    Cant take ownership


    So my problem started when i was on my steam and i was downloading a game onto my (DCant take ownership :) drive, it gave me a error message saying folder not writable. I narrowed the problem down to making steam folder in my (DCant take ownership :) drive not read only, but every time i try to, i get an error message saying; failed to enumerate objects in container, access is denied. so I then did research on this issue and found i could take ownership or the folder, after i try this i get another access denied error. ive tried looking at alot of different website trying to find a potential fix but nothing works. ive tried some cmd lines and disabling UAC any help is good help

    :)

  2. Take Ownership

    I'm the admin on the computer but win 10 is not giving me full access.

    For example: Notepad.

    Windows allows me to take ownership of the file but will not allow me to have FULL access rights. How do I fix this? thanks

  3. Take ownership

    Hi Marko,

    The issue you're experiencing with pasting files under Program Files might be due to a variety of reasons, and that is what we are going to find out. To help us identify the cause of this issue, we would need to know the following information:

    • Is your device connected to a domain?
    • What type of files are you trying to paste into Program Files?
    • Are you getting the same issue to all of the files you're trying to paste into Program Files or the issue is isolated with specific files?
    • What error message are you getting when you are trying to paste files under Program Files?
    • Have you made any changes to your device before this issue happened?
    • Are you having the same issue even when using other user profiles?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Looking forward to your response.

    Cant take ownership

    What did you try exactly? You need to take ownership and then give yourself authority.

    From an elevated command prompt this should work - copy it just as it is - don't replace %USERNAME% with your name or anything: Code: takeown /f "D:\Steam" /r icacls "D:\Steam" /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%"Cant take ownership :(F) /t[/quote] If it doesn't work please say what error it gives with a screenshot if possible.
