? also, now under the security tab under properties on my data drive, Users(Cloud\Users) is missing from groups or user names, which solved my problem of not allowing guests to get into my data drive, but if i want to change that in the future, how do i do that?

You are then going to run the .exe by using "Run as Admin".
Type in "cmd" this will open a command prompt.
Then type into the command prompt:
icacls Z:\ /remove:d Users
icacls Z:\ /grant [YOUR USERNAME HERE]:(F)
Next time you have the urge to change permissions of things come to us first.
