Access denied to paths I have full rights on

Q: Access denied to paths I have full rights on

I used to have no problem running the following command:
DATE /T > x:\WEB\CASE1\LOG
TIME /T >>X:\WEB\CASE1\LOG
Then all I did is to move the LOG directory right into the WEB subdirectory,
and now, when I run DATE /T > x:\WEB\LOG, or TIME /T >>X:\WEB\LOG...I keep getting "access is denied".
This is total surprise for me, because:
(1)I have on X:\WEB\CASE1\LOG, the exact same full read/write/full control permissions I have
on X:\WEB\LOG.

-The server that hosts the X:\ path is a windows 2003 sp1 server running in an Active Directory environment.
I am part of the Administrators group on that server
-The client computers I am running both commands from are WinXP SP3 computers that I have local Admin rights on.
And of course, X:\ is a valid mapped drive (just pointing to the server. X:\ = \\servername\path).
And YES, I can create/delete files/directories on that x:\WEB\LOG path on which the 2 above commands fail with
the "access is denied" error.

I am running out of solutions (I even removed and re-created my file permissions rights over the denied path, but in vain. Any idea what could this be?
Thanks for your help

A: Access denied to paths I have full rights on

Check the share permissions in addition to the file permissions. Check the special permissions for any deny permissions as deny permissions supercede allow permissions.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 Intel Pentium running Windows XP  sp3 and have been getting tons of junk mail. I ran Avast, malware bytes &spybot. Nothing found. So I started looking through the Dell help on my computer. I'm not as savvy as I'd like to be and while trying to fix the issue myself I did something that I shouldn't have. First, I tried system restore to go back to a later date but it wouldn't let me no mater which date I tried. Then,I followed a suggestion regarding the registries. HUGE mistake! Now my computer is stuck in a boot loop. I obviously need to repopulate my hives but have no idea how. When the computer starts the Windows XP logo pops up. Then a box pops up saying lsass.exe access denied a proccess has requested access to an object, but has not been granted those access rights. When I click ok It restarts. The Dell logo pops up then the Windows XP logo and then the access denied again. Ive tried to start in last known good configuration. Safe mode. System restore. But, i keep ending back in the loop. So, I tried ordering some disks that I thought may be able to help while I've been reading through threads for information. I don't have any of the original software for this cop, I purchased it used a few years ago. But, I purchased a Knoppix 7.6.1., and system rescue from same CO, & 2 CDs off eBay Windows XP 64 bit & 32 bit as I wasn't sure which was the one I might need. But the were being sold as disks for this... Read more

A:lsass.exe Access Denied a process has requested access to an object, but has not been granted those access rights

Windows XP has reached end of life 2 years ago... It is an insecure Operating System and should no longer be used especially online.
The Dimension 2400 is weak hardware (Pentium 4 Processor, IDE hard drive, DDR RAM) from 2003! so 13 years old! Its not worthwhile running a modern Operating System on it and below minimum system requirements.
If on a budget you are best to buy a second hand OptiPlex 780 with a Windows 7 OEM license (which can be used for a free Windows 10 upgrade).

Hi,

I searched but could not find the answer to this question. I am on a pc running Windows XP 2002. I am using WPX3 when I get this error. I am connected to a Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. I get the error (not all the time, just sometimes) when I try to save a file to the server which is where all my client date is stored. Interestingly enough, when I save the file to my desktop on my pc, I do not get the error which appears to narrow it down to something with WP and the server.

I have administrator privileges on all the files I am saving so it is not a permissions problem or rights problem. I have uninstalled and reinstalled WPX3. I have deleted all temporary files. I have all updated patches from Corel. I have had my computer tech guy in here and he can't figure it out either. I even called and emailed Corel tech support and they can't fix it.

If anyone on this forum can fix it, I owe you lots of beer!

Hey!
All of a sudden yesterday, Steam started giving me error messages when trying to download or update games. They were saying: "An error occured when trying to install. (Disk write error)". I found out it was not only steam, but I also cant install programs or anything else on the drive. I'm talking about my second drive, where I store all my large files. My main one is a SSD dedicated to OS.

