    So multiple issues here, including the SysInfo utility. (When I download Sysinfo utility, I get a "Parameter incorrect" error.)

    Running Windows 10, not sure what else I can tell without SysInfo utility.

    A few months back I posted an issue with my drives on another account (I have more space on the D: drive instead of the C: drive, but I can't really use it). Because of these space issues I moved steam over to the D: drive and now I'm getting "missing file privileges" when I attempt to update a game.

    So far I've had these issues with Verdun, Europa Universalis 4 and Kerbal Space Program. Moving the install to the C: drive seemed to fix the issues with Verdun and Kerbal Space Program.

    Before moving KSP to the C: drive some files were undeletable even with unlocker.
