On the explorer you can right click the disk, properties, security tab, and allow full control for all users. For some reason Windows 10 considers you a regular user and not administrator by default. The other solution I found is using the built-in admin account. Kinda sucks because it doesn't let you log in with your Outlook account (not that it matters, really).
