    You Require Permission From System to Make Changes to this Folder


    Hello,

    I'm trying to clean up one of my hard disk from files and software that I do not use anymore, for some reason I can't delete a bunch of folders included an XML document because I require permission from System, which left me with a big **** considering that I'm the only user and the administrator I find bizarre that I can't delete what I want.

    I've tried to look on youtube in order to find a solution as well on forum but even if sometime the article was talking about how to solve the problem on Windows 10, the screenshots didn't really match Windows 10, which is the OS I'm using.

    Finally I menaged to open the properties of the folder. SYSTEM already has the tick to get full access but everything is in grey. I moved the ownership to administrator but there's not way to edit the gray area and tick the line for the full access.

    Is there any cmd command line to bypass this absurdity?

    thanks

    :)

  3. Unable to delete a particular folder. Error: "You require permission from Administrators to make changes to this folder."

    Windows Edition 10 Version 1809, OS build 18272.1000

    After installing the latest creators update I have the following issue. When using Explorer to delete a folder that is not empty I always get this issue: "You require permission from Administrators to make changes to this folder." It doesn't matter
    if I just created it or not. I can remove the folder just fine using rmdir <folder> /s /q.

    Steps to reproduce the issue:

    1. Using explorer create the folder c:\users\rob\a\b\c.
    2. Using explorer try to delete folder c:\users\rob\a.
      1. It fails with "You require permission from Administrators to make changes to this folder."
    3. Using explorer delete the folder c:\users\rob\a\b\c -works just fine
    4. Using explorer delete the folder c:\users\rob\a\b -works just fine
    5. Using explorer delete the folder c:\users\rob\a -works just fine.

    This will also reproduce the issue

    1. mkdir c:\users\rob\a
    2. mkdir c:\users\rob\a\b
    3. mkdir c:\users\rob\a\b\c
    4. Using explorer try to delete folder c:\users\rob\a.
      1. It fails with "You require permission from Administrators to make changes to this folder."

    This is a new behavior and is causing some build tools to fail.

    Thanks,

    Rob
