'll get back after I eat Must Read enclosed Information
by quia_temet / July 17, 2007 9:18 AM PDT
In reply to: Sorry, but..

Anyways....I will provide all that info a little later...chow time..., but I will say this before I go and eat...I have done everything that you have already suggest and I know the only allowable thing available to fix the issue is write a script command and that needs to be done, also I said "the files were there from taking the drive from my other system that was about a year old and placed it into my new system as a slave drive". These are my documents and programs that I want to keep. AAlso I said that I can access them, just not move them and what I mean by that is copy, drag, move, rename, ect but I can open them. I have formated the drive in G: that gave me the same problem @ first but I followed the steps required and drive F is already in NTFS format supported by Vist and G: drive is now formatted that way. The OS does not apply permissions fully to the drive F: my system is as follows:

In reply to: I didn't ask for that.

all drives have icacls /f and all users have /f what exactly are you looking for. please be a little more specific. I am absolutely sure all icacls are /f on all users and drives in bios and settings active to me as the administrator/owner.

I need to know what you are asking for me to understand what you really need for info....I have given everything in reply I believe.

Strange HD Designation...?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / July 17, 2007 10:00 AM PDT

It appears like you've got two "D:" drives. Is the information below correct:

Hard Disk Capacity
Disk Space 320 GB Hard Disk Partition C: and D:8 GB

Disk Space 160 GB Hard Disk Partition F: and D: 9 GB


That normally doesn't pan out well.. Which of those drives is the secondary "slave" which was added from the other machine? Have you tried renaming that particular D: drive to an unused drive letter?

Hope this helps.

I'm sorry thats suppose to be F: and G: 9 GB

Then Please Answer Some Of The Questions That Were Asked..
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / July 17, 2007 10:21 AM PDT

You mention that you can't "move" the files on the secondary drive but can access them.. What exactly mean by "access"? If they are files from the "My Documents" folder for example, can you open them and view the file.. Can you open a "Word" document if it resides there?

On most Vista machines, the drives are now SATA. (The Hitachi drive appears to be SATA. So does the Seagate.) Are both of your drives SATA or just the primary drive? If SATA, then there should be no jumpers...They should both be "master" and not one "slave" despite your calling one a "slave".

Hope this helps.

Correct,,,everything you said is correct
by quia_temet / July 17, 2007 11:17 AM PDT

I just call it a slave drive and yes I can open and view them, I can not move them or rename them and all setting are correct....the issue error pops up the dialog box that you need permission to perform your action...I have everything set correctly...I had Microsoft logged in my machined and verified that...I want to manipulate the software with a script command to override the error that is within Vista. Otherwise I will have to wait until a update comes out. they did not know this error existed because they was dealing with a rare system set-up. They said the error is not in my settings but within Vista. Thats why I want to write a script command, in order to override the permissions error in the OS and apply it to the entire drive and or the subfolder I choose.

A Note...
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / July 17, 2007 2:02 PM PDT

Your recent posts have been removed because they were off topic and against forum policy. Each of the individuals here VOLUNTEERS their time.. The moderators don't get paid to help you help yourself and your constant "whining" certainly doesn't help you get help from others. Folks help when they can find the time and for those that ask nicely. We also tend to assist others that help themselves.

Next, you don't have a "unique" or "rare system setup" except that you are now using Vista.. So far, it's not a "builder friendly" operating system. Your insistence on using a particular fix may or may not be the correct method of doing so and only patience and effective correspondence will help us help you.. You still haven't answered all of the questions posted by Kees above.. And it would sure help if you were to post the EXACT error message you are seeing when you attempt to "move" or "rename" them.. Can you "copy" and "paste" the files? Can you do it from a command prompt? Things like that..

By the way, at this point in time, I'm guessing you've disabled the UAC on Vista?

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
