Reassigning 'Creator' rights on a whole hdd. Option to add is greyed out.
Posted on 2004-08-01
Ok I did something really stupid without thinking of the consequences, I was having issues writing to my share on a win2k3 server box, so I removed all the users and groups from the security tab on that share(which happened to be the whole hdd). Now the only object showing is the 'Everyone' , but it only has read & Execute on it. So now I cannot add any more objects to the security tab including the creator or owner or anything. Essentially the share is sitting there and no data can be written to it or no one can take ownership of it as it cannot inherit any permissions either. Is there a way to get around this so I can continue to writie to the server?
Thanks in advance.
