    I messed up folder ownership off Appdata


    Hi,

    I messed up bad. I changed the Folderownership of the user/appdata folder and checked the apply to all subfolders mark.

    The consequences are are as you can imagine quite bad. Programs can't access their settings, the os itself is freaking out, can't acces system repair, ...

    What would my best approach be without a fresh install? Can I find an overview of what the proper ownership would be somewhere?

    Thx in advance for the help

    :)
