    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
    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.

    I use the Z10 and can download to my internal ssd drive .

    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 .

    afaik the int HD on the Z10 is readwrite able with FTP. activate FTP in the openwrt settings, and use filezilla? Of mount the z10 HD in your pc desktop with for example this adress.. ftp://192.168.x.xxx/sataa2/movies

    Hi. I'm new to android boxes but my experience can help someone.

    After reading lots reviews and forums I bought z10 box. I bought aswell crucial mx500 1tb ssd. First I connected ssd to internal sata but z10 don't see ssd. I disconnected and putted to USB 3.0 Hard Drive Enclosure, used laptop win7 and Ease Partition Master to make one big NTFS partition on ssd. Removed from enclosure and putted back to z10 internal sata. Power on box and z10 recognised ssd. First tried using transmission and manage to choose ssd for downloads but transmission was little hard to use for me. So downloaded utorrent from Aptoide and installed from usb pendrive. UTorrent have option to change download folder for ssd. And for now I can download on ssd and even preview downloading movie.