Anyway, digging into the problem I found out I can't give my self full rights to different folders on that drive, so I followed this tutorial. When finished, and everything still working I still get an error message! What the actual ****.

The box marked in red is the error I'm getting:

Hi.

I am running windows 7 ultimate and I have only one account (admin).
I have no trouble installing programs, running programs or copying files from different locations on my hard drive, but if I try to save a file in a program, I get the message, that I do not have permission to save in that location and that I have to contact the administrator to get permisson - but am I not the administrator?

E.g. I tried to save a document from word, but couldn't - I could only save it in my Documents folder... In some locations I got the message, that the client didn't have the neccesary rights to save the file in that location (I'm using danish language pack, so one of the pictures might not make much sense, but I've attached both messages anyway - the danish message says: C:\test.docx
The client is missing a neccesary right.)

I haven't had this problem all the time since I installed windows 7 ultimate, as far as I recall, so might be an update or something that is causing the problem, I don't know.

I have read some threads concerning admin rights, but haven't found anything that got rid of the problem, so hope someone can help me.. It is very frustrating not being able to save documents etc...

Hello, I have encountered a rather odd problem that didn't turn up in forum search.

System: Win7 Home Premium 32-bit, fresh install+updates (with AVG 2012 Free and Google Chrome as only other installs)

I have (had) 2 users both with admin rights. One was my 'main' user that I was using just to learn Win7 and surf a l'il. The other was completely new: Created, logged into, back off, then not touched again. For the first few days, had no problems and was really liking Win7. However, today after logging off main user (I had just run a full clean scan with AVG, btw) and switching to the fresh one, IMMEDIATELY after entering my log-in password, I received a UAC prompt telling me that this user does not have access to this folder. The background was replaced with a black screen, the taskbar icons were replaced with the standard "new file" icon and did not function (no surprise there.) I opened Windows Explorer using "Start > Computer" and again was immediately told I had no access. Gave myself permission and attempted to investigate. I could not view/open any folder without giving myself permission first.

Having no success determining the problem, I decided to simply log off and delete this account. Performed a full delete (folders and all.) Then, I created a new account with admin rights. Logged into it without incident. Logged back onto main user and opened Windows Explorer. The user folder from the original 2nd account remained and ... Read more

A:Account(admin rights) denied all access IMMEDIATELY upon log-in

Does Safe Mode function normally?
That is to say if you boot in safe mode are you able to perform basic functions and use the system to some extent?

If this is not a registry or av/security related problem the easiest fix would likely be SFC
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Some more specific detail of the nature of the problem and less of what you have done may be of assistance too.
If this is a problem with admin priveldges you are honestly probably better off doing a repair install
Repair Install
Than digging around trying to find the one setting responsible for the problem.
Component services and other various admin tools can get down right annoying to work with and can cause further problems if the least bit thing is set wrong.

Hello all

2 W7 PCs, Ultimate and Pro. The pro PC hosts work documents. I work on Ultimate and access/save on the Pro machine.

I had full access to everything at one point but upgraded the Ult to W10 and then back to W7 and now

My admin user name is on my PC and the Pro machine. Same exact name and password (checked it MULTIPLE times to be sure). User is admin on both PCs.

I have saved out the entire drive I'm trying to access with full rights and I've gone into the security tab and given as much rights as possible as well.

It just doesn't work correctly. I can print to pdf in certain directories and I can browse close to the entire drive but certain folders are inaccessible (no permission, contact admin) and some I can browse but can't save "would you like to save to your User folder instead?"

Yesterday, I deleted my user on the Pro PC, rebooted. I deleted the old User folders in explorer, rebooted I went into the shares and deleted the lingering 'unknown' user accounts, rebooted. I deleted all shares to my user name in computer management, rebooted, and simply shared the 2 drives I wanted to access and then added security rights, rebooted.

Thank God for SSDs cuz that's alot of rebooting!

A:W7 to W7 - home network - full rights: access but can't save

You can browse but not write?

