User Permission problems on external drives
Posted 06 January 2013 - 02:25 PM
I have noticed that all the external drives I plug into my laptop show them to be in the shared state and it shows a tiny icon on top of the drive letter of two people's upper torso and head standing next to each other.
Does anyone know how to fix this or get access permission rights for these external drives.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Any suggestions on how to get rid of this folder? There is about 2 gigs of system files in the folder that used to belong to my old laptop.
Regardless, that download you suggested works great.

It'll install under right click menu.
Open Windows Explorer.
Navigate to offending folder/file.
Right click on a folder/file. Click Unlocker
Select Delete from drop-down menu:
A folder/file will refuse to be deleted, but Unlocker will give you an option to delete on reboot:
If the above doesn't work, try...
