Unable to set new owner on "file". Access is denied.
Posted on 2009-07-09
My users are using romaing profiles in a Windows Server 2008 AD enviroment. Suddenly, some users start reporting that they could not access their files. In my investigation I noticed that it was happening only to some files under the My Documents folders, not all of them are inaccesible. If I try to take ownership of the file it fails with the following error message "Unable to set new owner on "file". Access is denied." Is there is any way that I could force to take ownership of those files.?
In other cases I can take ownership, open the file to edit it but when I am going to save it will not let me save any changes even when I am the owner of the file,
