Greetings.

I've got a share that has files in it that I can't do anything to.
Even if i remove the share, I still can't access these files.

I'm doing this from the server itself.
I have full domain privileges
I've tried:
-propagating permissions on all childs and it comes back with a LOAD of errors that it can't touch
-removing the share
-creating a new share with full permissions to everyone.
-Copy the folder to a new location (i get the error: access denied)


I need to be able to edit ALL of those files in each of those subfolders and I've tried everything I can think of.

"I have full domain privileges" - presumably this is a domain controller?

Try this from a command prompt:

cacls E:\YourFolder /G Everyone:F /C <Enter>

yes it's on a domain controller.
I removed the share on the folder and created a new share on the parent folder(parent to the folder I had shared) and it allowed me to replace all settings on ALL child folders/files, including the ones that were locked.  Go figure.

but for fun, what does your command do?

Haha - I just re-toured your website last night...
If you're referring to the lounge, I'm afraid it got a bit too unruly for me to spend a lot of time there.  And I don't care to get suspended (I can get pretty nasty when someone insults the color of nail polish I'm using).

Been away for a while, then decided to start answering questions again, and got re-addicted...<sigh>
There goes the holidays...lol
