Change Windows ACLs or Accessing files from Sys_Vol_Inf
A part of the question from this links;
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Pascal/Delphi/Q_25871114.html
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Editors_IDEs/Delphi/Q_24046705.html

That's right the real question is how to access files from protected Sys_Vol_Inf folder, even if you are not an administrator account.

code snippet;
fext3 := ExtractFiledir(PathFile);
po:= ansipos('System Volume Information', fext3);
if po>0 then
begin
TakeOwnership(PChar(fext3));
//showmessage(PathFile);
//Access / ScanS files here
end;

IS that all for winxp?


What about for win7?

you must be an administrator (in "Administrator" group in Windows) for doing it

What about if the application running and accessing sys_vol_inf is not on the administrator mode, is there any option to access files from sysvol_inf?

I don't know if Aflarin' listening, but I know he can clear this out, I'm not asking of the code, because I have already the code, the fact is how am I going to use it, where when.
Like this code snippe?t;

fext3 := ExtractFiledir(PathFile);
po:= ansipos('System Volume Information', fext3);
if po>0 then
begin
TakeOwnership(PChar(fext3));
//showmessage(PathFile);
//Access / ScanS files here
end;
?

The answer is not completely detailed, about accessing files from Sys_Vol_Inf, anyway if you have time to write, please don't hesitate.
