    Cannot save to ANY partitions at root level


    I have one 500GB SSD in the laptop and that is split into 3 partitions, i want to be able to save to the root on drive D (Images) and drive E (Downloads), i understand the reason behind stopping me saving to the root of the OS but D & E drive have nothing to do with the OS, I have turned down to nothing the UAC Setting but still no go, anyone have a fix for this?

    Help me please.

    What is a partition root level?
    I read several threads where the term (root level) is used.
    What is meant by root?

    The first level of the partition, C:, D:, etc.

    Windows, Users, etc are on the root level of C:
