Unable to delete files ("File Access Denied")

Recommended Posts

I am running a clean install of Windows 10 v1903.

 

I installed Metro Exodus from the Xbox app and the default installation location is:

 

C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\DeepSilver.ProjectWindfall_1.0.10.0_x64__hmv7qcest37me

 

I had to give myself permission to access the 'WindowsApps' folder (which is frustrating).

 

I gave myself permission and found the two video files I want to delete (to skip the intro videos on startup) but I'm getting:

eb_permission1.thumb.png.bb709e3683486e6b823b37b9bd569ef7.png

 

I've tried to give myself permission to the files themselves but I get:

 

eb_permission2.thumb.png.39046b9db00fbf72d09bf0f12c265839.png

 

When I click 'Advanced', I get:

 

eb_permission3.thumb.png.fd062b8354570bd8f7ca4c2758a36896.png

 

When I click 'Continue', I get:

 

eb_permission4.thumb.png.52bbccfe4ba9086d173b507c7dfefc07.png

 

Any idea how I can simply delete the files?

Try running this from an elevated Powershell:

 

Get-AppxPackage *ProjectWindfall* | Remove-AppxPackage

That uninstalls the program, doesn't it?

I just want to delete two files:

My bad, yes that does uninstall the game.

 

One of the problems with UWP games  (from the Microsoft Store) is that they are difficult to modify. You may need to take ownership of the files and then grant yourself Full Control in order to delete them. Though I don't know what that might do to the game.

If that's the case, I'll stick with Steam going forward.

Try this: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3841-add-take-ownership-context-menu-windows-10-a.html it sounds like that might be the problem you are having.

I installed that reg file and used it on the DeepSilver.ProjectWindfall_1.0.10.0_x64__hmv7qcest37me folder.

 

I get:

Here's an idea, replace them with dummy files 😛 You might have to reboot to safe mode to do it.

could just bypass Microsoft NTFS and UWP permissions by booting into a linux live disc/usb and delete the files from there :)

 

as said above though I'm not sure if deleting random files from a UWP would corrupt the package or cause other issues or not.

Reboot to safe mode could work if that is still in the latest version.

 

Try not to be upset. The Windows 10 App Store is designed to be a secure sandbox type thing same as Apple or Google. You would do the same if given responsibility for an App Store.

 

But it is Windows, so the Power and The Glory is all yours in the end. There will be a way to do exactly what you want.

 

Boot NTFS write capable Linux from a stick sure sounds fast and easy....

Safe mode still exists:

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12376/windows-10-start-your-pc-in-safe-mode

 

Would probably still need to adjust permissions for which no solution was ever determined in this thread:

 

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-files/windows-10-apps-folder-permission-to-copy-and/fcb7db14-3c19-4ad4-8fb1-b0df85e265a9?auth=1&page=2

 

But it contains this "Sledgehammer"

 

1- Open Prompt as administrator (type 'prompt' on search / right button click on it / open as admin)
2- Backing up permitions. Type (or copy / paste) this inside prompt:
Icacls "% ProgramFiles% \ WindowsApps" / save "% TEMP% \ WindowsApps.acl" / Q
3- Taking ownership. Type (or just copy / paste) this:
Takeown / F "% ProgramFiles% \ WindowsApps" / R
4- Taking 'full control' permissions. Type (or just copy / paste) this:
Icacls "% ProgramFiles% \ WindowsApps" / setintegritylevel H [igh] / grant "% username%": F / Q / T

OK pretty sure answer is in here:

 

Note that rather than delete it will be far easier to copy something else there with the same name.

 

Note also that if it screws up most likely you will be able to restore Apps working again on your computer but always a chance that won't repair...

 

https://superuser.com/questions/940693/editing-creating-files-in-c-program-files-windowsapps

 

"The WindowsApps folder is one of the most heavily protected folders in Windows 10. It contains all the Windows UWP apps, to which Microsoft zealously guards the access. The protections on this folder may change across Windows versions. The usual methods of taking ownership and assigning permissions are not enough for this folder, but are still required as first step to gaining access. After executing them, accessing the folder is now possible for copying, but editing is still blocked. To edit, one needs to save the file elsewhere, and only then replace the original with the edited version."
