    Deny Access To Folder and Files


    Hi,

    I want to deny total access to the folder, its subfolders and its contents. There are many files in the folder. But only the folder is processed. What is wrong with this command line?

    icacls "C:\Users\John\Pictures\Folder" /deny "John"Deny Access To Folder and Files :(RX,W) /t /c

    I even tried :

    icacls "C:\Users\John\Pictures\Folder" /deny "John"Deny Access To Folder and Files :(F) /t /c
    error says :
    Successfully processed 1 files; Failed processing 1 files

    :)

    Destination Folder Access Denied

    Hi,

    There are times that you may run into the issue of being unable to open or access or work with files and folder. The common message that flashes on your computer screen when you try doing so reads: "Access Denied."

    This can occur for one or more of the following reasons:

    • The folder ownership may have changed.
    • You do not have the proper permissions.
    • The file may be encrypted.
    • The file may be in use.
    • The file may be corrupt.
    • The user profile may be corrupt.
    To resolve this issue, the first step is to run CHKDSK. It detects and fix disk corruption. To run CHKDSK, follow these steps:

    • Press Win+X.
    • Select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the window that opens enter your CHKDSK command.
    Get back to us to if you need further assistance.

    To understand the issue better, I would need more information from your end.1. Is the issue specific with a particular folder?

    Denied access to files

    Yeah, that's "fun". Installed Vista on another HDD and it wouldn't let me delete the old one in the other, just access is denied. Changing the owners wasn't enough tho, had to do that, inherit all the rights from parent folder and then give full rights to my self on that folder *Smile Deny Access To Folder and Files :)
