"Access denied" on Windows Server files locally
Posted on 2011-03-14
After modifiying some permissions on a Windows Server 2003, i have problems accessing subfolders of "D:\DIR\" from the local console. In my example I use YYYYY as one of the erroneous directories.
ROBIN\Administrateur and BUILTIN\Administrators are all defined as OWNERS in each of the directories, but I get an "Access is denied"-error when accessing "D:\DIR\YYYYY" with any Account, even the Administrator accounts.
So I opened the properties->Security tab of the foler and I get the error: "You do not have permission to view or edit the current permission settings for YYYYY, but you can take ownership or change auditing settings."
So I checked what it says, I opened the "Advanced security settings" and checked the "Owner" tab. My current user was listed, but I can't change permissions for the YYYYY directory. (I've tried with local admin and domain admin.)
Summary of the current permissions:
Access is denied.
