Cannot Save System Files - No Permission To Use Directory

Aug 24, 2015

I have had Windows 10 installed for a while and decided the other day to save anew picture from my webcam for my personal communications etc. I did get the webcam on and clicked take picture. When I went to use the picture it was not where the systemsaid it would be. Nothing had been saved. After checking the properties of the directory the system said I did not have permission to use that directory.

I also tried to download a PDF to my download directory and the file was not saved for the same reason. Their is obviously a permission problem from going to Windows 10. I previously had Windows 7 Home.

Administrator Permission Needed To Save Photos / Files To Own Folders

Aug 24, 2015

Once it was my turn to gain the free Windows 10 installation I went straight ahead and everything went well except when I went to save a photo to My Photos. Windows 10 began repeatedly asking for "administrator permission" to save to my OWN folders on my OWN laptop. My PC was not in a Homegroup, neither was it in a network of other PC's....I WAS the administrator!

If you encounter this problem (and many will) you may want to try my solution which after exhausting all other avenues including disabling inheritance and mucking about with Permissions, this does indeed work.

Windows 10 and Microsoft seem to think all PC's are networked (they are not) and so the solution is to join the Homegroup with yourself as the only member, that way you become "administrator" and gain back control of your files.

Start menu (bottom left) - type "Homegroup" in search box and then click on "settings" - click "Homegroup" - then follow instructions to set up a new Homegroup and make a note of the password it generates. Chose what folders to 'share' or not and then you will become homegroup administrator with full permissions.

Can't Save Files - No Email Now System Won't Reboot At All?

Aug 21, 2015

It just sits there with a red screen and circling dots for hours. I have no access to change the boot options or anything else. I did find a thread from someone claiming to be a Microsoft Software engineer giving directions to change ownership of files on the computer. After 3+ hours it finally finished and put out some message about changing profile or something like that. I just booted the system. It took another 3+ hour to complete the reboot and apparently undid al the ownership changes. I gave up for a day or more but turned on the computer last night. Six hours later it still spinning white dot on a red background with no access to any OS.

No Permission To Save A Document

Aug 20, 2015

I have a 1 TB SSD HDD with only my OS, Programs and Games on it, with another 1 TB (Mechanical) HDD installed for my Data (Documents, Pics, etc.). I did the upgrade option (not a clean install) and for some reason now, I can't save any documents to my DOCUMENTS folder without getting an error message:

You don't have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission. Would you like to save in the Documents folder instead?

If I choose YES OR NO, nothing happens. I can only save it to my desktop.

I normally do a Clean install, but wanted to get my Serial by doing the upgrade first, so when I install it, I have my Activation Code that is legit. I also noticed, Windows 10 turned of my Ethernet Devices on it's own...but that's for another post!

How To Get Administrative Permission To Save Photos

Aug 2, 2015

I just upgraded to Windows 10 and now cannot save files to my folders. I am listed as administrator when I boot up and this is my personal laptop PC, so there are no other users. I have looked and looked for where to fix this and cannot find where to do this. Everything worked fine in 8.1 before the upgrade. It tells me I need administrative permission to save the photo, etc., but how do I give myself this permission?

Access Denied - No Permission To Save In This Location

Aug 13, 2015

I have just installed windows 10 and I am listed as the administrator. However, if I try to save a newly written document in a folder that I have always previously used for that purpose, I get a message which says:- You don't have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission. Would you like to save in the Documents folder instead? I can not create folders or save files in existing folders. This occurs when I try to save in Documents folder or the OneDrive. I am able to save on network places though. Is there an EASY permissions fix that does not require changing permissions for all the folders.

Running 64bit OS But Files In The Directory Show X86

Mar 16, 2016

I checked and all of my drivers are 32 bit and under some utilities there are a lot of files that aren't found as in not on my computer. I have also found that I seem to be booting through a virtual device through PXE to a Linux Ubuntu server...I know my drive is a shadow copy and that the files I see are for my viewing pleasure and the actual files are set up like an XP directory with documents and setting separate from the user folder. I am also running a dummy bios that is protected. It reacts differently in different brands of laptops. There are common references among all my pcs as in what they want running...print and fax, backup and sync, sound recorder and video as well.

They also track me. I traced the software to a site on facebook called freeware sys and dilshad sys who I have found out is or was a social worker in NewYork city and a game programmer as well. They have not stolen a penny from be but they are running keystroke loggers. The use the log files to counter what I do to rid f them. I have last many laptops to them and I have also seen through a utility boot program that they transfer data to my pc through me paranoid but I can back all of this up.

Move All Files Inside Folders To Parent Directory

Nov 19, 2015

I have a folder (let's call it BASKET), inside that folder I have many other folders (for the sake of the example, I will name for example 3 folders - banana, apple, and cucumber). These 3 folders (in my case its many many folders) have files in them. I would like to move those files (from banana, cucumber, and apple) to the BASKET folder. The folders are so many, it's tedious to go in each one and move the files back one by one.

Why Get A Permission Error When Saving Existing Word Files

Oct 14, 2015

I've recently installed Windows 10 and since today I'm having this issue when I edit an existing Word document and try to save it.

The error:

"Word cannot complete the save due to a file permission error.(C:User...Ongoing NotesInfoSoft.docx)"

I've noticed that there is a new user account that I didn't have before, which is an account associated to my Gmail. However, I've checked which account I logged in before opening the Word document, modifying and trying to save it - and it is an account with theoretically full to fix it?

Permission Errors - Access Denied Messages When Saving Files In Various Local Directories

Aug 26, 2015

Ever since upgrading to Windows 10 I am having random "Access Denied" messages when saving files in various local directories. From my research it appears that I need to take ownership of my files again. However, I can't seem to get the system to understand that I am the owner. When attempting to take control many folders will come up with an enumeration error. Why I am unable to take possession of my own folders? I think the reason I'm having issues is that after I upgraded I switched to a Microsoft account which uses a different username than what I used previously before the upgrade. But, there should still be a way to claim access to my files.

Initial Error Message:

Enumeration Error when attempting to take ownership:

Drivers/Hardware :: System Notifications Won't Save

Feb 10, 2016

I hate that every time I plug in my headphones I get the annoying sound and notification that they're plugged in (for some reason it sounds off twice every time they're plugged in actually). So in preferences I turn off Realtek HD Audio Manager, which fixes the problem, but when I restart my computer it's back on. Preferences were working fine until about a couple months ago when Windows updated.

Games Cannot Write Save Files

Oct 16, 2015

As described above, I have games with varying degrees of the problem. Some cannot save settings, still some other cannot save game progression, the worst has it both. I was able to do various workarounds that let me partially solve the problem.

However, I hit a block with my newly installed Metro Last Light Redux, it doesn't write any saves anywhere. I Googled my problem and no solution fit me, I tried writing an "attrib" modification on "My Documents" using an elevated command prompt to rid the "Read-Only" attribute but that still didn't work. I tried taking ownership of the folders in question but still nothing.
