    Can access some user files after reloading Windows 10 Pro


    I just reloaded Win 10 on a new SSD drive, but after that, I can't read some of the old user files, saying that I have no access rights. Some allow me to go through after I clicked "continue as Adminstrator", but a couple just won't

    The files are ok, and readable when I rebooted on the old Win 10.

    Please help.

    :)

    I had to reload Windows 10 on my PC. During that process my Recipe Keeper Pro was removed. How do I reinstall it? Where do I access the file to do this?

    All Microsoft Apps and Functions Not Working

    Hi Greg,

    I reloaded Windows 10 using the media creation tool, keeping my old files and apps. Now I cannot log into my account. I get this message "User profile service service failed the sign-in user profile cannot be loaded." I can, however, access a second user
    account which will connect to the store appears to be fully functional. Is there some way I can have this other account my docs and apps?

    Thanks

    Thanks, following that, I manage to get hold of the top level folder, but none of the sub-folders even though I ask for the ownership change to be rippled through, and there are like a hundred different subfolders at different level. For the one I tried, when I reached the file level, I don't seem to change the file permission.

    Looks like it is going to be a long process.

    Any other ideas.

    Perhaps if there is a way to relinquish ownership by the previous owner, if I switch back to the other Win 10 on the system?

    Hi,

    This should solve it all in one go:

    Download and install this:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=23510

    Then copy this into notepad and save as a .bat (batch) file. Right click that and run as administrator. Make sure you have administrator rights when logged on.

    @echo off
    title Resetting ACLs...
    cd /d "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
    echo.
    echo Resetting ACLs...
    echo (this may take several minutes to complete)
    echo.
    echo ==========================================================================
    echo.
    echo System Drive...
    subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    echo.
    echo.
    echo Windows Directory...
    subinacl /subdirectories %windir%\*.* /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    echo.
    echo.
    echo ==========================================================================
    echo.
    echo FINISHED.
    echo.
    echo Press any key to exit . . .
    pause >NUL


    When all that is done you should be able to access your files in the usual way. You can uninstall subinacl.msi afterwards if you like.

    Cheers, *Wink

    Can access some user files after reloading Windows 10 Pro

    Thanks a lot. You know what, after what I said yesterday, today, after starting up the system, everything comes good. Windows do behave in a funny way, at least not something that I understand.

    Thanks for your efforts, I shall try it when I hit the next batch of folders that are having the same problem. Do I run this under the original Wind 10 or the newly installed Win10?

    cheers

    Hi,

    You run it on the system that causes these troubles.

    Good to see it seems to have "cured" itself though.
