Windows 7: Permissions for non-system, "user" drives; not "c:"

Permissions for non-system, "user" drives; not "c:"

Would like to not have UAC pop-up for files & folders on non-C: drives, so expect they need to have "full control". Default is Special Permissions. Is there a way to default to "full control" when new folders are created, or do I need to mod permissions for each one? Note that I am NOT talking about anything on the o/s drive C:.

How about right clicking the non C drive - clicking Properties - Security tab? Setting full control there for the entire drive? Does that work for you bro?

Thanks,
Robo

Sounds simple enough. Didn't see my "username" when I looked at drive properties (like is shown for dir/file properties), so I thought maybe there was something unique for drives. So I guess that just means I need to add my "username" to the "Group or user names" area & then I should be able to set the permissions and let inheritence take over...

I don't know if this is gonna work, so I would like you to make a System Restore point before you do ANY change.

Which? Mine? There are two. And those are the default permissions you see in the screenies.

Thanks, roboticarm. Already knew the steps - was more concerned about if there was a reason behind not seeing "username" appearing at drive level. And, although Admins have full control, Creater Owner only has Special permissions which is inherited.

ICit2lol, I have several machines that I'm building. Most are single user. 1 has 3 users, but I want each of those users to have complete control of anything that's on the non-o/s drive(s). Is that so odd?

Whoa hold up there mate!! I was just asking I didn't know if you wanted that or not if you are happy to let all three users have control over whatever on that machine then just use the same password. In that instance then just have one login account why would you need three?

The only thing is that do you want one user only to have full rights over say changing the registry if that ever arose as in being the only administrator. Because most of the set ups and fixes I do for friends they like to have the admin rights alone to stop the younger ones from doing things that they alone want to be able to do.

ICit2lol, you are sweet for trying to spot potential pitfalls, but it's not really a problem here. The one machine with 3 users is just a seldom used laptop where I am 2 of the users; hubby is the 3rd. Real reason for multiple users is just layouts of the desktop/Start Menu and/or viewing options, not security. Hubby needs a simple desktop & large mouse pointers, etc and will just use it occasionally for web browsing if we're "on the road". One of my "users" is me while the other matches the machine I'm setting up for a friend so I can "see what she sees" and test some stuff without doing remote console. Not a big deal, really.
