    Deleting/Changing File Permission Issue


    Deleting/Changing File Permission Issue [​IMG]I recently tried deleting two folder duplicates and found out that I needed permission to delete these folders from TrustedInstaller. I searched up ways to do so, but i got stuck when I encountered the window that mentions ‘Object Name’ and such. I was confused on what that means and what I have to do, any suggestions?

    :)

    File permissions to delete file


    This command restores permissions to default for all files contained within C:\ quietly.

    Followed by this command once completed:

    Code: icacls "c:\" /t /c /q Administrators:f[/quote] This command restores full permissions to the Administrators on the computer, which I presume you are an Administrator.

    And reboot the computer, and finally attempt to delete the file after attempting to retake ownership.

    If that does not work, then I suggest using a third party utility known as UnlockIT:
    Downloads - UnLock IT

    And download, install. Ensure you select customized installation.

    Right click the folder that contains the files or the files individually that you would like to delete, and follow as here:

    Then this should delete all files you right clicked upon after restarting the system.

    You should not run into issues regarding permissions after this, and if you do, post again and I'll look into it.

    Side note: often times malware tends to hijack a system and fluff itself in permissions that benefit itself.[/quote] I am trying this, but it's taking a very long time.

    File permissions to delete file


    Windows is extremely confusing in its permissions and file ownership.*Sad

    If Taking Ownership of the files does not work, then the ACL and permissions are misconfigured.

    Permissions precedes the ownership, you can have ownership but incorrect permissions in accordance with the ACL Access Control Lists (Windows).

    Microsoft - How Permissions Work

    I suggest that you open powershell (Search > type powershell > Right click > run as admin) and execute this command:

    Code: icacls "C:" /t /c /q /RESET[/quote] This command restores permissions to default for all files contained within C:\ quietly.

    Followed by this command once completed:

    Code: icacls "c:\" /t /c /q Administrators:f[/quote] This command restores full permissions to the Administrators on the computer, which I presume you are an Administrator.

    And reboot the computer, and finally attempt to delete the file after attempting to retake ownership.

    If that does not work, then I suggest using a third party utility known as UnlockIT:
    Downloads - UnLock IT

    And download, install. Ensure you select customized installation.

    Right click the folder that contains the files or the files individually that you would like to delete, and follow as here:
