Cannot reset permissions in Windows 2000 Pro
Posted on 2004-10-09
I have a Windows 2000 Pro machine set up with three accounts: mine, my wife's, and an administrator. I created a second share name for the C drive and set the permissions to myself only. Windows warned me that that would change all permissions (I should have stopped here). After doing this, I could not access the C drive from either my wife's account or the administrator's account.
I then removed this second share and created another share with permissions set to myself, my wife and the administrator's account. I still couldn't access the C drive from my wife's account or the administrator's account.
I then tried to reset the permissions on the default share C$ from my account and got the following error message: "This has been shared for administrative purposes. The permissions cannot be set."
How can I reset the permisisons for the default share or get the computer to recognize the second share as the default share?
I need to get this computer up and running ASAP!
Thanks for your help.
