Can't move files/folders in a folder?
I used to be able to do that before I reformatted my laptop. How can I fix this?
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I do not seem to be able to duplicate the same process for folders. I want to know if there is a way to do this, or do I have to move each folder,
otherwise, it becomes a pain to do this for a significant number of folders.
I have corrected it from my folder by placing all my files in folders. The files are not hidden, rebooting the server does not fix it. And it is random.
It happens to one user, maybe a month later another. Now it has happened to the CIO and he wants a fix not a work around.
When I go to Control Panel>User Accounts, it shows only account - mine, and I am the Administrator.
1) What could be causing this problem - the inability to save files in certain folders?
2) How do I solve this problem - the ability to save files in whatever folder I want?
3) How do I obtain permission from the Administrator? I am confused since I am the Administrator.
When I try to move a folder, sometimes a message box appears stating that I need to provide administrator permission to move this folder. If I then click on the "Continue" button, I am still able to move the folder in spite of the message box.
4) Why does this message box appear and how do I prevent it from appearing?
5) How does one provide "Administrator permission?"
Type in search 'Downloads' (which I can see exists in 'My Documents' )
No Folder Results Found it only finds files in the folder. If I know a folder name but not it's contents how am I supposed to find it?
What I want to do is put the Windows and the Programs Files folders (I will use XP terminology throughout because I don't know what the equivalent Win7 names are yet) on the SSD, theDocuments and Settings folder on a partition on the 1TB HDD and move some of the default folders in the D&S folder to other locations.
The Documents, Music, Pictures and Video folders (which tend to be large) for each user and Users onto the 2TB HDD, the rubbish files (TIF, Temp, Cookies, Recent Files, various caches etc) for each user and Users (where applicable) and Windows onto a separate partition on the 1TB HDD, all for ease in the way I backup my system.
I have more than enough USB externalHDDs (of various sizes) for this purpose and to create images.
Can I do this during the install of Win7? And do it in such a way that when or if I create a new user the folders go to the locations I have pre-chosen, ie, empty Documents folder etc straight onto the 2TB HDD, the empty rubbish folders onto a second partition etc.
Or set up a single user this way during install and then get Windows to do this in future and in eithercase create a modified install disk so that if I re-install at a future time this will happen automatically?
If so, what additional steps do I need to take, before and/or after the installation
I am assuming the Libraries will effectively be going where the Documents and Settings folder and the Windows and Program Files folder will be going, that is the 1TB HDD and the SSD (respectively).
Many programs -- including Outlook 2010 -- store pieces in folders other than the Documents folder, and in the Roaming folder(s), so backing up just the Documents folder is inadequate.
Is moving the personal folders to another drive possible and/or practical?
I am having trouble with rights to folders and files. I notice that I am unable to get to certain files, and when I check the rights, I see that it's because "I" am not the owner. I am able to get to other files in the same folder, but some files are unavailable.
I am the Owner of the folder, but that permission does not propagate to the files within the file, even after I tell it to.
The only fix is to manually make myself the Owner of each affected file, one at a time.
And now I see that I cannot get into CDocuments and Settings. There's a little lock on the icon, and if I try to open it, I'm told that "Access is Denied."
I can get into the Properties for that folder, and I have made myself the Owner, with Full Control. I still can't get in.
