  2. Can't Delete Corrupted File - All Permissions Removed

    So I have a file in my downloads that somehow got corrupted and all the permission information on the file is gone. I can't delete as it says I need permission to delete it. When I try to forcefully delete it through cmd as administrator, I get "Access denied". I've tried using an unlocker tool as well as taking ownership of the file but everything has failed.

    Any other suggestions?

  3. Need permission from myself to delete a folder but I can't get it


    Thanks. I'll try File Assassin next time.

    In this case I can't remember every single step I took, but one thing I did was to change the ownership of the folder in the security advanced settings from myself to myself and to apply that to all subfolders and files. This ensured that all files and subfolders had the same ownership as the parent. I also had to disable inheritance for my user permissions so that the permissions for the folder I was trying to delete were independent of the parent folder. Then it worked.
