An error occurred while applying security information, $$PendingFiles
Good day everyone,
I have searched the forum and failed to find an answer to my problem. I am currently having problems accessing one of my internal hard drives (not the one with Windows system files).
When I right click > Properties > Security > Edit
to edit the permissions of my drive X:\ I get the error noted in the image below. I'm not certain why im getting this error but it is absolutely frustrating. I run an SSD and I'd like to able to install certain programs on drive X:\ but since I do not seem to have full control, I am not able to.
I have tried using Take Ownership (which is described in [URL=" post[/URL] ) but I still get the error.
I have tried to run Windows Explorer as an Administrator, same results.
I believe I have covered the main troubleshooting steps that are suggested in this forum so if anyone else has any ideas, I'd love to hear them

Does this have anything to do with your problem?
Sounds like that happens when ProgramData or Program Files got accidently moved.
Rename or delete $$PendingFiles, create a new $$PendingFiles on the partition that has ProgramData, and (assuming the new partition is d do
mklink -j c:\$$PendingFiles d:\$$pendingFiles
