Preferred Solution: no permission to access cgibin on server

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: no permission to access cgibin on server

It will most probably be their server.

On Windows7 Pro,  trying to run IIS.  The way I am used to execute is  on the browser "localhost".  I used to have the code in the directory  C:\inetpub\wwwroot.   Even before I copy,  I am hoping to see
the image IIS welcome page.  Once it is successful, want to copy the code as that was the way I used to do in Window XP.    However I am getting the following message.  I have administrator access to the machine and gave full permissions
to the folder  'C:\inetpub\wwwroot'.  Still the same message. 
Error message 401.3: You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied (access denied due to Access Control Lists). Ask the Web server's administrator to give you access to 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot'.

Can someone help me to address this issue.  Thanks a lot in advance.

Agh!
I keep getting this error everytime I try to get onto a certain site:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

And I am not sure why. I can access the site when I am on a different network or through a proxy, but not from my home network. Is is possible that I was blocked from this site or something? Is there a way to get around this (other than a proxy)?

Answer:You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Can you tell us the site or give us a link to it so we can see if others get the same error.

Cheers!

Only have this error message on one website so far, but I was able to visit it a few days ago with no problems. Not sure why anything has changed, can someone please help?

Answer:Forbidden: You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Clear the Cookies, etc for whatever web browser you are using. If using any third party security software, make sure that it is not blocking that website. Basic stuff that you need to go and check to make sure that it is not one of those two items causing it.

Dear all:
This question is about giving right permission for users to access a folder, which contains a MS Access file database. In this case, without using MS Access to grant Read/Write rights, I can use Server OS to control user permissions of Read/Write.

However, it has happened a few times that suddenly some of us who have Administrator rights were only able to read the data but not able to alter; in other words, our permission rights have changed from Administrator to limited users. (Admin has both read and write, limited users only have read only).

I checked on the Server end, the permissions (for accessing that folder) are given correctly (assigned within Active Directory).

I was trying to figure out how it happened, and suddenly, I was able to view the database as Admin again.

There seems to be a glitch with my network across MS platform or something... sometimes either I cannot view the computers/shared folders on network, or sometimes I cannot access certain directories with right permissions.

Gladly this does not happen often (like once a month). But still, I would like to fix it. If anyone knows anything about it, please feel free to share your knowledge -)


Thank you~~

Hi Rich,

I receive the same message when I go to the website in VirtualBox. I used to get this error when I set incorrect permissions on my index file with CHMOD. Perhaps the website is being upgraded. This page is particularly odd since it actually loads the domain, yet still gives the error.

I would give it a few days and see if it's up again.

Hello there,

I use steam. So basically what's happening is that sometimes, randomly I get this error message because of which I can't connect to steamcommunity.com at all. This can be solved by disconnecting my dialup cable wired internet and reconnecting it.
But the problem is, it stays as long as 15 minutes and then the same error occurs again. It keeps on occurring the entire day and so on and it's really a drag to keep reconnecting my net every 15 minutes.
So, any solution ?
Thanks in advance.

Shortly have recent changes (stated above) the issue started with 5 users in parent domain.  After existing user logs in applications like  windows explorer, internet explore, will error with  "windows cannot access the specified

Unaffected users are able to login to same test computer and run applications without issue.
Clearly a domain permission problem with the user account, but not sure how to proceed.
For testing I gave affected users domain admin rights and the issue goes away.  Remove domain admin rights and the issue returns for the user.

Hello,

I am attempting to access an application.exe file on my desktop. Each time that I click on it the Windows message, "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." pops up. I am the system administrator so this should NOT be a problem but apparently many out there are dealing with this as well. I can delete, move and even copy the file but I cannot run it. There is no option for override with password or grant permission. It just says that I cannot run it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, the system I am running is Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Answer:Windows can't access file. May not have permission to access.

