If you like, here's more details about exFAT below.
When you right click on a drive and click on Format, the exFAT option is only available for removable drives like a USB flash drive.

However, you should be able to format the internal hard drive as exFAT in the command prompt using the command below as a workaround. Substitute F for your drive letter instead.

Format F: /A:64K /FS:ExFAT

Thanks for that, so far everything is running smoothly, of course it hasn't been that long so I will post back in a few days to let you know how everything has been going. I have to get everything installed and start putting exFAT through it's paces to see if it hurts my performance all that much, and if the drive magically locks itself or not.

Thanks again! :)

You're most welcome. :)

Since it's an SSD, I don't think you'll see any noticeable difference in performance.

I also had the problem with installation files (exe only) not running after I applied the reg so I removed it. I just realised this now, after formatting my computer twice... :( Please write this in the description so that people know!

Having a slight problem with this wonderful wonderful tweak. I had added the "elevated command prompt" to my context menu in the past and loved it, however I saw this and thought OMG! So I quickly added it and noticed my option for the command prompt was now gone.

I was just disabling a ton of services so I thought that may have been the culprit. I re added it and POOF now this one is gone. After a quick look around it seems their MAY have been some sort of work around present on the sevenforums... not sure if its possible or if it works on eight? Anyone have any help or am I forced to choose one or the other? :(

Hello Klepp,

Unfortunately, they both use the same "runas" registry key to be able run them elevated. You can add either one, but not both. :(

Boooooo! lol. I figured as much.

If you do install the "elevated command prompt" over the "take ownership" it will afford you the ability to use elevated via context on folders, and still have take ownership on individual files. Not ideal - but better than nothing.

Thank you for the reply, however I have one more question. I googled as I KNOW ive seen it before, but simply couldn't come up with it this time lol. As a compromise I was considering using the "take ownership" and having shift+right click for command prompt BUT I want the shift+right click to be ELEVATED command prompt. This is possible right? If memory serves and it is, can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks so much!

It is, but it'll still use the same runas key and replace Take Ownership.

You would add an Extended string value with a blank (empty) data value in the right pane of the runas key to make it Shift + right click. :)

Ugh... Well I guess that's that then. I had trouble with permissions due to a file owned by SYSTEM not letting me delete it which Take Ownership fixed. (not sure what I was overlooking via doing it manually - but apparently im not as familiar as I thought I was) so I wanted to keep Take Ownership for future endeavors.

With that being said, I use the command prompt much more often so im in a pickle.

I could just use the winX menu for command prompt and keep Take ownership, the only caveat is that id be stuck navigating to where I need/want to be by hand which can suck and most certainly takes longer. (we are all about convenience nowadays aren't we lol)

Aaaanyhow, for curiosities sake - what would/do you do?

thanks Brink as usual for a fantastic solution to an annoying issue that comes up from time to time.

for my personal tastes, i would really like to have the "Take Ownership" much lower down on the list of context menu items. it's something i rarely use, and don't need it right there with my primary commands, but also don't want to get rid of it for it being so useful.

i'm wondering if you or anyone might have some advice on the BEST method or software to use for rearranging context menu items. i haven't used a context menu editor in a while, but i remember trying a few of them and having trouble getting the result i was looking for. plus, for some reason, a lot of the context menu editing information seems to be years old, so i though i would ask (and perhaps this should be a new topic) what is truly the best, easiest to use method or software for editing the context menu? :)

thanks very much!

Wow! Thank you Brink and David so much! I will check out what you updated Brink, and I'll check into "Ultimate Windows Context Menu Customizer" - I have not tried that one. Looks very nice indeed!

Much appreciated! Thank you *bows*

Edit:
I see "Ultimate Windows Context Menu Customizer" from door2windows does not officially support Windows 8.1, but I noticed that David you are also using Windows 8.1 as well, so I guess it must work just fine. I'll give it a shot. It sure looks very comprehensive. Actually the whole site has some pretty nifty tools. Nice!

Brink, you sure work fast! Thank you so much, that is absolutely perfect! I will be sure to check out the software David suggested but by you adding the top, middle and end options - that is everything I could ask for. You are amazing :) ty!

I have changed my reg to work better, replaced administrators to "username", since I had problem changing the bootreg.dll. See attachment. View attachment 56986
Hello Andreas, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Thank you for the addition. That's fine if you wanted to have the owner changed to the current user instead of the Administrators group.

In effect, it does the same thing since only an administrator account is able to take ownership. The only time when using %UserName% instead would be helpful is when you see this below in the Security properties where you must use the account name instead of the Administrators group for access.

There is a bug in your modified version though. The code should be this below instead for it to work.

Correct:
Code:
@="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /a && icacls \"%1\" /grant \"%UserName%\":F /c /l"
"IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /a && icacls \"%1\" /grant \"%UserName%\":F /c /l"
Instead of:
Code:
@="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /a && icacls \"%1\" /grant "%username%":F /c /l"
"IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /a && icacls \"%1\" /grant "%username%":F /c /l"

Thanks Brink!

This helped a lot in clearing the old rubbish out. However, there is still one file which I can't do anything with. It's not because of this, it just says that it's too long:

The filename(s) would be too long for the destination folder. You can shorten the filename and try again, or try a location with a shorter path.
Any ideas of what I can do to remove this? I already tried renaming via F2 and right click but neither will work.

Hello Chris,

You could see if the free program Unlocker may delete it. :)
