I am running a server 08 file server and got the message that the recycle bin on C:\ is corrupted. I will attach a screen shot of the message. I am also having an issue that one of our backups failed and the reason is that the sytem account did not have access to a system file in the windows folder. I went in to repair the permissions and it would not let me, it said I did not have the appropriate permissions for this. The owner of the file is TrustedInstaller, so it is apparent I have permission issues and since this all happed at the same time it is possible that they are related. So is there a way to fix this without wiping and reloading my file server. If I have to do that it is going to blow out all my users folder permissions on there shares and also there folder redirection that goes to this server.

1. Open an elevated Command Prompt window. To open an elevated Command Prompt, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

2. Type the following command and press ENTER:

rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin

I forgot to mention that you need to logoff and logon again to refresh the session and you will see the new working recycle bin.

In regarding to permission, what system account did you logon? Did you mean local administrator or domain admin?

That fised the recycle bin, and I have logged in as both the local admin and as a domain admin. I am not getting access to modify the permission, which is kinda critical.

You may try to run chkdsk /F in command line then reboot your server and let us know the status.

I reread you message and saw the owner is TrustInstall. Why don't you login as Local Administrator and take the ownership of the folder. Security permission --> Advanced --> Owner (tab) and check the option: replace owner on subcontainers and objects then OK. That will put your local admin to the owner group of the folder. You can do the same with Domain Admin.

What we are wondering is how will this affect access to the system and would I need to change the owner back to TrustInstall?

How to take ownership of a folder
You must have ownership of a protected folder in order to access it. If another user has restricted access and you are the computer administrator, you can access the folder by taking ownership.

To take ownership of a folder, follow these steps:
Right-click the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then click Properties.
Click the Security tab, and then click OK on the Security message (if one appears).
Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.
In the Name list, click your user name, or click Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group. If you want to take ownership of the contents of the folder, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.
Click OK, and then click Yes when you receive the following message:
You do not have permission to read the contents of directory folder name. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control?
All permissions will be replaced if you click Yes.

Note folder name is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of.
Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and its contents.

No, you don't. Your TrustInstall will also be the owner of the folder and will not be removed. You will see it next time when you get back in Owner tab. You can have several owners at a time.

Adding the Admin to the owner of a folder will not affect to your security setting of the entire system. You just grant access to Administrator to that particular shared folder.

That seems to have fixed this issue but I would like you to take a look at one of my other questions that involves this same server. Here is the question ID:24570326