Hello KyRy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might check to see if you can right click on the file, click on Properties, click on Security tab, and make sure that you have Read & execute permission allowed (checked) for your user account or the administrators group.Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups
If not, then you might see if you may be able to install and use the free program Unlocker on the file to have access to it afterwards.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hey everyone,

Thanks for this great website. This will actually be my first post here. I am having issues with my DNS configurations, under the IPV4 properties. I originally had it set to receive the dns server automatically, and now it is constantly changing to receive dns server through a static IP. The static Ip address that keeps getting assigned is 216.146.36.240. I do have internet access, but I my outlook which is setup with a exchange email address is not connecting because of this issue. I noticed that my homepage did change once, but I dont know if it was because of a software that I downloaded or virus related. Honestly, I am not sure what is causing this.

Things that I have already tried:
Booted into safemode and ran rkill followed by malwarebytes and superantispyware.
I didnt know I wasn't supposed to run it on my own, but I ran Combofix (sorry)
I ran Microsoft Security Essentials
I ran from a command line ipconfig /flushdns, and rebooted.

Thanks guys

Answer:DNS server changes to static without permission

I thought it was dyndns.org that was the issue, and i just realized it wasn't.
There is a software called Sendori, I uninstalled it. And that seemed to be the problem.

I now get this error message trying to access network resources from a laptop that used to work just fine. My wife's similarly configured laptop continues to work fine. I regularly share drives and printers across all machines and all appear to work except for this laptop. I have found that I can pring the other computers without issue if I use the ip address and can "net use" the drives directly by specifying the ip address rather than the computer name. However, any attempt to use the computer name fails (as above or as a "System error 53 has occurred" in a command prompt). Using the [email protected] solves part of the problem but I cannot find a similar [email protected] workaround to get to my network printer successfully.

Ok, I posted earlier that I needed a solution to my problem, well I found one. I got the eval version of windows server 2003 (180 days to use it), my school is looking into purchasing a license as I type this.

Anyway, onto my problem. I have everything set up and running, DHCP server, DNS server, Active Directory, etc. Plus I have all the users created. Everyone can login (I have mandatory profiles set) and do their work and that's fine. However, here's my problem, I created a share directory called "Users", this directory contains all the user folders (by their full name, so "John Smith" for example). I have set the correct permissions and everything (I believe) but people get an error everytime they try and save, something along the lines of permissions not being set or the disk being read only.

Just to be clear, if person X is logged in, and they try and get into person Z's folder they get access denied (and vice versa )

I have each folder set (under the security tab of the properties box) so that "Administrators" and that particular user have FULL access to that folder, it's subfolder, and it's contents (on the advanced tab I have deselected the inherit permissions thing).

So any ideas on why they can't save in their designated folder?

Yes you do want Outlook Express to act as a server, go into the program window in Zone Alarm and make sure you have four ticks in OE line, have a look in Start Up (RUN>MSCONFIG>STARTUP) and see what you have running this could be causing slow download, but Hotmail is not the speediest.

permissions on a share is a separate set of information than login information. If you share something with everyone, it does not mean that everyone can log into a workstation. They will have to log in as a valid user, then connect to the share from there.

I have just set up a computer with Windows 7, and I'm apparently missing something simple, but I just can't find it.

I installed Windows 7 on the machine and everything works great. I then joined the computer to a 2003 Server domain. Everything still appeared to work fine. However, when I log into the domain on the Windows 7 computer, I don't have the correct permissions on the local machine.

I can access the domain. The login works fine. There are no errors. However, when I try and access anything on the local drive, like explorer.exe, it tells me that I don't have the permissions to access it. I can run some programs, in some directories (like Program Files), but if I try and run anything in the Windows directory, I don't have permission. I can access things on the domain, and I can even use Firefox to view the contents of domain machines, mapped network drives, and even the local C drive. I just cannot run anything that's in the local Windows directory.

I can access the local drive using either the domain administrator account, or the local machine administrator account. However, using either of those accounts, I'm not allowed to change permissions on that folder! I can see that the folder is set as read only, but when I attempt to remove the read-only flag (using either account), it tells me that I don't have permission to do that.

I've also tried to give the domain user administrator permission on the local machine, but that has no effect either. That part really con... Read more

This thread at TechNet seems to relate to your problem. It mentioned something about you need to set the password the same as the Administrator's password of the Windows 2000 system. And also you need to change the NTLM authentication level in Windows 7. Even though you are on server 03 this may still apply.

