I have denied myself and everyone else access to the C drive of our server - can somebody help
Posted on 2003-10-23
I was trying to reconfigure security settings on the server to restrict access by certain users. The C drive had been originally shared and allowed full access to 'everyone' becasue 'everyone' only included trusted users. With some new users coming online I thought I would reconfigure this by removing the access to everyone, and then start again with new access rights to specific groups. Unfortunately, the result of this is that I now have no access to the contents or the security settings of the C drive (when logged on as Administrator). I can't open the administrator console, or run . The C drive now shows as not shared, and I dont have permission to change this.
Before you all laugh too much, I am only the network administrator by default becasue I work for a small company and I know more than most about computers, but apparantly from my last achievement, not enough yet.
I'm not sure what to try now, I was reluctant to re-boot, as it may not be possible to restart without access to the c drive.
I would like to award this 500 points for importance of resolution, but I only have 125 points available, and the site currently wont accept my credit card details to purchase more. I'm a new user, and I don't know if this is possible, but if anyone can help me sort this out I'll award 1000 points once I can get through to billing and get my credit card authorised.
