Windows 7: saving

I have 3 hard disks. 1 SSD and 2 regular hard disks. 1 of the three, whenever I try to save something there, it tells me that I do not have permission to save there. I am using an administrator level account, but not THE Administrator account... I'm the only person that uses this box.

Obvious question - which one of the three, and is it internal / external. (I assume your SSD is the Windows 7 drive)

All the drives are internal. It's one of the real drives.

You are correct, the SSD is my boot drive, and not a problem.

OK then, my next question is "try and save something there" - do you mean through any particular program, through all programs, simple copy/paste or send to via explorer...

All programs. They all say a variation of the same thing. Something about "You do not have permission to save there, contact the administrator to obtain permission. Would you like to save to My Documents instead?"

right click one of your drives--select 'properties'--select the 'security' tab--check how the permissions are set.
(?--did this start after installing SP1 ??)

Hello Dukeofurl,

See if taking ownership of the drive and making sure that your user account is set to have it's permissions set to "Allow" "Full Control" of the drive will allow you to have access afterwards.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I was going to suggest the same as tman69. Have a look at the attached screenshots.
On the 1st you can see properties (left) & Advanced (right), then if you click Edit (2nd screenshot left) you can assign or deny acces to users (right).

OK?

I added the automatic method of taking ownership, with the registry hack thing, it works for files and folders, but you can't take ownership of a drive. I messed around with the permissions though, and it seems to work now. Thanks