For starters, where are you trying to access it from? Is this an Internet connection from home, college, business, etc? If it's a home connection, perhaps you should speak with your ISP to see if there are any issues. As for business and colleges: the people in charge of networking at these respective establishments would be the best bet.

We're in a domain at work and a user have a folder on the server that he usually syncs with from his computer. The problem is that when I right click on the folder and choose "syncronize" it gives me "permission error". 
How do I fix this?

Hello everyone, I'm new here and I signed up specifically because I was told this place was great for helping people with really intractable problems.

I have a user, Markus, he's an engineer, and he likes folder structures. He's got a nice one set up on my server with very well-defined permissions for several groups for his engineering projects.

His computer: Core 2 Duo machine running Windows Vista, non-SP1.
Server is a Dell PowerEdge running Server 2003 SP2 with all the latest updates.
We are in a Windows 2003 domain which is running pretty smoothly.

Starting a few weeks ago, he has been having problems very sporadically where a file that has has been working with and saving frequently, in a directory he has full permissions to access, refuses to save over its previous incarnation.

To break that down: he'll be in Word, say, and he saves his file every fifteen minutes, and at some point it will refuse to save over the existing copy and it will instead pop up the Save As box. Happens in Word, Illustrator, and Pro-E, so it's not program specific.

It ONLY happens for this user, none of the others. This means to me that it is either user-specific or OS-specific, as he's the only one running Vista, too.

Some of the programs will spit out an oddly-named file (like "a3bdfe8c") before giving the error. I assume that this is because the program is attempting to save the file and then write over the old one, in an attempt to make it an ato... Read more

Question: access permission

I have my network finally able to see one another and can access public files. Some files I need to access I get a permission error, telling me I need to get permission from the administrator. I am the administrator so how do I give myself permission to do this. I did some Googleing but the only thing I can find is to right click file that I want to have permission and select properties. When I do It say I don't have permission to do this. How can I have full access to networked computer?

Hello all,

I think this is my first problem i have encountered since i bought my laptop which is running vista. Ok, maybe it;s been only a few months but still...Also, i wasn;t sure in which section this should have gone, so if i messed up i apologize.

Basically, i installed World of Warcraft and it's expansions and started patching it. When patching from 3.1.0 to 3.1.1, the process kept stoping and 70% then just exit without returning any error in return. So i thought i should run the Repair tool and try again. Only now, when i tried to access WoW.exe i got this error:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

So i came upon this little reg file called Take Ownership, i ran it but nothing has changed. Also, if i: right click wow.exe->properties->compatibility i cannot tick the "Run this program as an administrator" box.

My only options now, are a complete reinstall of the game and patches (but that's just wrong, because there has to be a more logical solution). If anybody has any ideas please let me know. I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks.

Answer:Cannot access file because i don;t have appropriate permission(WoW.exe)

WoW has been having problems with its servers. You may have to reinstall.

I have three computers, and I'm running Quickbooks accounting software on all three. Quickbooks requires all three computers to connect to the company file, stored on one computer. The file is stored on a computer called OFFICE, and OFFICE runs windows 8.1 pro. The other two computers are SHOP, running 7 pro, freshly installed at the end of december, and TOMMY, also running a fresh install of 7 pro as of last Friday. All windows copies are legitimate copies from Microsoft.

Originally, I set the network up wirelessly, and all three were communicating properly. However, quickbooks shuts down if communication to the host is lost even for a moment, and is not supposed to be compatible with wireless connections. So on Monday, I made some CAT5, ran it from each computer to the router, and got everyone hooked up to the internet. My cable tester was bad and gave me a false positive on one of my cables, resulting in me reinstalling the NIC driver in an attempt to get SHOP to recognize that it was plugged in. Eventually figured out I'd gotten a false positive, retipped the cable, and got connected properly.

