    in Z10 all apps fail to gain writing access permission to HDD
    I have also x10 and never had a problem with HDD writing access permission
    but in z10 apps can not copy or download anything to the HDD, that makes z10 useless in this current buggy state. please fix this major bug.

    Just purchased a Z10 updated to 1.7.8 and having the same issue on hard drive installed. i can access usb drive (thumbstick). Need help changing the permission on the internal hard drive. access denied.

    i solved it by formatting the drive on the PC. lost all my data, but i'm happy it all works great now.

    I can confirm that this problem is still there in firmware v2.1.22, I installed all the file explorers available:
    es file explorer
    Root explorer
    Astro file manager
    x-plore
    file commander
    Solid explorer
    FX file explorer

    and not a single one could handle the external storage in Z10. None of them was able to delete/copy/move any file to the attached hard drive.
    I was following this thread since I bought the z10 and I thought they will be fixing this issue in the next update but unfortunately they did not. to be honest I am thinking about returning my Z10, I might get X10 instead.

    For now use media explorer until a fix arrives .
    Going to an X10 is like going backwards as such .

    Thats what i use for now .

    I have both but I'm only using x10 now. just keeping my z10 in its new box till they fix this.
    I can not blame any one who is thinking of returning it, what is the point of paying extra money for the z10 if you cant use the hard drive.
    you can't even use your browser to download a small file to your hard drive. that is unacceptable.

    apart from the those 2 preloaded basic apps the media explorer and the internet browser which come with it, not a single 3rd party app like file managers, browsers, downloaders can write to the hard drive. unacceptable for a $300 device

    I avoid loading bloat wear on these boxes like the plague ......
    But id imagine a firmware update will address this issue shortly .
