My simple question is, under Windows 7 how can I enable modification & adding of files to the root C:\ ?
History: I've always maintained a file C:\notes.txt which I use for all sorts of reminders etc & maintain with my standard text editor. When I first obtained my current Window 7 machine, I don't recall any particular trouble continuing the practice though I may have had to explicitly set permissions and/or sharing.
A few months ago I restored the machine, but never figured out how to enable root-writing.
Today I restored it again (for various reasons) and am still at a very early stage:
- None of my data copied in yet
- No software installed except virus and backup
- Only one user, Charles, which is of course an Administrator.
I try saving a test file from Notepad to C:\foo.txt, but "A required privilege is not help by the client."
I then set Sharing for C:, full access for everyone. Same result.
Thanks for help,