Now for our network, I tried to set up set up shared files. I gave everyone permission to read/write to the file, but SHOP could not access the file. So I set up a windows homegroup on OFFICE and had TOMMY and SHOP join it. TOMMY and OFFICE can both see each other on the homegroup, but neither can see SHOP. SHOP can see both TOMMY and OFFICE. I removed all three from th... Read more

Answer:Cannot access [computer]. You may not have permission.

i run a network with quickbooks also. it is a pain. check the hosts file, go to computer, windows, system32, drivers, etc folder. open it in notepad. at the bottom, you should have the ip address and computer name of the server on the clients. there are examples in there to show you how to add them. if this is the case, then i would suggest paying for a quickbooks tech to remote onto your system and help. but first, try the forums on their site, i have used them and they are pretty good, just not too fast if you're in a hurry. quickbooks is pretty reasonable with their rates, and when they remote in, you don't have to do anything, although i would take notes while watching, i did.

Hi everyone, this is my first post.
Let me first apologize for my english :-)
I need your help because i'm getting crazy with some computer.
My office lan is quite heterogeneous : some PCs are in a local domain, other not yet.

One computer (let's call it PC-A) is a winxp professional SP2 with a shared folder for wich Guest and Everyone account permission are set up. This computer is not joined to the local domain.

The problem is that some computer (Win7) can access it and its shared folder , others can not.

More specifically i have a pc (PC-B) with Windows 7 Enterprise, not joined to the local domain , with a static ip that can access PC-A both with \\computername and \\ipaddress.
Another pc (PC-C) not joined to local domain, static ip, win 7 enterprise cannot access PC-A in any way (\\computername or \\ipaddress) but the ping works and so the remote desktop on PC-A.

A third PC (PC-D) , with win7 enterprise, is joined to the local domain(with DHCP and DNS server configured) and cannot access PC-A (the same as PC-C) . In local domain a DHCP server provides ip addresses in the same class of other pc in the lan not yet joined.

Hoping i was clear and provided the necessary information.

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere - if it has I couldn't find it - but I'm using Windows 7 and there seems to be two icons for My Documents. When I double click one of them I get the message 'You do not have permission to access this folder' which is very annoying especially since this used to happen with Vista and I'd hoped MS would've fixed the problem. Are there any solutions?

Answer:You do not have permission to access this folder!

The location of XP folders like Documents & Settings and History are no longer in the same place. They are displayed when ?hidden files? are displayed but they are ?Junctions?, i.e. they are there for historical reasons so that old programs that would normally use them are redirected to the new Vista and Windows 7 locations. Junctions can be recognised by having a little padlock on the icon and cannot be accessed.You can see a list of these folders using a command prompt. Click the Windows Orb (Start) > Run, type cmd /k dir /al (note the three spaces) and press Enter. The results will be a list of all the Junctions for the user folders, showing the name of the old XP user folder and the name of the new folder in brackets.

On my new win7 home 64bit system I wanted to share my drives so that it would work with my other winxp computer as well so I used the trick of assigning permission to "Everyone" on all my drives. This worked great (better than the homegroup). However today I decided it wasn't a great idea to share the C drive so I removed permissions for "Everyone" on the security tab thinking I was just undoing the ability to share it. OOOPS. Big mistake. Now I can't access the C drive at all even though my user acount is labled as an administrator. When I select the Security tab of the C drive properties I get the dreaded "You do not have permission to view or edit this object's permission settings."

I tried safe mode, but I get that same dreaded message.
I added a "Take Ownership" context menu (using the Ultimate Windows Tweaker), but when I right click on the c drive and click on "Take Ownership" is appears to do nothing.

Damn, damn ... I've been working away configuring my new computer and I haven't done a full Acronis backup of the C drive for three days. (I know - that was stuuupid.) I can go back to that backup, but that means many hours of work lost. Please someone tell me it is possible to undo the removal of permissions to my C drive. HELP!!!!

~Paul

Answer:I don't have permission to access my C drive!

As an update to my sad situation described above, I tried system
restore figuring that would get me back most of my work. However system restore just reported "Access Denied". Evidently I need to access the c drive to restore it. Darn again.

I also tried booting to safe mode and running "cmd" as an administrator (using my usual windows account). Then I typed the command:

takeown /f C:\ /r /d y

However I got the message "ERROR: Access is denied."

Personally I feel there should be no one way switches in any software. Sooner or later someone is going to switch it, and if you can't switch it back and you need to ... well that is more than frustrating.

I am fed up with this stupid thing!

I need to copy a file to a usb drive. I AM The Administrator. DEP is Off. I have no software running that could stop this transfer like spybot tea timer, or an anti-virus.firewall. UAC is Disabled.

