All directories changed to Read Only.


New Member
I'm preparing to reformat my PC with Win10. Currently, all the directories are Read Only due to Windows updating my PC over the past week. Rather than continuing to attempt to change the settings for each one of these directories (which they all just switch back) I have decided to just reformat to factory settings. With that being said, will my directories change back to the previous settings or will they remain as Read Only? This is causing complications for me with the work I do from home.

Lastly. During the recent update, the "WindowsApps" directory randomly appeared on my D: drive mixed in with my other personal directories. After the reformat, will I be able to delete it? It should be in the C: drive yet here it is in a new location.

Thank you.
