It's still on my laptop under Linux now so I'm not working with it for awhile but the obvious things with security didn't do the trick. This drive was
acting under windows like the locked directories were off limits to me entirely. It was like I was using a lower privilege account, which makes no
sense because I was trying to do this as admin. It'll be a bit before I get any time to mess with it again on the windows machine to see what would
have worked ..but I was at my wits end by the time I wandered over here. lol... I really don't understand it though.
I've used permissions to lock things this way deliberately before on my Son's machine and it's no problem, for me anyway. This though? Well.... I
guess this is what he feels like if he wanders off the path I set in that box for him to stay on. To have it happen on my own stuff that has not been
changed ...that I ever meant to do ... for security or permissions was infuriating. I'll see and definitely update here when I can hook that back up
and work with it without fear of losing anything important if it goes sideways on me.
Im just glad I had another option outside the windows environment.
