Lost Access Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder

Question: Lost Access Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder

Can anyone help me regain Security Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder which I lost while looking at the access rights. I mistakenly closed the box while playing with the access rights and lost any access to the file.
I pulled the access rights to the file using icacls they are below.

application data
D:PAI(D;OICI;FA;;;WD)(A;;0x1200a9;;;WD)(A;OICI;FA;;;SY)(A;OICI;FA;;;BA)S:AI

I am thinking I can change the information in the file and restore it. Not sure exactly what to change?

I was also thinking I could pull the info from another computer running with the same operating system and reapply them to this file? Would this work?

I looked at Previous Versions of the upper level folder. Can I restore a previous version of this whole folder? Will it restore the Application Data folder with the prior permissions?

Preferred Solution: Lost Access Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Lost Access Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder

Are you asking about the Application Data or Appdata folder?

If Application Data, this is not a real folder but a junction used to allow interface with legacy programs. No access is necessary since it is pointing to the Appdata folder.

Hopefully someone can shed some light on this for me...

I have an older application that once installed, will run fine under an admin account and a power user account, but not a restricted user. I've given full control of the applications directory to the authenticated users group along with write permissions on all of the applications registry keys.

The application splash screen opens under a restricted account, but then just hangs as if its trying to read or write something it can't.

Any suggestions as to how to get this to run? Its just a simple form creation application, nothing special really.

Help?!

TIA.

Short answer...none. Those, and others, are internal Windows user profiles for running services and such. They have different privileges and permissions levels. Best not to mess with them at all unless advised to do so by a qualified person.

Thank you for looking.

I have two Windows XP Pro computers. On Computer1 there is one user called Test. On computer2 there are five users including Test. When the user Test is on the second computer I want him only to have access to all the files on Computer1. I do not want to the other users on Computer2 to have access to anything on Computer1 other than then the shared folder. How can I do this?

I know how to give share folders globally.

Thank you.
 

Answer:Giving certain users permissions on a shared folder

Use Advanced File Sharing (i.e., turn off Simple File Sharing) and give permission only to Test.

I need to access the "Application Data" folder under "All Users" and have been unable to do so. Initially I was denied permission so I changed ownership of the folder but now instead of an "access denied" message, it simply opens the main "All Users" directory in a new window without entering the "Application Data" folder.

How do I get around this?

I have recently upgraeed to Windows XP and have four user accounts: mine (the administrator) and three limited user accounts. I have installed my CD recording software from my admin account and all the other users can see it and run it. However, when they start it up, they get a message to say:"Uner Windows NT4/2000 burn rights are required by Nero to access CD Recorders and CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drives. Please ask your system administrator for a permission to use Nero".Can anyone tell me what this means?

Hello all,

Got a few questions regarding our network sharing.

Here is the setup, we have a "server" running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. This server has a RAID setup with a shared folder containing projects.

These projects need to be accessed by certain users, but should limited to certain folders.

Ideal situation: Username and password for networked computers that are dedicated to each user, upon connecting to the server using OS X or Windows 7 with these credentials are dumped within a project folder but no access to the parent directory. One user will have access to the entire parent directory.

Currently we have one 7 machine accessing via homegroup, which I cannot seem to limit access. We also have ~5 OS X machines running Snow Leopard or Lion, 10.6 and 10.7 respectively. All machines, excluding the other 7, connect as "Guest" currently with no password and have access to all files.

I can't seem to create Usernames with Passwords from the permissions properties. Within this dialog you can only see users, objects and locations. When trying to add a username, receive error stating the user does not exist.

When trying to click Add here,

Same result.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Setting permissions per specific users and folders for access from OSX

Welcome aboard, mcg !

Maybe it is not a relevent information, but as far as I know, windows use NTFS which is not usually accessed by MacOS, which uses Mac OS x Journaled formatting.

There are some programs likes Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X software to access NTFS partitions from a Mac.

May it be a helpful information ? I am not totally sure.

