A read-only folder


I got a new PC and connected my 1TB My Book.

Now, I have one folder (with sub-folders) that I can’t change at all.

Nothing I’ve tried fixed this issue.

I can only read & execute files in this folder and sub-folders.

Does anyone know this problem?

How can i solve it?

Hi there, is your computer granting you enough permissions to modify the folder? o.o

You can also format it to clean it!

What OS are you using?



I’m pretty sure - I’ve also tried this while logged in as an administrator and nothing’s changed.

It seems like it’s the drive itself that won’t grant permission.

I know I can format it - I’d rather not use this option right now… I have plenty of data on it.
