Well, this is a new one...
I run IFW64 (simple mode) on two different machines, one under WIn7 and the other under Win10, and have been for a couple of years now. I periodically go in and clean up the older files. Today when I attempted to do this on the Win7 laptop, I was told (by Windows) that I didn't have administrative rights to do this. Hmmmm, I'm the only user and I have full admin rights.
(See the attachment for this part of the explanation). In particular, I was trying to delete the "0....0B" directory. After the DELETE function failed, I decided to try the COPY function. At every level of the tree structure, the copy failed ... UNTIL I moved above the "TeraByte_TBI_Backups" directory (i.e., the Root directory); then the copy succeeded. I discovered I could copy anywhere on the drive as long as I stayed out of the "TeraByte_TBI_Backups" tree.
Since the last time I did any cleanup on this drive, two things have changed: (1) Microsoft has been doing updates to protect against the security flaws in the Intel processors and (2) I have updated IFW to the latest version (3.16). I'm at a loss as to which, if either, might be the cause.
BTW, this does NOT happen on the WIN10 machine.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I still have space left on the drive, but will be unable to do IFW backups on his machine probably within a month.