- Are you sharing with Read/Write permission? Both NTFS permissions (Security tab) and Share permissions have to allow write.
- Network and Sharing Center - Advanced Sharing Settings - Password Protected Sharing On (then restart both PCs)
- See if you get read/write access now

I have kinda setup a network with my computer and a laptop which has just been formatted. It now has XP service pack 2 installed and I have to enter the password and username of an account on the laptop in order to access the resources.
Now I can access the laptop using my computer, when the laptop tries to access my computer, and tries to get a file, the message on the title always comes up.

I have unchecked simple file sharing and enabled full access (read/write) on the laptop whose account Im using. But it didnt work.

When opening my computer today, I have noticed a message about migration and program controls and some information about windows NT and windows 3.x This has never popped up and am wondering if this has made any changes to my computer not the laptop.

So Is there a simple way that does not restrict the laptop from getting the resources on my computer??

Did you look at the share permissions or the NTFS permissions? You have to have read and write on both in order to be able to do it. I am assuming your server is running NTFS Hdd's?

Hi

Ive stumbled across a problem that has been causing me grief for a few days now, every time I try to access my hard drive (C disk) it says, access is denied. Also, i cant edit permissions because I've lost admin rights. Ive tried many things including unlocking the system admin, this lets me access a few extra things like being able to use the sfc command in cmd, however, it doesn't allow me to access the C disk or change permission because it also has lost admin rights? I fear that this is a bad problem and I don't know how it happened. I have tried restoring to a previous date and that doesn't work either.

Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I loaded 8.1 (64 bit) on my machine a couple of weeks ago. All was well until I tried to run Belarc advisor and was informed I didn't administrative rights to my machine. So I began researching how to gain administrative rights. In a nutshell, every method I tried ended the same way . . . . I was told I could not do what I wanted to do because I didn't have administrative rights. The result is the same when I tried to enable the hidden administrator capability.

My profile was set up during installation and did not include administrative controls, just user stuff. My guts tell me my problem is related to my only profile being that of a simple user.

My question: is there any way to fix the problem and gain administrative control short of a complete reinstall of 8.1?

Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

A:8.1 Administrative Rights Denied

i have also installed windows 8.1 as you have done. i have not changed any profile.
if any operation needs administrative rights it will show a notice to that effect having 2 buttons continue cancel
just continue to do the operations.
you can try right click on cmd then you can see run as administrator . if it works then you have the rights.
if you have installed windows yourself and you are the only user you have all the rights.

A:Administrators Rights Denied

It sounds to me as if you are still running the original install of XP on this system...which, in itself, may be the problem.

That would seem to be the basis of the IBM recommendation that you contact the original owners from whom you purchased the drive.

A clean install of XP would eliminate all previous permissions, files, etc. which pertain to the original owners.

Do you have XP install and system driver CDs? Do you have a valid license for the XP install currently installed? Have you contacted IBM about the possibility of getting restore CDs?

Hello Tom!

On Windows 7 due to UAC restriction you have to launch the program as administrator i.e. Right click and Run as administrator. Certain folder you have to Take Ownership but don't change the permission for System files like Documents and Settings, Windows, System32 etc. it might even stop the system from booting. So use it wisely create a System Restore point before making changes. To create a Program shortcust with UAC prompt check this article Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create

Maybe why you cannot install it is the software is not Windows XP certified. You may be able to install it using Windows XP Compatibility Mode. Here's a link how to use it: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/learnmore/appcompat.mspx

When I try to run the .exe file to set up Skydrive, it gives me the above message. When I go to it's properties and select the Security tab, it shows the system and two administrators with full rights. If I deny full control to both administrators, the setup says I don't have permission to run it.

Kind of a catch 22.

Has anyone else encountered this? If so, what is the fix?

A:Skydrive can't be run with full administrative rights

Hello Wither,

You'll need to set permissions rights for the .exe file back to full control.

This may be a "Run as administrator" (elevated) issue instead.

