    Folder Access Denied - OK after 'Take Ownership' - but ... why ?


    Got an Access Denied error on 1 specific folder.

    1) went through [Run] lusrmgr.msc steps
    then also
    2) went through secpol.msc steps

    error still remained

    3) applied "Take Ownership" registry setting and took ownership of the folder.
    Everything is okay now.

    BUT...
    whilst the issue is solved, the 'WHY" still puzzles me.

    a) I took a screenshot of Properties->Security of the 'Access Denied'-folder before the take ownership
    and after take ownership (see 'A')
    Administrators (DESKTOP-xxxxx\Administors) was added

    b) I took a screenshot of some random other folder on another drive (see screenshot B)
    the Owner of the folder after 'take ownership' - my name and email address
    the Owner of the random other folder - Administrators (DESKTOP-xxxxx\Administors)

    Before the 'Take Ownership'-action, when checking out the properties->security

    and after clicking on the the [Continue] button there, I got an error:
    "You do not have permission to view this object's security properties, even as an administrative user."

    Appreciate views
    Hopefully Microsoft will fix this in their upcoming SP (there are so many endless exchanges on this)

  3. Windows 10 file access

    If you're getting access denied error when accessing the files/folders, you may need to take ownership of the files/folders and assign yourself necessary Permissions. See Take
    Ownership of a File or Folder
    .
