  2. Windows 10 Photos Permissions Error

    Hi,

    To assist you better, I would like to know whether you are signed in as administrator.

    I would like to inform you that it could be better, if you sign in as administrator and check if the issue persists.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if you are able to take the full control of the folder or files.

    • Right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.
    • Click the Security tab.
    • Under Group or user
      names
      , click your name to see the permissions you have.
    • The permissions for the selected user or group are shown in the lower portion of the properties dialog box.
    • Assign yourself “Full control” permission by checking the box for “Allow” for Full Control and check if you can access the drive.
    If the issue still persists, follow the below steps.

    1. Type UAC or User Account Access on the search bar.

    2. From UAC window, I suggest you to bring down the level to default and check if it helps.

    Hope the information helps in resolving the issue related to the folder permissions. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.

  3. xp ntfs permissions erased - help!

    NEVER, ever, remove FULL CONTROL permissions in the Access Control Lists/rights priveleges from:

    • Administators Group
    • YOUR local Administrator User
    • SYSTEM
    on NTFS rights on your disks (via Explorer.exe rightclick properties menu, security tab) that use that filesystem, OR in the REGISTRY either, via rightclick on HIVES/KEYS permissions popup menu options...

    (Sure way to lock yourself out, period, & I have done it myself early on w/ NTFS filesystems &/or the Registry before... only way to learn sometimes, is making mistakes!)

    * Keep this in mind, those of you that start experimenting w/ security @ these 2 levels!

    APK

    P.S.=> Leaving them @ FULL POWER, in both areas, usually 9/10 times allows you to get back into your rig (logging on as your LOCAL ADMINISTRATOR USER, to fix it), & make alterations to rights/acl's as needed, to "get it right", eventually... especially when you're still learning/experimenting! apk

  4. How to assign permissions to local security groups in Windows 10?

    Is this comment regarding NTFS Permissions backwards or is it just me?

    So, I'm studying for the CompTIA A+ Core 2 exam and I get this explanation about how NTFS Permissions work. Here it is:

    "Both NTFS and share permissions can be assigned to users and groups."

    It sounds a little bit backwards to me. Does one actually assign NTFS and share permissions to users and groups? Or is it more accurate to say that users and groups can be assigned to NTFS and Share permissions?

    The users and the groups get added to ACL lists. NTFS permissions do not get added to users or groups.

    I'm not trying to be a grammar nazi here. I understand what they're trying to teach. But having taken logic in the past I know that you can't just swap word positions interchangeably in every circumstance and not affect the meaning of the sentence.

    Am I right or wrong here?

    Windows local security policies work in much the same way. I used to think that users and groups had local security policies attached to the users or the groups. But it's the other way around. Users and Groups are assigned to security policy rules.