Is your user account an elevated account (ex: built-in "elevated" Administrator account)? If so, try running the .exe from a normal unelevated administrator account instead.

Double check using step 7 in the tutorial below to make sure that the Run this program as an administrator box is unchecked in Compatibility Mode settings.
Compatibility Mode
In addition, do not use "Run as administrator" when you right click on the .exe.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

There are registry modifications that can give a user complete admin rights by default. I believe How To Geek has them.
 
Also, you can run explorer.exe using GivemePower which would grant system level rights to everything (higher than administrator).

Attempting to delete it, I ran into the same TrustedInstaller problem. I tried giving myself rights to do this, but I don't have rights to do that? And it doesn't say how to get rights?

Here, a screenshot of me trying to give myself full access and modification rights to the Wacom tablet app.

I have a nightmare situation. I allowed a Norton Level 2 Case Manager to connect to my system as the new version of Norton 360 (v22) causes major problems on your system. Word Doesn't work. Excel doesn't work. FF doesn't work. Chrome doesn't work. MSIE doesn't work. All because of a new "Feature" they call "Exploit Prevention" Anyway while he was connected one of the things he did was change my Administrator account. I'm really not sure what he did because he did it really fast and it made no sense. Even though the account was an administrator account he changed it to an administrator account. I didn't see how he did it exactly. But seriously that's exactly what he did. NOW however I NO LONGER seem to actually have administrator rights. I can't run many applications that I have been running ON THIS SYSTEM for about a year and a half. I can't for example download something to the root of my C drive which is where I typically download something until I use it and put it where it belongs. btw some apps will run if I right click and run as administrator but some just won't run at all anymore. One message I get is "A referral was returned from the server" I have no idea what that means it's not even a network type app. Other apps just don't start and the dialog box says "... has stopped working with check online for a solution or close the program.

A:Need Full Administrative Rights in Windows Vista

Answer Match 55.44%

Hi.

I am the only user on my system and there is only a single account. Control panel shows my account as having full administrator rights.

However, whenever I try to do literally anything, even the simplest operations like moving, deleting, or renaming a file, a prompt appears every time asking 'You will need to provide Administrator permission to do this' and I have to click a YES to go ahead.

The more annoying thing is that when I am using some software involving the above functions (renaming or over writing files) the operation completely aborts with an 'access denied' message.

Nobody uses this computer except me and I want to have full rights to do anything.

Thanks for help.

A:How can I have full 'Administrator rights' for my user account?

Hello Seymoria,

Administrator accounts do not run elevated by default for security purposes. This is done so that nothing on your PC will also be able to run elevated without you first getting a UAC prompt to approve it. Once you click on YES, then it runs elevated for only that session and instance.

It's not just about keep unauthorized users from running anything elevated, it's to prevent say malware from being able to run elevated without you knowing about it and it having full access to everything on your PC.

This is why it's not recommended to use the built-in elevated "Administrator" account for everyday use, but only as needed instead.

If you insist, then you could use the tutorial below to elevate the privilege level of all administrator accounts to be the same as the built-in Administrator account to have full access. Just be warned, that everything that runs while you are signed in will also have the same unrestricted rights.

Recently purchased a new HP Workstation Laptop, with XP Pro. When I set it up I made myself an administrator. However when I show all the system folders etc. and go to delete items out of the Cookies folder the program I'm using crashes (have used Explorer nad PowerDesk both crash) and Windows gives me an error message. This is something I'm able to do on my work computer (IE8 doesn't do a good job of deleting cookies and temp internet folders) with no problem, yet on my new laptop I can't delete these. I ran Windows update and it installed several updates including several different patches to .NET framework versions. Could this be the problem? or is it something in the additional software that HP has loaded? I don't seem to have this problem on my work computer of which I'm and administrator - only the laptop which is not joined to any domain etc.

Hi Lord Chaos -

Welcome back to TSF.

There is no way to elevate an existing account to full (2-token) "hidden" account level. If you want to activate the hidden Administrator account - and so named -

Goto an Elevated command prompt & type:

Net user administrator /active:yes

To turn it off - change yes to no. Please be careful - and do not demote or delete your existing admin account.

