Both drives mount fine, but when i open the windows 10 partition or the 4th hard drive, i get a pop up saying i dont have permission to access the drive (I can see the folder folders behind the pop up). Fast boot is disabled on windows 10, there is no kind of password protection on windows. and there's nothing that ever runs on the 4tb drive.

I tried Manjaro KDE since i had the installer already burned and what I use on my main computer it had no problem opening these drives, so something is up with linux mints default settings and this computer . Is there a fix for this so user accounts have permission for read/write access to all monted drives partitions? (this computer is for someone not familiar with linux,
