    Hey all, I've used Windows forever, have enjoyed using OneDrive to share stuff between computers.

    I'm ok with the losing placeholders thing. I guess I have to be, because they are gone.

    Here's the issue: I have always just saved something into a OneDrive folder, say the Pictures folder, then been able to see it on other computers synced to OneDrive.

    But since I upgraded my main computer to OneDrive the other day, I have run into a problem where it says I don't have permission to save to the OneDrive Pictures folder. Says I need to talk to an Administrator.

    Ok, but the account I am using (my MS account) to sign onto that machine IS an adminstrator account.

    So I go over and say Ok, I will just grant my specific ID full fold, mutilate, rend access to OneDrive.

    Then it is all good - until I reboot, and it changes it back again.

    So what is a guy to do? What's being done incorrectly, anyone run into this or have a clue what to do?

    1. Something is resetting your changes, is it a corporate asset? If so, group policies could be the culprit.
    2. Try this to take ownership of folders esp when you change user accounts. Add "Take Ownership" to Explorer Right-Click Menu in Windows

    Not a corporate asset, and when I check security I am the owner.

    Something is definitely setting it back though.