I don't remember when, but I availed myself of the free Windows 10 upgrade sometime back. I was using 8.1 and I had, at some point, moved C:\Users and all its associated folders to E:. Everything has worked fine and Win10 didn't have a problem. I did notice that there was still a C:\Users, but the only folder it contains is Administrator.

This was probably not a good move to make. Moving data folders, like Pictures, Documents, etc., is fine, but moving the actual User Profiles was not such a good idea. My E: drive is no longer large enough to hold all my photos and other data. I bought a replacement drive large enough, but having my Users Profiles on E: is now a problem and I want to move them back to C:, only without the data folders.

I can delete all the existing data files from those default folders (I have backed them all up), so now I need to find a way to restore the Users folder and contents to C:. I've tried researching the problem, but found nothing that specifically applies to my situation. The TenForums article, "Relocating Users folder on an existing Windows installation" Seems to be as close as I can get. Unfortunately, this part has made me take pause and ask you all for help:

Answer:Restore Users Profiles back to C:\Users without data folders

Jim McClain said:

Do you know what I should do? Maybe Kari's still around and can reply? Any guidance would be appreciated.



If you used the Sysprep method to relocate the Users folder to E: drive, you can use the same method to relocate it back to C: drive. The warning you quoted is when doing this in a clean install, it does not apply when moving Users folder back to C: drive which will always be accepted and OK for Windows.

Follow these simple steps (looks more complicated than it in reality is!):

Create a new, temporary local user account, name it as you wish like "Dummy" or such (tutorial)Change Dummy's account type to administrator (tutorial)Sign out from all other user accounts, sign in to DummyDisable all other user accounts except Dummy, the one you are currently signed in (tutorial). No worries, accounts and their data will remain intact, deactivating (disabling) them temporarily is done because sometimes Sysprep causes existing user accounts to lose Start and Search / Cortana functionality. When we are ready we will again activate (enable) all old user accountsWhen done, open an elevated Notepad (right click and select Run as Administrator) copy the following code and paste it to a new text document]:

Answer:I lost my limited user account folder icon in Users folder.

You mean you hide it? If that what happened, just change the folder view setting to show up the hidden folders.

I have always partitioned my PC such that programme files and systm are on one partition, and data on another. With W7, if you have several users, the default location is C:/ Users/ Username.I believe it is complicated to move this folder.I have ceated, in the other "F" partition, a similar filing system to W XP - ie My Documents ,with sub folders for music,Word, Pictures etc.How do I direct data from users to this F partition, as it is much larger than the system one? At the moment I use "Save as" to send data there.

Answer:Users folder/ data in W7

Not sure its the best option but i would just log on as administrator and copy/paste it over to F from each user.i expect there is an easier option that someone can suggest.

Hi All,

Im trying to install AT&T application which is a profile based application. Means it installs in the user profile directly instead of other location.

My Problem is user dont have the admin access, either i need to use my ID or administrator ID. Which installs application into Appdata\Local folder which wont be accessible by other users.
How to i enable the application for other users as well without providing admin access

Answer:Installing profile based application in other users folder

What ATT app is this? If it's for accessing the internet then that doesn't require any installed program, just plug in the wire or access wireless signal via icon in SYstem Tray. Any installed program beyond this for this purpose is bloatware.

I have W7 64 bit and have my main HD partitioned c:/ - 100 gig, F:/ Data - balance of 500 Gog. I have retained the old XP filing system of most self generated data being in a main "My Documents" folder with sub folders such as My Music, My Word Docs, My Pictures etc (I include Outlook in this). My data partition therefore holds most of my data and is frequently backed up to another drive with Synch Toy. However the Users folder is still on the C: drive and accumulates data such as downloads etc. I have Googled this issue and it seems very difficult to move the Users foler to another partition. Any views? PS I "tell" the libraries where the data is.

Answer:Data Partition and Users folder

try this:
Click start button
Click your name at top of menu
This opens your user profile folder
Right click "my documents" shortcut
Select properties, then location tab
In this window you can select "move" and browse to a new location
Apply>OK
You can use this procedure for any personalised folders.

