    Thanks Brink.

    It is (attached)

    What other settings should I consider?

    By the way, the F drive is external drive of 2TB. Does this make any difference?

    I meant for the F: drive to have these permissions set.

    In that case, see if this may help.

    Use step 2 in OPTION FOUR below to take ownership of the F: drive with either your account or the Administrators group. At step 11, be sure to check the Replace owner of subcontainers and objects box.

    Thanks Brink,

    But why I’m having this issue now? I used to access any folder in F without having this frustrating message? What is the cause of this message?

    Your last screenshot showed the owner of the F: drive as a long SID instead of an actual user or group.

    A SID is a unique ID number for a user account. When you see a SID in permissions or as owner instead of the user's account name, it means that the user account has either been deleted or no longer available at the time.

    This could also easily happen if you say removed F: from another computer, and connected it in this computer. The user from the other computer that has permissions on the drive are obviously not on this computer.

    Usually setting your account or the Administrators group as the owner with "full control" permissions and applying to all subcontainers and objects on F: would let you have access again without having to click on "Continue" to approve first.

    Thanks Brink,

    The problem persists to exist despite the fact that the owner is everyone (attached)!

    Change the owner to your account to see if you still get prompted afterwards.

    Just wanted to chime in to say I found this info very useful as I never realized what that string actually meant. I usually just deleted it where I could, making sure I had the correct credentials there for ownership.

    Thanks

    Would rep, but I haven't been spreading enough love
