Windows 8.1 : administrator account has access denied to other partitions

Date Published: 12/26/2013 8:53 PM

UAC is activated for the administrator.
With Windows 8 everything is okay.
After the upgrade to 8.1 the administrator account is denied to access the every partions except the one containing Windows, Users, Programs, etc.

The message is the same than when a regular user is denied to access whatever folder.
It is impossible to see and change ownership and permissions.

Same error for every user belonging to the Administrator group. Even a user created for the test after the upgrade.

When we desactivate UAC for the administrator, access is okay.
But then we can no longer perform some actions. So UAC is important for us.
