Not worth persisting with to protect your actual-data then, just because one thing got blocked?
A big part of the hate directed at 8/8.1/10, a big part of the reasons given why people resist switching to secure OS's etc etc is that it "breaks their workflow".
People tend to hate things that make their jobs harder. Many also like a new feature and want to use it, but until they get the time to get it working right they turn it off.
Somtimes time is worth more than faffing about with MS settings and fighting yet another change to the way Windows works. Also why I use Mate instead of other systems - I like functions Gnome2 had which were removed in 3.
