    Trying to understand authorities/permissions


    Hello - I've been viewing authorities/permissions as hierarchical with each successive level incorporating everything from the previous level and adding to it per this pic:

    Today I encountered an anomaly which conflicts with that view whilst unsuccessfully attempting to move the hibernation file to my data drive. Namely I could perform the powercfg -h command with cmd running as admin but it failed running as System:

    So now I'm no longer confident I understand this correctly. Googling results indicate a lack of consensus in the tech community and lack of consistently applied definitions within MS documentation regarding the relationships between these authority ?levels?.

    Can someone please enlighten me?

    Thank you.

    :)

  3. No permissions

    Hi,

    I would suggest you to right click on the user's folder for your profile and check if the permissions shows as "read only'. If this is the case, it might be causing the issue. In this case, I would suggest you to go to C:\User folder, right click on the
    folder with your username and follow these steps:

    • Open the properties of the main user profile folder where the files are located (such as Documents, Pictures, etc).
    • Go to the Security tab and click Advanced.
    • Check the box at the bottom of this window. It is labeled "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" and then click Ok.
    This does a one-time action that replaces the security on all the files/subfolders. It’s one-time, so you won’t find that box checked if you peek at it later. Try these steps and let us know the results for further assistance.
