  1. Lost access ownership of all folders after Factory reset


    Before Factory Reset: I was running Windows 10 on a Local User account


    Then I did a factory reset removing everything in C: drive. Resetting got stuck at 99% so I had to force restart but everything was fine.


    After Factory Reset: I created a new user account by logging in with my Microsoft account.


    Problem: I lost ownership of every folder on other drives.

    :)

    How to factory reset Cisco 1700 Router

    Hopefully I can help you here....its a very common thing to happen.


    First, I take it you dont know the passwords for console access or telnet/ssh?

    I will assume that these devices belong to you.

    step 1. Plug a cisco console cable into a serial port on your pc
    step 2. Plug other end into Cisco console port
    step 3. Using hyperterm or putty or similar connect to the serial port
    step 4. boot router, and make sure you clearly can see the output (this confirms you have good serial comms)
    step 5. if this fails, adjust the comm port settings (9600, 8,1,n are the default)
    step 6. now you have to do the only hard part...send the break command:

    Break command list: Break Commands

    Go down the list and match your OS and SW and try the sequence suggested.

    If this fails several times do what I do: Install putty (free) and then to send a break so you can get into rommom just hit "ctrl-a b".

    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)

    Lost access ownership of all folders after Factory reset

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder


    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.
