Folder Permission problem

I know there were many question like this before
And, i almost have tried everything but still it's not solved it

I have tried the way from SECURITY tab folder
It helped in most folders but not everything
and sometimes it got messier where i can do anything cept read
Even though i'm the administrator

And i have tried formatting the HDD, but still it have the problem
The HDD which hold the backup folder got same problem too
so i HAVE 2 HDD(1 tb each) have this problem

Please, is there any easy way to delete those permission?
To do it once per folder it is too much

Thanks....

Not exactly ... but sometimes people mess up with their windows folder after taking ownership of it . I would suggest it to have a Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup before applying that shortcut in C drive .... so that it can be reverted back easily in future , if needs .

Is windows folder is that C:\Windows\.... ?
Or all folder that registered in my computer?
If yes it is the C:, i think i won't mess or maybe touching something in that system folder
I'm still an end user won't mess that up before knowing what i'm doing

Oh yea, thx for the advice btw