I guess this may be a tiny bit off the subject here, but I am attempting this in windows 7.

I have a program file manager tool called 'Directory Opus' that is capable of calling windows external programs and passing them the current directory the file manager is sitting on.

So far so good.

Now I want to call a cygwin (linux/unix emulator for windows) terminal with that file manager.

Checking properties on the cygwin Icon I got the path: C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -

So it is a path to a command and an argument to that command.

Actually I guess it is 2 arguments to a command since I think '-' in that position means to feed anything on STDIN to the command. At least that would be true in unix shell programming.

So using the Directory opus setup I pass this call:
'@async:C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico - <and here add {s}>'

So the call ends up:
'@async:C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico - {s}'

That call does just what it is supposed to. It passed the current file absolute address however cygwin terminal does not understand the windows path notation. If I were passing it: C:\subdir\blah\ It would just say 'No such file' Cygwin terminal wants to see /cygdrive/c/subdir/blah Or at least I think that is what is happing.

So to cut to the chase.... I'd like to put a little wrapper to Cygwin terminal in there with the code necessary to convert 'C:\subdir\blah\' to '/cygdrive/c/subdir/blah/'

But, I do not know how ... Read more

Since installing Windows 8, I have been having sporadic problems with access denied. Examples follow:

PIMEX is a Personal Information Manager that I have been using through several generations of Windows. When I first converted to Windows 8, this program worked with no problems. Now, however, when I try to open the program, I get the message "PIMEX database could not be opened. Error message: permission denied". If I use the Control Panel to uninstall the program, and then reinstall the program, I am able to open it normally and work with it and use all functions. Once I close the program, however, and try to open it again, I once again get permission denied.

PaperPort is a program that manages scanned images. The program can scan either photos or text documents. If text is selected, the program creates a PDF file that the user names. These scanned files are then stored in PaperPort folders. When I try to display one of these files, PaperPort invokes PDF Viewer Plus (included with the package), and I get the message access denied. If I try to use the Windows 8 Reader to display the file, I get a "Sorry, can't display this file message". Likewise, I cannot display the file using Adobe software.

Good morning,I have a system that has had numerous issues, mainly virus related. I have cleaned the system, and show no virus activity... but I'm still having issues.Late last week the system was stuck in a loop, it wouldn't boot to Windows at all (no safe mode, no normal mode). I resorted to a Windows repair from the install disk. It worked... to a certain degree. I am now able to get into Windows, but can not open IE and I can not install a display driver.I am unable to access Windows Update, but was able to set automatic updates to install lots of updates including SP3, but I am still unable to make any changes.Initially when I attempted to open IE I would get a window saying that IE had to close instantly. I attempted to reinstall IE, and I attempted to install a newer version of IE. Neither worked. If I chose to install the updates with the install I would get an access denied error, if I chose not to install the updates with the install it would look like it worked, but now when I click on IE I get "Error loading C:\WINDOWS\System32\inetcpl.cpl. The operating system cannot run %1"In device manager, I have no drivers installed on my display adapter. If I try to update it, it looks like it's going to install... but then I get "Cannot install the hardware. Access is Denied".Any assistance or insight into this would be appreciated.

Hi, everyone,

I'm mostly a Linux guy these days, so I'm no longer clued up about even simple Windows issues. Bear with me.

I have one PC running Vista (home basic), one running XP (professional) and one running Windows 7 (home basic). There is a printer connected to the Vista box, which is shared.

On the XP box I can both see and use the printer on the Vista box (i.e. a "net view \\vistabox" shows the printer, and under "printers and faxes" I can install and use it).

On the Windows 7 box, however, I can see the Vista box (i.e. a "net view" shows it in the list of available PCs on the network) but a "net view \\vistabox" gives me an "access denied" error.

The Windows 7 machine has a password on it, the Vista and XP machines don't. All machines are on the same workgroup name (which is "WORKGROUP"). On the XP box I don't need a password to access the shared printer on the Vista machine; it just works.

