Running Windows 10*

I have two drives. My C drive and my D drive. I use my D drive as an external hard drive, but it's internal. My C drive is an SSD and my D drive is an HDD. My SSD is too small, so everything large goes on the HDD. Every folder in my HDD is read-only. I right click the folder and go into properties and take it off read-only and apply the changes, when I go back into properties the folder in question is back on read-only. I have googled this problem multiple times. So all of the basic things that I can try, have been tried. I'll list them below. Omegle

Both CMD with Admin Privilegesattrib -r +s drive:\\ Appvalley

attrib -r -s drive:\\

Example Images: Not my system, the images are examples but I did the aforementioned and still no result.

Hi Steven,

There is a little Registry change that can be accomplished without using the Registry. You can add "Take Ownership" to your Context menu. Here is a link to the steps you need to take:

Hope this helps,