How can I setup 2 networks so that my wireless users can't access wired users?

All of my computers are wired... but, I would like to give my retired neighbor (he's 64 years old) wireless access. But, I don't want him or anyone else access to my shared files b/w desktop/laptop. So, should I put it on a different subnet? Do I need a 2nd router? Right now, I have the BEFSR41 with a WAP11 AP on 192.168.1.245 with the router on 192.168.1.1 (both are 255.255.255.0 subnet).

Thanks!
 

Answer:How can I setup 2 networks so that my wireless users can't access wired users?

I would setup a DMZ, you can do this by using two physical routers or something like smooth wall with multiple nics. If I were you I would setup smooth wall on a crap old box and install 3 network cards into the old computer. Hooking your cable modem to one of the network cards in the smoothwall box will be like pluggin in your cable modem to the wan port on the back of your router. I would plug your wireless router into to the next nic on your smooth wall box. If your neighbor is the only one using the wireless do the following. Enable WEP, don't broadcast your ssid, filter by mac address, and limit the total number of connections to 1. That should keep your wireless rather secure. With the final network card in the smooth wall box attach either a standard switch or even another router. Smooth wall has built in DHCP support and it will allow you to set a range of ips.Hard wire all your home computer to the switch and your in business.

Greetings,I'm getting the BSOD STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}The Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000034 (0x00000000 0x0000000)The system has been shutdown. after accepting MS Win updates. I can't boot in any safe mode option, and since the OS is OEM installed, I understand I can't use Recovery Console, so I believe my only remaining option is a reinstall of XP home. Per MS support http://support.microsoft.com/kb/312368/You may lose data that is stored in the All Users folder and you may lose default program templates and settings that are stored in the Default User folder after you reinstall, repair, or upgrade Windows XP. Also, Start menu shortcuts, items in the Startup group, and documents, pictures, or music files that are stored in the Shared Documents folder may be missing. My question is whether any data NOT on the All Users or Default User folder (i.e. on C drive or in a subfolder of C) will be safe from a reinstallation from the XP CD.Thanks in advance for any suggestions/information.

Answer:Is data NOT in All Users folder safe during an XP Home reinstall?

On any OEM system...you are dealing with reoovery/restore partitions/disks/processes.

No rules applicable to an XP install...which were written/documented by Microsoft (for users with MS install CDs)...should be interpreted to to work with an OEM system.

The system manufacturer determines what system repair/reinstall options are available...and how they work.

I would expect the details regarding such...if available...to be in the user's manual and/or posted at the OEM website.

As for using an XP CD to reinstall on an OEM system...I would take the warning from Microsoft at face value. Seems pretty clearcut to me.

I own a system running windows 7 enterprise and have an administrator account on it.

I would like to setup a "standard user" (not admin) account for a new user.

I plan to create a folder for the user inside of which the user will be allowed to create his own subfolders and files. I plan to right click on that folder and "send it to
the desktop".

When the user double clicks that desktop icon, he'll be running windows explorer and I don't want him to be able to see or do anything using windows explorer outside of his
"home" folder other than creating or accessing items under it.

I plan to have that user's home folder be directly under the c: drive.

Questions:

Is there a better place for it (inside of "my documents", etc) or is under the c: drive as good a place as any for these purposes?

If I put the user's "home" folder under the c: drive, what should the permissions be for which users and which groups on the c: drive toplevel itself and on the user's
"home" folder so the user can do what he wants in or under his home folder, can run a few applications located in "Program Files" such as Firefox (one of the desktop icons I will be installing) and in another folder under the c: drive where I will place a few .exe files he can also run, but NOT be able to read, write, execute or in any way modify the contents of any other folders anywhere under the c: drive?