Extensive Googling has failed to render enlightenment, nor has browsing this forum. I'm sure it has something to do with security and passwords, somewhere, somehow, but I have no idea in which direction to look for it, let alone fix it. I have also read some things about workgroups and homegroups not being the same in Windows 7, but I'm not sure if this is correct (and if so, relevant).

All suggestions on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated!

And yet quite possibly another no brainer for you all, I work on a large number of machines for family and friends, mostly 2000 or XP Home and Pro and to be quite honest with you I am not sure what the best way to connect to these machines would be, what I mean is I am soooooo tired of setting up a machine in my shop, running up stairs to my primary machine to either get in remotly or tap into the c:\ drive of the other machine only to realize that I do not have permition, or I do not remember the computer name, or I do not have the password, or I can not log on as the "guest". Do you know what I mean? I get so frustrated when I get the "Access Denied" message. it seems to me I spend more time trying to get into these machines than I do reparing them. So I guess my question would be, once I have the machine setup what is the FASTEST way for me to gain access to that machine from another machine? Lets just focus on XP and 2000, Do I really have to setup a user first to gain access? or is there a quicker way. Thanks.

Here's my situation. I have two account in which which one is named Admin and the other is named Danny. One account was an administrator user, and the other, a standard user. Recently, I accidentally changed the administrator user to a standard user and now I am stuck with two standard users. I cannot access some files, change settings on my computer, download things, remove programs, etc. Help!

I've done some research beforehand and people say to try and access the true administrator by typing "net user administrator /active:yes" into the command prompt after you run it as an administrator, but all it gives me is "System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied."

I think the first step is to go to the McAfee site and download their removal tools and run them. Then see if you need to do anything else after rebooting. Many security programs leave bits and pieces when they are just uninstalled via the control panel.

After several months of Windows 7's working pretty well on my new computer, I now am getting a raft of "access denied" notices. Since I'm the owner of the computer and the only one who uses it, and the one who sent money to Redmond for the OS, this sort of ruffles my feathers.

Somehow I have ended up with *two* choices when the computer starts--an account name that I created (call it "me") and the one that was there when the computer was delivered with Win 7 installed ("them"). I have gone into Properties for both accounts and tried to open access to everyone who uses the computer (meaning me), but I still get "Access denied" when trying to open such files as "C:/Users/"them" (or "me")/Application Data. But the program still says "Access denied." At one point it offered a way to change "Access denied," and when I tried it, it said "Access denied." Catch-22 lives on.

I have the 64-bit version of Windows 7, with SP 1.

To top everything off, I would like very much to get rid of the "them" choice at startup and use only the one I designated. For one thing, the "them" name is idiotic (AMDMULTI). I'd sure appreciate some help, short of a reformat.

A:A basic question about access rights

Welcome, Fred!

Concerning sharing access - I learned not long ago that you must not only make the adjustments in the "sharing" tab when you go to "properties", but also check the permissions in the "security" tab. Make sure that group or username "everyone" has full control in the security options tab. This applied to access to other folders & drives - I assume you can do it with user accounts. I could be wrong.

As far as the other user account - go to Control Panel > User Accounts and delete the AMDMULTI account.

Hi mates, i've just set up my first VPN server with IPSEC security. I looks like everything works perfect, but I've found a security "issue". I don't know if that's how it works or maybe I've left something in the configuration.

The matter is that if I connect to the vpn just with the domain user name and I try to access to any shared folder, it uses the local administrator account to access. But if I connect with DOMAIN\user it uses the domain user credentials and can't access for example to a \\hostname\c$ folder, that's the way I would like it to work.

Is there any way to force it to only use the domain user?

The problem is that we have to give access to our lan to another client, which probably have admin rights locally and we can't let him use admin rights in our lan.

What can i do??

Thanx mates

Control panel is located in Apps unless you have modified it to appear in Start or task bar, or both.

go to user accounts in control panel, select your own account, make sure its admin, if not do this to yours too - then go to the other account and manage account - click on change account type.

