Running Windows 7 pro on HP z230.
I am trying to copy an file named autorun.inf from one directory to another. I can copy all files except this one.
I right click on the autorun.inf file, click on Copy, then move to the destination directory and click paste. I get the message “File Access denied”.
I then log in as administrator and try to copy the file. Same message.
I right click on the inf file and click on Properties. I click on Security. It tells me I must have administrative permissions. Well, I do, I am logged in as administrator. The administrator account name is donadmin
The next screen shows ownership. Under current owner it says : “unable to display current owner”. This file did come from an old computer which used to be connected to a domain.
So I try to change the owner. I click on “Other users or groups” In the box labeled “Enter the object name to select” I type in donadmin. The name is verified to be correct. I click on OK to exit the “Advanced Security settings for Autorun.inf” and I get the error: Unable to set new owner on Autorun.inf.
I have the same problem for all the inf files I want to copy.
What must I do to successfully copy this inf file??