Answer:How to setup users/groups/permissions for a user "home" folder

If you do not want a user to have access to certain folders, it is fairly simple to do. For instance, say you do not want a user to see other user's files. With your administrator account, do the following:

1. Click start menu
2. Click My Computer/Computer
3. Open C: (or whatever drive your users folder is in)
4. Open the Users folder
5. Right click your administrator user folder
6. Click Properties
7. Click the Security tab
8. Click Edit
9. (You don't want username John to open this folder ever) Click Add
10. Type in John (or the username you do not want to access the folder) and hit Enter
11. Under the Deny column, put a check in Full Control.
12. Click OK and apply to all folders (you may need to do this in safe mode to apply to every folder since some folders will be in use in normal mode).

Since re-installing Windows 7, I can't open the Users folder on my other data drive.



The green bar goes almost to the end of the X, then freezes. I've tried leaving it for a couple hours and it's still in the same spot.

I've tried disabling the thumbnails and indexing is disabled, still the same.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for your time.

Answer:Can't access users folder since re-installing windows.

Hello micdoodle8. Welcome to the forum.

The USERS folder is usually created by the OS during installation on the same drive (usually C: ) as the OS. I will bet you have a Users folder on C: right now. Which would mean you now have 2? That could confuse the OS.

Did you redirect the Users folder to D: on your previous OS installation?

Or did you manually create this folder and just name it Users?

Always helpful if we can see what is going on. Can you post screenshots of an expanded Windows Explorer and Disk Management?

Do you have files you need to retrieve from that folder?

Some folders in my computer are blocked as in i cannot modify their content only read them.
When accessing the security tab it shows that my user (which is suppose to be the only one on the computer) has limited access and some users which i consider bogus (they have names like S-347373-26262 etc.) have full access
Tried formatting they are still there
HELP, please

Answer:Bogus users blocking folder access

Hi americanu197, Welcome to 7Forums

First and foremost, don't mess with something that you don't understand
Even if you have created only one user in the system, many other users are created by Windows for different tasks and some folders are off limits for normal users.
Deleting the system generated users or playing with those folders can be quite dangerous.

Hope I was not too hard on you. We have seen quite a few users who do things like that and then complain that Windows doesn't work properly.

Currently I am getting requests to allow off site users access to a company folder so that they can share files with a department within my organization. Does anyone have a suggestion of the best way to serve this folder(s) up? Would I just set them up with VPN access and then just give them permissions to that folder only? Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Currently we are running SBS2003, BES, Win Server 2003, and a Sonicwall 4060 Pro.

Windows does not have a folder All users. It is a link to C:\ProgramData folder, in other words when you run command DIR "C:\Users\All Users", it lists the content of folder C:\ProgramData.

Okay, some background 1st, and bear with me as this is complex. Upgraded from Win 7 Ultimate to Win 10 Pro. Win 7 was set up with a smaller SSD system drive and a larger HDD data drive. The user's data folders had been relocated to e:\Users (not the appdata folder just the users data folders like Documents, Pictures, etc.). Appdata was still located in c:\Users\myname. Computer was not used since upgrade to Win 10
but I had verified that all programs were working fine.
After the most recent updates I lost all my customizations in Word. Found the problem documented online and attempted to do the fix MS suggests. Which starts by going to C:\Users\myname\appdata\roaming\microsoft\templates to rename some folders. But when I tired to navigate there using explorer, the folder C:\Users\myname\ doesn't appear. The data folders at e:\users\myname\ are fine, but the C:\Users\myname folder is just gone. However all apps are working fine and clearly accessing the files stored in that location.
So I run %appdata%\Microsoft\Templates and it opens up another copy of File Explorer showing myname > Appdata > Roaming > Microsoft > Templates And in fact I am able to restore the files in question using CrashPlan, restoring them to their original location, which would be C:\Users\myname\appdata\roaming\microsoft\templates. I test the Word customizations and they are now working fine again so the restore worked. So it seems the folder is there, but I can not see it in file explorer o... Read more

Answer:Folder c:\Users\myname\ is not visible after Win 10 upgrade, how can I access them?

