I'm using Windows 8 Pro x64. My account in the PC is an administrator account. Among several logical drives in the PC, admins have full control permission on all drives. I've confirmed this by drive's Property -> Security tab.
I use Firefox 17 as my web browser. I've set the location
E:\Downloads for all downloads to be saved. When I initiate a download, Firefox asks me to save the file. When I click Save File button, Firefox says that it can't save the file because it doesn't have necessary permission to do so.
Similar things happen with all other software. I use 7-zip. When I try to extract contents to
E:\ drive from a zip file using 7-zip, 7-zip tells that it doesn't have permission to output files.
To summarize, my user account is admin account, admins have full control of
E:\ drive, yet I can't create contents in
E:\ through various software. Why this happens and how to resolve this issue?
I've checked that if the specific user is given full control over
E:\ drive, then all software work as expected. This I think should not be an acceptable solution.
