windows 2003 - admin wants access to users folder
Posted on 2013-01-25
hi i have a windows 2003 domain running:
- master dc 2003 ad/dns/dhcp server
- file server
- xp desktop
note: im also running 'shadow copies' on my: filenprint server.!!
note: domain user: jamesf - has accidentally deleted a file & requires it back!!
my domain user can logon to domain and save data so when the user logs off the data is uploaded automatically to the: \\filenprint\profileroam - successfully
when i logon to the file server and right click the domain user ie:
\\filenprint\profileroam\jamesf, & locate the 'owner' tab it states:
current owner of this item: unable to display current owner.
change owner to: shows 2 x administrators
- administrator (itservices\administrator)
- administrators (filenprint\administrator)
qns1. i wish to be able to take ownership of the folder so that i can return the deleted file back to 'jamesf', but im worried that the 'jamesf' will not be able to log back on, if i take ownership. so can someone advise on what i need to do. i assume i should select: administrators (filenprint\administrator) to take ownership & then click 'ok', but how do i give back 'ownership' back to domain user: jamesf ?