As an update, I worked from the command prompt and C:\Users\myname\ is there I can dir it and view all the contents, folders and all files, just can't see any of it from File Explorer. Settings are R for C:\Users\myname\ and H for C:\Users\myname\appdata\ so things look normal aside from the fact that that the whole subdirectory has pulled a disappearing act in File explorer.

I could find them on the partition and restore them.
However, the folder "Application Data" which is normall under
Administrator, All Users and GSt (myself) was missing in all three locations.
Don't know how many other folders were lost.
Some Data subdirectories from <Applications Data> were lost.

Promptly ran a Virus Scan with AVG Free and then with Trendmicro Housecall "internet Security 6", which is available on the web. [I use TrendMicro on my other PC.]

There are no viruses, Trojans or Worms, by either scan.

Rebooting and searching for "Application Data" folder came up empty.

What can have happened??

My searches didn't turn anything up, but I have a pretty general question about file access rights... I'm trying to separate a potential problem with the hard drive vs. a security "feature" in Vista.

I'm having a hardware problem (maybe a virus though) with my laptop and am trying to access the hard drive to pull files off of it. I'm set up for it to appear as USB removable drive on another computer (both machines run Vista Premium) and can navigate most folders (eg, program files etc...). The ones I want to retrieve are all in the "Users\$username$" subfolders and when I try to open that folder, Vista chimes in with it's administrator check-in, so once I put in the password it apparently should work, BUT it never loads the folder contents into the right-hand pane. The progress bar on top slowly loads to very near the top, but never finishes. I've waited about 10 minutes before giving up on it.

So the question is whether I should even expect to be able to view these files without hacking in somehow or if this is part of my problem.... I'm doing a virus scan on that hard drive as a slave on the other computer now, so the jury's still out on that front.

Thanks!

Hello,

I don't know why you want to, but you have to fiddle quite a bit with the permissions.

Navigate to the folder (Default User) and right click on it and select Properties.Under the Security tab, click Advanced.Under the Owner tab, click Edit.Click "Other Users and Groups".Click Advanced.Click "Find Now".Scroll down and double click on Everyone.Click OK THREE times.Click on the Permissions tab.Under type Deny, single click on it and click Remove.Click OK.Click Edit (now on the standard file Property window under the Security tab).Click Add.Click Advanced.Click "Find Now".Scroll down and double click on Everyone.Click OK.Single click on Everyone and then tick the "Full Control" box under Allow.Click OK TWO times.
This will get you in, but I don't know why you want to. Don't fiddle with anything in there.

Well, you can just create a new administrator account. I think this will bypass you your problem.

If Yes, then you are doing it wrong, just go the the Control Panel and open up User Accounts, click on the account name you are currently using and change the name.

Hello everyone, nice forum to be in!

My question is about how I can set the permissions for the users on a network that
All have windows 7 x64 on their PCs?

Let me make it more clear:
I am not using Home group function of win 7 and if we have 4-6 PCs that have access
to number of shared folders on one of another PCs, We named that computer "Server" and we want to use it as the main place for storing files that come from other users on the network(All on a Server PC). The root folder has several subfolders.
Now How can I set the permissions for those subfolder the way that some users ON the network can have access to them and others not?

I have tried to add the users (user names) that exist on the network (and not on the local machine) to permission with no luck, windows can't find them because it only searches the local PC for the specified user and not the entire network machines.

Again, How can I do that?

Hello,

Is there a way to stop Windows from trying to keep everything so damned 'secure'? Eliminate the need for permissions and file protection etc?

I have a whole host of folders I can't access, or can only access by every time granting admin privileges. The biggest problem being that when a program wants to access a folder, it can't give those rights and just crashes. If I try to scan a page for instance, I have to store it somewhere like C:\TEMP or something because I can't store it to My Documents!

Normally I've only been logged in as administrator, and signed into my microsoft account. However, when I try to use the MyDocuments folder, for instance, it always says I don't have the right to do that. In accounts, I have made sure even normal users have full control of all files and folders, let alone admins. I haven't even basically created any other users until as a measure to try to access my My Documents etc. folders I made a normal user (with admin rights though) but to no avail.

