Win10 Cannot Access C Drive As Administrator

Welcome to Programming Tutorial official website. Today - we are going to cover how to solve / find the solution of this error Win10 Cannot Access C Drive As Administrator on this date .

I just upgraded to Win10 and as an Administrator my account does not have write privlages to access the root of the C: drive. From the Properties | Security | Advanced settings of the disk I have changed ownership from TrustedInstaller to my_machineAdministrators and rebooted. The local Administrators group has full control of the drive and my account is an Administrator account. Yet, I still can’t write to C: root from my account. Any help would be appreciated.


In Windows 10, Microsoft does not want us saving files to the root folder of C.

This is not recommended, but it is still possible to write to C: when
the writing program is run as administrator.
