    Hi,

    I had to reinstall with my flash stick w8.1 & now all fotos do not open saying I do not have the correct permission. I am the administrator.

    Could it be because I chose not to create an MS account? I do not think that I signed for MS acc. before. ....thanx ....nick

    Was the D partition part of the original C drive when you reinstalled windows 8.1?

    Also just noticed notepad, pdf, pictures & word files are inaccessible in the "FOTO" directory whilst elsewhere all open

    If only I could get control in Foto although I am administrator, but how.

    I think the reinstall was corrupted in some form and you should perform a new clean install and then sign up/in with a MS account.

    Questioin: the "PHOTO" software is question; is that the app (tile) you are using to open your pictures.

    There is no "FOTO" directory in windows....none that I can find in my windows 8.1 Pro. Where did you get your copy of windows from?

    Cracky "B",

    I created years ago fotos directory in partition D & I save all my fotos in it.

    All through out the changes of my PC all items in it were opening Ok until now. I somehow I lost control of this directory now.