My Win 7 tells Me... ME I don't have permission to access the file! The very Nerve of this thing!

I am GOD on my PC and I don't want Windows interfering in MY business! Apparently this uppity Win 7 seeks to challenge it's master. Well it's time to stop that behavior and show it who's the boss.

Any ideas?

This is strange, because I was able to copy the folder the file is in, from the Downloads folder to my Desktop.. but now suddenly I don't have permission to access the file?

System
Acer Aspire all in one
Win 7 Home premium 64 bit SP1

Problem description.
I am re-deploying a computer. I created a new admin user, then deleted all existing users. After a lot of sweat I found out about and applied the hotfix for KB article 2866086 and now all but the original admin users profile directories stay deleted!!!

However I still can't get rid of the original admin user's files. I have gone through the change ownership routine and turned UAC off but all that has done is that now when I log in as the new admin and try to delete the files I am told that I need permission from the login I'm currently using!!!

To add to my confusion, properties shows the root directory (C:Users/Old admin name) as containing > 7000 files and > 1000 folders. It is also shown with a lock symbol on the root folder although it is not shared. If there was a file equivalent in Windows for 'kill -9' I would have nuked the bloody thing.

I've even tried explaining that if it doesn't behave I'll re-program it with an axe, but Win 7 developers obviously haven't read The Hitchhikers Guide.

Short of reinstalling the OS from scratch has anyone got any useful suggestions?

Thanks in anticipation

Answer:Don't have permission to access folder - yet again

When I've run into stubborn cases I have booted to a Linux LiveCD or LiveDVD and deleted from within its file manager. Booting Windows next may give some squacks but running a reputable Registry cleaner helps. Many say not to use such a program but I've had no problems doing so. I don't use it until nothing else works and never as a routine thing.

Hello DJCool, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You might see if taking ownership of the XP drive with the Replace owner of subcontainers and objects box checked, then set permissions to "Allow" your account "Full control" of the drive may allow you to have access afterwards.

(Option Three)
Take Ownership of a File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 8

(Option Two)

Hey Everyone

I recently just did a complete new install from Windows 7 7227 to Windows 7 7600 RTM.

The issue is
I have 2 HD's installed on My Computer. One is System (for my OS) and one is Logical (for my stuff). Before I did a complete install and was running on Windows 7 7227, I had My Music folder attached to a folder I made with other music on it, on my other HD (Logical Drive) so if I reformatted, I would still have My Music on my other drive.

But, now that I've reformatted and did a clean install, I've tried to attach my folder with my music in it to the My Music folder and it just keeps seem to be giving me an error prompt, so I went into my other HD and opened my music folder and now I can't seem to play any music tracks that's inside the folder.

I've no idea why it's doing this, can someone help me, I can't seem to access them.

The error it gives me is

You don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click Continue to permanently get access to this folder.

I've went through the procedure that it gives me to get permission but when I applyed it, it only does it to the folder, not the sub folders or files. Can anyone help me to restore it back to the previous version so I can fully access it without any problems.

Thank you.

Answer:You don't currently have permission to access this fold

Hi Gareth,

It is not complicated if you follow this little tutorial:

You don't have to do this for every subfolders, just the main folder.

Rightclick the folder -> chose properties -> chose security tab
Click on advanced -> click the owner tab -> click on the edit button

Click on your username -> check the box: Owner of underlying containers and object.

click a few times ok until your are back in the explorer.
Now rightclick the folder again -> Chose security again -> click on edit

click on add.-> type your username in the white area, and click on check name.

click ok once. You are now in the security box again.

now select your user name and in the permission box select full control.

Click ok

Your done.

If it doesn't work for you, I'll make some screenshots.
Good luck.

My desktop computer was on and then the power went out. After the power came back up, it would not boot into windows and I get a message telling me to start the recovery console and to try to repair windows. I did and that didn?t work. So I checked on the Microsoft site and found the procedure ?Guided Help to recover a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from starting? This procedure has three steps 1. Copy the five registry files to a backup location and then copy the files from the repair folder to the system folder, 2. Copy the five registry files from a restore snapshot to a temp location and rename them, 3. Then copy the renamed files to the system folder.

I am running win XP SP2 on a power spec PC.


So I ran the first step of this procedure and got the PC to boot into windows. I was not able to run step two or three because there were no restore points. The system restore was never turned on. In addition, all of the former user accounts were gone and only the OEM accounts were present. Because of this I don?t have access to anything including running the user setup in control panel. I get a message that the device, folder, or file is not available. You may not have permission to access these??

Hi everyone, I have an old hard drive that has firefox and with boomarks etc. Id like to import these bookmarks etc into a new installation of firefox. The problem I have is I get the You don't have permission to access this folder.

I believe I am accessing the right folder which is under documents and settings.

Thank's for any help

Answer:You don't have permission to access this folder

FF has its folders in two places:
users [user] appdata local mozilla...
users [user] appdata roaming mozilla...
Which folder can't be accessed? Normally, the above two folders are no trouble to access.

Answer:you don't currently have permission to access this folder

Try Take Ownership Shortcut on the folders or drive.

Can you plug in the drive internally?

You can always Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or use Paragon Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0 Free CD to another HD which require no permissions.

I'm hoping someone can help me. Recently my laptop has started denying me access to most of my programs. I cannot access any program that does not have the Run as Administrator option. I have Windows Vista and as far as I know I haven't changed any of the settings or security so I'm not sure why it is doing this all of a sudden. The code that I get reads as follows:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file.You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
Can anybody tell me how to fix this?

I have a folder on the D partition on a computer that originally had XP on it that I formatted both partitions during setup and installed the OS on C: and I use D: for frequently used images and my Windows 7 themes images. I have a folder that has about 300 screenshots from various animes of some of my favorite characters. it has been there since the install in 2014. But now every time I try to access the folder, I get an error message you don't currently have permission to access this folder. and I have to allow it via UAC. I did a web search of the message and only found results about working with files in the root of C drive or system files. I found nothing in regards to a folder I created myself that has only jpg and png images in it. What could be the problem?

Hi, i have this problem that i cannot solve. i know why it happened but i was kinda trying stuff without really knowing what i was doing, so now i turn to this forum cause i tried all i could think/find and i still cant solve my mistake.

I had two HD,
C: with XP pro sp3 and linux (dual boot)
D: formated in ntfs with all extra data (songs, video, reports, receipt etc..)

When i had these two working normally, i needed to restrict the access of the second HD (the D to only one computer on the network so i messed around with the permission. I ended up deleting the whole list;
it was looking like this (under the security tab of the HD properties)
"Administrator"
"SYSTEM"
"User" X\username"

So i deleted these, it gave me problems , then i found how to re-take owner ship. but i only re-added

"User" X\username

i could then again access my files on the D: . but i still couldnt share my files as i wanted for some reason. so i decided to re-install windows...big mistake!!

I formated the C:, re-installed windows on it, no problem with that. But now i see the second HD in windows explorer as RAW and access is denied. Meaning the HD is detected and listed there, but the used space and total space amount is not showing, if i click properties, instead of NTFS its says RAW. If i try to open it to explore the content, i get an access denied message.

Hello Everyone, because I didn't want people to access my files and I needed to leave my PC turned on in the office, I went to my drive E properties, then security tab then edit and switched my controls from Full control "Allow" to "Deny" locked with a password. I checked it wasn't opening. There we go! Success.
Later on
Failure;
Because now even though I have the password removed, I re-installed my windows 7 to the same 32-bit version. It isn't opening
I changed the controls from full control "Deny" to "Allow" but I can't get access to them. I tried opening it somehow(don't exactly remember how) but still if I have to open up any of the files, I'll have to go to that particular sub folder and file to the properties, security tab, allow full controls and then it opens.
Now I have more than 8 thousand files in it.
Moreover, after re-installing my windows, I can't open my files anyway.
Can someone please help me. I'm assuming this website will notify me if someone leaves a reply to this thread.

Hi,
I have copied my photos to a portable hard drive for backup purposes and can see them and print them but I do not have permission to copy or move them to another location either on the remote drive or to my pc.
The file permission is owned by root (Unix User\root).
I have tried altering this via the file or its folder properties but once again I do not have permission.
I have tried this on my desktop (windows XP)and my laptop (windows 7).
I am the administrator on both PCs.

