Dragging items around in the folder, I can sort them alphabetical, by type, etc. but I cannot move them around manually. It goes for every folder I have, from my old PC and the ones I just made.

The folders belong to the following: "SYSTEM", "Will (Laptop\Will)", "Administrators (Laptop\Administrators)"

Will is the name of my account, so I assume that's me. And everything is checked except "Special permissions."