I have noticed sometimes - eg: if I am mving a pic or file from my account to my wifes or daughters, a window pops up and says I need admin rights - bloody idiot - I am admin!! I just click try again and it works.

What I have done also if you are only user eg: no kids. Is go into cpanel and type in search 'uac' and switch off the uac control. (pull slider right down) Thats the box that keeps coming up asking if you are sure you want to do this. I found it quite annoying but thats just me

I am having trouble assigning rights to folder and subfolders, even with an Admin account. It seems I have to go to every subfolder and every file to be able to change the rights. (It's a USB thumdrive and I used a laptop to assign all rights to that laptop account).

There must be an easy and non-time consuming way to do this.

Thanks.

A:How to assign access rights to subfolders

NTFS permissions should always automatically cascade down the folder tree - unfortunately this does not always happen.

USB thumb drives are notorious for this as they are likely to contain files Owned by, and hold permissions for, many different user IDs, from multiple systems.

In order to reset the drive to the current system they are attached to what I have done in the past is ....
Take ownership of the root of the drive.
Remove all existing permissions on the root folder.
Set the new required permissions on the root folder.
Manually propagate the permissions to the rest of the folder tree.

The facilities for this are found on the advanced tab in the security /permissions tab.

Unfortunately sometimes even this method will fail on some especially complex permissions sets and these may need to be treated as separate sub trees

Trying to share folders with specific users of multiple machines with full R/W access but share them with others as only Read. Ex. MOM, DAD Full access, KID1, KID2 Read only.

I have this up an working between the two machines (with Homegroup turned off) and am happy with it. I have specifically granted access to the folders in question to MOM & DAD. I planned to then turn on Homegroup and manage all other sharing there through sharing "Libraries".

As soon as I created and joined Homegroup, it appears to have revoked MOM & DAD access to that folder.

Does the homegroup overide the workgroup sharing levels? If anyone can shed light on this I'd appreciate it. I like the simplicity of Libraries and Homegroup the more I use it. It's pretty clean and simple IMO.

A:Do Homegroup Access Rights OVERRIDE Workgroup?

I've been re-producing the issue for the last hour or so and this is what I've found:

When homegroup is created (on Tower PC) - No Problem
When laptop joins homegroup - Access to Tower is overridden
Windows Credential changes to: Username: \\Tower\HomeGroupUser$

Once this happens, it seems to stay in force even when the individual acounts leave the homegroup. The only way I found to correct it is to completely end the homegroup on all machines. Then, my Workgroup access seems to be back, usually takes a re-login from the laptop to the Tower.

I know of the place in Advanced Sharing to "Allow Win to manage homegroup connections" vs "Use user acct and pw to connect". I'm hesitatnt to do this just becasue I WANT to use Homegroup/Library sharing for vast majority of families sharing. I was just trying to manage some exceptions, like not risk the kids destroying the Family data storage or keeping some special directories strictly limited to MOM & DAD.

Homegroup seems like an all or nothing tool. Sure hope this is not the case. Please advise if anyone has ideas what would fix this. Thanks all.

ok, this is the weirdest thing microsoft did to me in my years using windows. I own a windows 7 ultimate license 64 bit got through my MSDN-AA account, this evening, after a restart, i lost ALL rights on all the files i have in my main (and only administrator) account. in the rights tab in the property i see that every sign is missing, but i can't add them beacue, you know what, i don't have rights to change rights on my stuff, yes!!

that's completely crazy, i'm really regretting i dind't move to ubuntu due to that couple of stuff i need that run only on this microsoft thing. it's really not possible i can't access none of my files and documents, i have 300gb of work them! i also tryied to access them via another administrator account i created now.. i was thinking about moving away the hdd and/or trying to pass by a live of some linux distros...


any tips?

A:BIGGEST bug ever. lost all access rights on my files

Hi noblex and welcome to Sevenforums.

Can you try to take ownership of the folder where the files you have lost access to are located.
Take Ownership Shortcut

Then try to see if you can change the permissions
Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups
