  • Hi mr-mango,

    Which folder that you are trying to move ?

    As asked by Shawn Keene, could you please share us more details here, better with a screenshot.

    Make sure we use the admin account to move folders.

    Besides, if we met the issue when moving the folder, we may fist take ownership of that folder, then move it;

    For the NAS drive permission, we need to gain access on it.

    Right click on the drive and select properties, then on the security tab, modify the permissions there.

    Regards

  • Open a command prompt in administrator mode .Then in command prompt type:

    net user administrator /active:yes

    This will enable the default Admin account. Now try the same. You may now create another user account with administrative privileges.

  • Is it the permission of that drive, or the permission of the folder you're moving into that has the problem (the destination)
