I have a new 2012 Server. D: drive is for data and I will be creating a number of shares.
By default, even logged on as a Administrator, I seem unable to modify a .cmd file I copied onto D:. I open it in notepad and it won't let me save any changes.
What should I be setting the NTFS permissions to on the root of D: ?
I will subsequently be creating some individual folders for different users and departments, each of these will have individual permissions set which should be straightforward.
I just don't understand why I do not seem to have full permissions on the root of D:\ (Checking the permissions tab shows that I should have full control to that drive)
So what am I overlooking?

It's because of UAC, even if you are logged one as an administrator you dont have administrator right until you elevate (Run as administrator).
Open notepad with "run as administrator" (right click on notepad and choose "Run as administrator") now you are eleveted and have full administrator rights.
