Unable to display current owner - icacls and Long Filenames
Posted on 2010-09-01
Im trying to ascertain file permissions, owner etc. Since the GUI doesnt work, Im using icacls but it cant handle long filenames or filenames with spaces so I want the filenames in 8.3 format. For filenames with spaces, I tried putting the full filename in quotes, that returned 'Access is denied'. Filena~1.exe returned 'file cannot be found' I dont want a .bat or a .vbs. I just want the file security settings in the least number of steps (KISS method). One file at a time using icacls at the command line is preferable.
