  1. Cannot access / add or change permission on Lock Icon on Files / Folder


    Hi Microsoft Support Team,


    I have a recent problem with my files and folders, wherein some of my files have a lock icon.

    The drive is not encrypted but the files are.


    Even though I have admin access on the computer and files when I tried to open the file it prompts an error that I dont have permission to view the file.
    Kindly help to advise, thank you.

    See attached images.


    FYI:
    [1] From the file property the option "Encrypt contents to secure data" is greyed out.

    [2] I already tried the method in this link https://windowsreport.com/error-0x80071771/ but it doesn't work

  2. Appended icon in some files in Win7

    Ah LMAO

    Now i think what's it is

    The Admin account Im on has denied permissions of access for other users (cannot access folder lists, no reading no writting)

    But I can others.

    Some of the Fraps Movies I moved from C:/ other_user ... to D: ... but D is public for everyone. (games/data)

    But still why the heck do encoded files retain that ... it's weird.

    EDIT: There should be some win7 article on this, there should be more of these variants. But there's no LOCK icon on the folders either.

    Also I found the LOCK icon to be kind of stupid ... when you have access it's shown as "locked" but when you dont have access it's not shown at all.

    Yes the permissions are retained for other_user , it's denied and I also can't seems to remove that ... Ah these inherited permissions, need to move em around ... but need to wait to complete first.
