Hello

I reviewed the support session under SR 484570-2236782076 that you posted. I would like to clarify the below

1. The Temp directory is on a separate drive partition and not on the Local disk where Windows install resides. This may be an issue because the System may not have permissions on this Drive Partition.

2. Is your Windows 10 a Retail copy or the Insider Preview build. If it is the later then it is possible that CU for Windows 10 might have a change that caused this issue.

Hi Chinthanai,

1.     Yes, the 'Windows Temporary Directory' IS on a separate partition. It is a single-user PC and I ALWAYS access with 'Administrator's' permissions.

Sorry missed the important bit off -

All users EXCEPT 'Users (MISSION-CONTROL\Users)' have 'Full Control'.

I understand that MISSION-CONTROL is the name of PC and any windows user profile falls within the "Users" group. Is it possible for you to add permissions to "Users" group as well and see if Shredding works. By Permissions I mean allowing the below

1. Full Control

2. Modify

3 Write

Hi,

I've completed your request to change the permissions of the 'User' group
