Permissions and MP3S

My permissions were changed in the Users fodler on my windows 2000 sevrer.... i fixed them and all is good.... except my "my music" folder in ONLY my user folder can no longer play mp3s. Get the error in WMP10 that it cant read the file cause i dont have permission/access denied. Played around got a small separate folder of mp3s to play but this large folder seems permanently damaged.... since i have about 1,000 mp3 sin there i want to keep them? how cna i fix this?

Hi severegreen1,
Have you made yourself the owner of the directory and given yourself full control?

Right click on your My Music folder, rlick properties, click the security tab, click the advanced button, add an entry for yourself with full control and then check the "Replace permission entries on all child objects..." button.  When you click OK, it should replace the permissions on all your mp3s.

Hi,

You could also try to create a new folder, and give yourself permissions, then, copy all the files (if you can access them) to this new folder (don't move, cause permissions won't change). This will change the permissions on the files, maybe this does the trick.. (first off all try to change permissions like Anom said, gives you a better option)..

In this case, in that same window where you can replace permission entries on child objects, go to the Owner tab, Highlight administrators or your account in the "Change owner to:" box, check the "Replace owner on

Oops, somehow hit send before i wanted to on that one =P

continuing, check the "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" box, and then click apply.  Once you have taken ownership of them, you should be able to go back to the permissions tab and do what I said in my previous post.

Cheers
