Cant gain access to files - domain security
Posted on 2006-06-29
In our computer domain (Win2000 ActiveDirectory), I have a folder shared over the network, and only I had access. I dumped a bunch of files in a "backup" directory. My PC crashed recently, and I have a new PC. Im trying to move my files BACK onto my PC, but I'm getting a "you don't have permission" error.
So, I went to the server, intending to re-set the permissions on the folder as administrator, but even ADMINISTRATOR doesnt have access to the backup files. I have no idea how that could have happened.
I have tried disabling inheritance from the parent (which I *CAN* access) and copying the permissions to children.
I tried just resetting permissions to administrator / "full control".
In all cases, I dont have the correct permissions.
What can I try next?
