How to remove read-only attribute from Forza Motorsport 7 folder's in D:\WindowsApps?

 

When I turn it off, it just turns itself back on.  I need to restore my backup so I don't have to download all 100GB of the game again.

 

Thanks

If you're unable to edit a file or folder in Windows 10, here's how to take ownership and full permissions.

 

 

You may need to take ownership of the file first in order to change the read only properties and have the change stick.

I took ownership of the folder & used Acronis True Image to recover the Forza Motorsport 7 folders from my backup of C:\Program Files\WindowsApps to D:\WindowsApps.  Although after I did that & proceeded to install the game from the XBOX app, it didn't detect the recovered files/folders & is just installing it fresh.  Why?  Why can I recover to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps & the install detects the recovered files on the C:\ drive but not the D:\ drive?

 

*Update*

Got it working.  Took ownership of D:\WindowsApps, deleted the folder.  Created a new WindowsApps folder then recovered my Forza Motorsport 7 backup to the D:\WindowsApps location then installed the game on XBOX app on Windows 11 home edition x64.  At first it gave error messages, but at the bottom it said it was ready to play, so now it's working.

Just fixed it, the trick is setting the owner of the D:\WindowsApps to TrustedInstaller.

That makes a whole lot of sense! Thanks for sharing the resolution with the community.

By the way I don't recommend running Forza on a HDD because I was getting continuous hitching & stuttering while racing which is so annoying!  So I since installed the game on the C:\ drive & had to change the Owner again but this time it had to be entered like this : 

 

NT Service\TrustedInstaller

Thanks for the tip! I only use HDD's for file storage mainly. Cannot recall the last time I installed anything on a HDD. How times have changed.