If I check the properties of the MyDocuments folder - it says 'read only'. Now if I tick that off, it takes a while applying the command to all subfolders and such. Fine. The tick vanishes. Now here's the fun part - if I close the properties box, and re-open it immediately - AGAIN it has turned read-only! Seems like there is no chance to win!

You can setup a user so their password never expire. In Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Computer Managerment / Local Users and Groups / Users . Right click on the user name and choose Properties. Checkmark "user cannot change password".
( Win 7 method, should be the same in Vista, and almost the same in XP )

In order to stop the user from making system wide changes, change the account to a Standard / Limited User account.

Hi guys,
I have setup a home group network at my small office between 6 PCs for the file sharing purpose and it works fine. One thing I have no idea about as how to set an access permission for specific users to let them access my shared folders while the rest to not to do ? Just two of them I wanna share my files with not the entire homegroup.

Just to make it clearer, each PC has just a single user who?s already the administrator and all the PCs are visible in the network map. I don?t wanna share the folder over my PC as the simple sharing ?Share with HomeGroup read or read/write? as it will allow all the PCs to access such folder while I just want 2 PCs to have the access.

I went to Specific people option but none of the group members is there for sure. Then I went to advanced sharing but still can?t figure it out as much as I can?t find a clear online tutorial of how I can do it... My PC which contains the files is running Window 10 Pro and all I need to do is to share one of my folders with a specific PC ?PC2 for example? and share another with another ?PC3? as no else can access them as well not to let any of the two PCs to access the other?s folder.

Hope I can get a clear walkthrough so I can get the job done. Thanks alot in advance.

Hi guys,
I have setup a home group network at my small office between 6 PCs for the file sharing purpose and it works fine. One thing I have no idea about as how to set an access permission for specific users to let them access my shared folders while the rest to not to do ? Just two of them I wanna share my files with not the entire homegroup.

Just to make it clearer, each PC has just a single user who?s already the administrator and all the PCs are visible in the network map. I don?t wanna share the folder over my PC as the simple sharing ?Share with HomeGroup read or read/write? as it will allow all the PCs to access such folder while I just want 2 PCs to have the access.

Hi everyone,
I'm running Win XP Pro and have turned off advanced file sharing. I want to set advanced permissions for my Shared Documents folder, but I can't see my other networked computer. My network is very simple, 2 computers (the other is running XP Home) both connected to a 4 port router/dsl modem. I want to create a new user, OR group for the Shared documents folder on the XP pro machine, that is specific to only my Xp home computer having acess to it, so that I can tighten the restrictions on the "everyone" group. However, when prompted where to look for new users, I can only see my own (xp pro) computer, and not the other one. Both computers are in the MSHOME workgroup, and both can see each other in windows explorer. Why can't I search for users on my xp home machine?

Thanks

I just upgraded my laptop with an SSD, and I have 2 HD bays so I put the 500GB drive in the second one for storage. I went to move all My Documents, My Music, etc folders to my storage drive by right clicking, properties, location tab, changing the letter to D:, telling it to create the folder and move the contents. The only problem is it littered my user folder with folders Music, Pictures, Videos, etc in addition to the normal "My (insert media type here)" folders. The folders it made when I did that I don't even have permissions to see who has permission for those folders. They're clogging up my user folder (visually at least), and I can't open, delete, mark as hidden, or anything. I can't even restore the default locations for My Music, etc cause it says I don't have permission.

How do I get rid of all the extra stuff it made for no reason?

Answer:Don't have permissions for C:\Users\username\Music

Well, my bad I guess. I tried everything I knew of, but it seems that Windows freaked out when I changed locations of ones I hadn't visited. I had visited the documents library and no folder was created for that. As soon as I visited the other libraries and folders, the corresponding super permission folders were deleted. It just really bothered me when I saw Windows creating these beyond administrator level permission folders in my user folder. Weird.

