Windows 8 unable to access, edit, save, or delete files and folders

Windows 8 unable to access, edit, save, or delete files and folders

Problems accessing, editing, saving, or deleting files or folders, can occur for one or more of the following reasons:
The folder ownership may have changed
You do not have the proper permissions
The file may be encrypted
The file may be corrupt
 
The user profile may be corrupt
Here are some things you can try that may resolve the issue:  

If you recently upgraded your computer to Windows 8 from a previous version of Windows, some of your account information may have changed and you may no longer have ownership of your files or folders. You might be able to resolve this by taking ownership of the folder. To take ownership of a folder, follow these steps:

1. Long press the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then tap Properties. (If you are using a mouse, right click the folder, then click Properties)

2. Click the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click Change.


3. Type the name of the person you want to give ownership to and click Check Names.

4. The user name that you’re giving ownership to should be display, click OK.

5. If you want that person to be the owner of files and subfolders in this folder, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.

6. Click OK.