Answer:File access permission

"The file permission is owned by root (Unix User\root)."
Really? That's an indication that the files were on a Unix server, and if that's the case the file owner has to modify the permissions using the chmod command.

New laptop that will not allow me to access certain folders. I have gone into the Folder option in the Control Panel and marked off show me everything but when I attempting to access the "Documents and Settings" folder in the C drive I'm denied access.

There is only one person created for the computer......... me. The computer also shows a "owner".

So the questions is how do I change the "permissions" to give access to all folder on the C drive?
 

Answer:Permission to Access Folders

Documents and Settings isn't actually a folder, it a Junction (aka Reparse Point or Symbolic Link) pointing to the new location, which is C:\Users.
Users (Even the Administrator) don't have access to the Junctions so they don't accidentally get moved or deleted, which could make programs not written for the new locations to stop working, or even crash.
You can give yourself access on the Security tab (right click, click Properties), but there is nothing inside to access.

Lots of folders have changed from XP. Just takes a while to get used to it.
Here's a few of the new locations:
My Pictures, My Music, My Videos–Where did they go?
And more info:

Hi kiasu

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

You might consider running an online virus scan at the following:

Run an online Anti-Virus scan from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites
Trendmicro HouseCall
PandaActiveScan
SymantecSecurityScan
RavAntiVirusScanOnline
Allow them to clean/delete any spyware/malware or viruses/trojans they may find.
Make a note of any files flagged that were unable to be cleaned or deleted.

Download, Install and check each of the following Spyware tools for updates:
(If you already have the following, please make sure it is the latest version and has been updated)
Ad-Aware SE 1.05:
Click on Full System Scan and deselect Search for negligible risk entries. Have Ad-Aware SE remove what it finds.
Spybot-S&D 1.3:
Have it fix what it finds marked in Red.
Spyware Blaster 3.4:
Click on Updates > Check for Updates Switch to Protection
Under Quick Tasks click Enable All Protection. Close Spyware Blaster.

To begin with I hope this is the right forum to present my issue. I've read some post's and cannot make heads or tails of most. I'm not very tecchy. I am running WinXP-Pro (SP3) and have an external HD (372GB). Somehow, the majority of my data (folders and files) on this drive has been moved to a LONG numbered folder and made inaccessible to me. I have paid a couple of online services for tech support and they cannot restore my accessibility to this data.

I am told that someone with a Linux system can access the data on this drive and change the permissions enabling me access again. A Windows based system will not work. They would have to copy and paste the data into new folders. I'm not a tech and really don't know what they are talking about. I am just echoing what was said to me. I don't even know if what I have been told is valid or not. Is there someone here with knowledge of both Windows and Linux that can at least tell me if this is true or not. I don't want to continue wasting my time and money if I'm only spinning my wheels.

What I do know, is that I don't have the money to be spending on services that in the end tell me, "Oh well, we can't help you, but if you go here, they will." This, and only to be played the same tune at the next stop! I don't have the resources to continue paying out and not getting results.

Can someone point me to a service that can help me. What I have been denied access to is very important to me and I am at a loss here. ... Read more

Hello geeks,

So I was going through my Program Files to delete unwanted folders and files but I keep running into this message even after I changed the Permission settings in the Security Properties of the Program Files Folder. My account is set as administrator but it wants me to get administrator permission. Also under "Group or user name" are the TrustedInstaller, System, Creator Owner necessary to have there? One last question, why is there two Administrator usernames "Administrators username/Administrator" and "Users username\Users" because I only have one account on here and I'm the only one that uses it?

P.S. I'm attaching some snapshots of these messages. Thanks everyone.
 

Answer:Folder Permission Access Denied

What account are you currently logged into on that computer? Its possible that you are logging in as a temp profile that does not have the proper permissions.

The TrustedInstaller, System, and Owner should be in the permissions for those folders so leave those in there.

An easy way to see what profile you are logged in as would be just going to the Downloads folder and verify the path is your actual username and not some Temp profile.

Also it looks as if this computer is part of a domain or all these all local accounts?