Sometimes when I move directories the resulting directory needs to be modified under the security tab to add the "Authenticated Users" user in order to remove the lock icon.

I've verified that I am the owner of the directory...and the other users with access to the directory is "System", My Account and "domain/Administrators".

Answer:Directory Permissions - Why Authenticated Users?

Just more information to make sure I'm being clear.

If I download a group of wallpapers from Usenet and they go into the "Downloads" library the directory has no lock. Once I move them to the "Walls" library, there is a lock.

If I add "Authenticated Users" to the directory's security tab the lock goes away.

Is this a feature, bug or user error? Any one it might be, how do I stop this behavior?

P.S. This also happens outside of libraries as well, so I don't think it has anything to do with junctions/symlinks.

I have a Windows 10 PC that acts as a file share. Within this file share there are several hundred folders. I'd like to know if there is an easy to grant two different users different permissions to these several hundred folders.

For example, I'd like like one users to be have full control to folders A, B, C and the other user to have full control to folder 1, 2, 3 - Neither of which should be able to see what access the other user has.

Is there an easy way to do that other than going to each folder and granting each user appropriate access?

I have not tried this myself so you might want to try this with 2 or 3 folders first to see if it works.

Create a temporary folder for each user: UserATemp, UserBTemp, etc. Move the folders you want each user to access into their respective temporary folder. Set the proper permissions on the UserATemp folder. Then under the security tab click on advanced. On the advanced security and sharing window click the check box for Replace all child object permission entries.... then apply. Then move all the subfolders back to where you had them first.

Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question, but I'm wondering how to set permissions for a file in Windows 7 so that a user on the internet can access it? I am running an Apache webserver from my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 machine, and I have php and Perl scripts that need to be accessed by users outside my network (such as a FormMail script.)

Since this was -quite- the problem to implement I thought I would share it here on the forums.

Problem: I needed to allow a specified group permission to review, archive and clear the security event log weekly on classified machines. I could not give this group administrative control over the system.

Resolution:

The user has to have the following permissions:

1) member of backup operators group
2) be assigned the privilege "Manage Auditing and Security" log via domain or local policy
3) (and the one I never would have guessed) User must have Full permissions
to the key that governs the Security Log:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Security

With that in place this script will accept arguments of a path and filename (no extension) and save the current security log then clear it. I use this in conjunction with xcacls.vbs to then set permissions on the resulting file so that is is read only by everyone and only admins have full control. I do utilize these scripts in a VB application behnd the scenes so the users never know whats going on they just push the "Archive System Security Log" button and all is well with the world.

Interesting Side Note: Just giving a user the "Manage Auditing and Security" right via policy allows a user to 1) view the security event log and 2) clear the security event log but, and this is a huge but, they cannot save the security event log! What is up with that.

There is an Admin and a limited user. Admin works on file like access .mdb or .jpg. When limited opens .mdb file, it is "read only". Admin crops .jpg and limited cant ftp, "access denied". (the file actualy sends but hangs ftp client)

For Access files it seems to have something to do with an Office Resource Kit (which I haven't figured out yet), but with .jpg's what is causing 'ownership'?

Hello! I am migrating from a Windows XP SP+ system to a new Windows 7 64-bit
system. I have repartitioned my drive to have a new E: partition so that I can
keep my user data separate from the OS. I did this in accordance with this page:

Move Your Data to a Safer, Separate Partition in Windows 7 - PCWorld

Someone noted in the comments to this page

"One bit of advice I would like to add: Once you've moved your user folders to that new partition, check the ACLs (access control lists) of your user folders to be sure that they have the permissions as you want them to be. After I moved the data folders on my computer to a separate data partition, all users were able to see each others' data. The ACLs appear on the Security tab of the folders' properties."

