  • allowed parameters for icacls

    Hello all !

    I have been having some access denied errors on a windows 7 pro SP1 PC during backup.

    I tried to give myself (domain admin) full permissions by using the following syntax: iCACLS c:\users\TheUser /E /T /C /G domain.local\administrator:F

    Everywhere I look this seems to be the correct syntax, however it first fails saying /E is a bad argument.

    If I remove the /E it then says /G is a bad parameter. Removing the /E and replacing /G with /GRANT works but I just wonder why the command is not working as documented.

    Any ideas or am I reading the documentation wrong?

    Thanks for your time.

    Windows 8 syntax (Win7 should be the same): http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../cc753525.aspx

    No /E and no abbreviation for /GRANT by the look of it

      Thanks Ossian,

      That wasn't the same documentation I was looking at, but apparently the article I should have been looking for
