How to Arrange External Hard Drive Security Options?
Some files in my external drive has a lock symbol near them, some don't.
Why is this happening?
I am using Microsoft Sync and recently I had to use "Run as Administrator" for it because some files were "access denied".
(I am using the drive in different operating systems in different partitions).
Should I run Sync in administrator mode, or regular?
How should I arrange the security for the drive?
Should I add users or everyone?
(now it is creator owner, system, administrators and me -I am administrator and only user-).
I got confused because before I didn't need to use the administrator mode for syncing and I don't want it to cause problems when syncing, not to miss any files.
I am looking for some advice.
(When I try to give myself -username-pc/username- full control, after that it still returns to not full control, no permissions for the drive are inherited )
