  • Taking ownership of files and permissions

    Hi Guys,

    Pretty quick question really.

    If theres a folder I don't have access too (and i am administrator) when I go and take opwership of the folder and folders further down the tree, should windows strip out all existing permissions?

    I thought it left permissions in place but have you full control as creator/owner. I tested this and it stripped out all permissions and gave administrators group the full permissions.

    can anyone explain?

    I've seen this happen to me as well. I'm looking for a solution for you (us) as well. I'll keep you posted. I fear it may be by design though.

      Seems to be possibly by design..Though not sure..But using takeown.exe is a better option while taking ownerships and specially if you have complex hierchies,..