I am now checking them, and I am confused by what I see. There are
four group or user names listed in the Security tab for each folder:

Authenticated user
SYSTEM
Administrators
Users

Am I correct in assuming that

Authenticated user = Anyone who has successfully logged in with a password
Administrators = Anyone who has an administrator account, including the
built-in Administrator account

Is Users a superset or subset of 'Authenticated users?' Is every authenticated
user also a User, or are Users only those people who have logged in without a
password?

I'm also trying to understand the file permissions that are allowed. There
is a 'Read & execute' permission that is allowed f... Read more

Answer:Need help understanding users and permissions to secure new system

Hi FluffyBunny, welcome to the Seven Forums.

First, the difference between Users and Authenticated Users is that Users only contain users of that local PC, whereas Authenticated Users also contain the domain or Active Directory users. This Microsoft TechNet article explains more: Appendix D - User and Group Accounts

The read attribute means the user can view the contents of the file.

Personally I find those instructions you linked to be not so good. It's OK if you only want to relocate Documents folder but then it gets very complicated. I would rather use one of these methods:User Profile - Change Default Location
User Folders - Change Default Location
User Profiles - Create and Move During Windows 7 Installation

Hello,
On my laptop I have two user accounts - admin and a normal user account. In my attempt to block access to one partition of the hard drive for the normal user, I stupidly removed all permissions for authorised users for that particular partition, so that now I get an Access Denied error when I try to access it, even as admin.
How do I fix that?
And as a bonus, once it is fixed, how do I do what I originally wanted to do? (ie make it so the admin can access and use the K: partition, but the normal user cannot access it)
Thank you!

Answer:Accidentally removed all authorised users permissions

Is this Windows home premium or Professional? You need to take ownership of the drive with the administrators account then you should be able to re-add the authorised users security group. To take ownership right click on the drive and select the securities tab. Click on "Advanced" and select the owners tab assign the ownership to the administrators group. When you have taken ownership you can go back to the security tab and re assign permissions to authenticated users. To block the other users you can remove the "users" group and explicitly grant Administrators all permissions.

Answer:Second Internal Drive Permissions to Block Other Users

Hello Mike,

If you like, another option would be to use BitLocker to encrypt the hard drive, and use a password to be able to unlock it. This way no one without the password would be able to access the hard drive.

This would be a lot more secure. Just be sure to back up your BitLocker recovery key to a separate location in case you may need it in the future.

I work in a large company with hundreds of computers. Recently (since July) we've been finding that new users can't log onto some of our 64-bit Windows 7 Enterprise computer for the first time. The security permissions on C:\Users have been changed, removing the usual groups:

Authenticated Users
SYSTEM
Administrators
users

With new groups:

ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES
CREATOR OWNER
SYSTEM

I can add the local Administrators group to the Users folder, but there are many files/folders within C:\Users\Default where I can't change the permissions. Existing User directories don't seem to be affected.

All of the computers have the same image loaded. Those in the same AD groups may or may not be affected. They are all at the same patch level.

Does anyone have ideas about what may have happened to change those permissions?

The oddest thing just started happening.

I have 3 limited users running on my XP SP3 box. These users are members of the Users group only.

All of a sudden, all of the users are now like administrators with full access to everything including the other limited users' private directories. Looking at the "Effective Permissions" on any of these supposedly hidden directories gives ALL of the permissions. The users can even write to the "\Program Files" and "\WINDOWS" directories; obviously a catastrophic state if security is at all important.

I have no idea what to do about this. Can this be a virus? Is there something in some hidden group policy or other tweak that will restore these users back to being unable to access other directories?

These users can also see and write to all areas of the registry too.

I am worried that this is the result of some sort of bug in a Microsoft update, since how else but the O/S allowing this access at the NT level could this occur?

Any advice most gratefully accepted.

TIA.

Answer:Effective permissions suddenly admin for limited users

Hi,

The only way i can think of going about it is going into the computer management console/local users and groups/groups and making sure in the admin and power user groups that none of the limited users have been added. If thats ok then its probably a good idea to scan your computer and find out if there is a virus or spyware present.

Hope this helps.
