I have two hard drivers, C:\ , which is responsible by my OS (Windows 7) and another one, D:\, which is resposible by my all data, like photos, music, video, etc. I would like to give permission to my folders located in D: as the same wich is given to C:\Users\Valter\Music.

Instead I store my music in C:\Users\Valter\Music I store in D:\Music. But both should have the same permission.

I'm asking that because a lot of software could not read my music files because of this permission thing.

UPDATE Here it's in my C:\Users\Valter\Imagens


Here it's in my D:\Images


Any ideas?

Have you tried moving your User/Music folder?

You can change the location of your folders like Documents, Music, Pictures, Downloads...

Just navigate to your User's folder (C:\Users\ on Windows 7) -> right-click on chosen folder -> Location -> Move -> Choose new location (in your case - folder on another drive). It will probably move the access properties as well.

But if it didn't, you can just edit permissions manually: right-click on your Music folder -> Security -> Edit -> and here you can add/delete users and their permissions.

Are you under administrator's account? Have you tried to edit permissions manually? – Zotov Oct 18 '11 at 14:50
