    take ownership works "sort of"


    When I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro ver 2004 my PC developed administration issues. I ran the takeownership reg file on a few of my folders and it seemed to help.
    However, there is one program that backs up the registry each day and creates an exe file that can be run if you need to restore that days registry backup.
    When I click on one of the backups, the restore fails unless I first click Run as Adminstrator. If I right click on TakeOwnership for the entire contents of the backup folder that contains all the registry backups, then they all will run with no issues. However, the next day when a new exe file is created for that days regisrty backup, it will fail the restore process unless I run the TakeOwnership on that new file.
    This was never an issue before this upgrade.
    How can I make all future backups automatically set to TakeOwnership so that I do not have to run it each time a new registry backup is saved?

    :)

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

  3. Ownership Issues

    that will not hurt taking ownership, but I would also then look in the list of users on the ownership page and make sure your user account name is there with full permissions. Probably not.

    even though you take ownership of an item, you may not be in the list of users with permissions.

    first select disable inheritance, then select "ADD" in the list of users, and add your user account the same way you took ownership and select full permissions.

    Then administrators may only have select permissions in the list. so after you disable inheritance, delete admins user. then select add again and select admins in the list and select full permissions

    Changed Ownership of C:\ and Can't Fix

    Hi Greg,

    Let's get this issue sorted. To better assist you with this concern, we would like to know the following information:

    • Which account is the new owner of the C drive?
    • Are you using an account with administrator rights?
    • Have you tried changing the ownership back to yourself?

    In the meantime, let's try taking back the ownership by following the steps provided by
    BurrWalnut in the following thread:
    Is there a way to take ownership of my C drive?


    You may also perform a repair upgrade using a
    Creators Update ISO
    file. This method can repair broken operating system files while preserving your files, settings and installed applications. For more information and steps on how to perform a repair upgrade, kindly refer to the wiki article created
    by Andre Da Costa on the following link:
