Helen, I typed too quickly and missed one step.
" --- choose the column that says "Take Ownership." , should read " ---
choose AND CLICK the column that says "Take Ownership"

Hello Dave,
Don't be too harsh.Speaking from 1st person experience, the danger of
self-teaching is shaky foundation. Everything I know so far is by
reading, asking questions, experimenting. I knew what was sfc /scannow
and chkdsk before I knew how to copy/paste. What and how I learned was
not methodical and stage-by-stage. She could be in the same boat.
Empathy, my friend.

Hi Helen,

Panel.
