Folder control lock-out

Hi There,

I am running SBS on a clients machine. After losing some folders for whatever reason (maliciousness?) i tightened security on the folders.

It seems i tightened the permissions too much, as i have locked myself and everyone else out by accident. i cannot change permissions, access folder contents, or move/delete.

I'm in quite a bind.

I  have used the following with no success.
CACLS "c:\Users Shared Folders" /E /T /C /G "Administrators":F
CACLS "c:\Users Shared Folders" /E /T /C /G "Everyone":F
CACLS "c:\Users Shared Folders\leandet" /E /T /C /G "Administrators":F

please can someone assist me in giving me access to the permissions editing at least.


Your help is always appreciated.

Richard

Take ownership of the folder, then change the permissions as desired.
