Changing File Permissions on Windows XP.

Q: Changing File Permissions on Windows XP.

Hi,

I run Windows XP Home Edition. I have recently installed an Apache server, and have my website running from my computer, but have a few problems. I want to install vBulletin, but it requires me to change the permissions on a file from 644 to 666. I know you can do this over FTP or UNIX, but how would I do this on Windows XP?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Preferred Solution: Changing File Permissions on Windows XP.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I currently have a powerpoint presentation along with 2 videos that were embedded into it in a folder I made to organize the presentation. BUt I can no longer open or move the presentation because now "Access is Denied." The videos were orginally in the My Videos folder and the presentation was in My Documents and when I moved all three of them into the same folder the permissions changed. I had to killbox the two videos and re-downloaded them but I don't have time to redo the presentation.

The presentation is due tomorrow and I'm freaking out.

I bought a new computer last October or November from HP with Windows 7 Pro loaded on it. I have had no problems with it. I recently let my friend borrow my external hard drive to transfer some files and, as I expected, when I got it back I had to reset the file permissions. Rather than doing it one file at a time I used ICACLS in the command prompt to batch change file permissions. Apparently doing so screwed up my update and backup settings because now Windows says that my copy is not genuine. Something to do with Windows update. I tried to change the group policy security settings but it wont let me change anything. I only used ICACLS to change the file permissions on one folder on my external hard drive. It backs up to that hard drive but on an entirely different parallel folder. Any ideas? I cant use the recovery because I get the error

"A Volume Shadow Copy Service Component encountered an unexpected error. Check the Application event log for more information (0x80042302)"

I cant even figure out where the "event log" is to check it. Thanks

I've been called to assist with a PC having some issues. The PC is a Compaq Presario desktop running XP home which is fairly old based on the 80GB HDD and the fact that it's got a 3.5" FDD. Sorry I don't have more specs but don't know that it's relevant to the question.

The events as I know them are;
There was an infection with what I believe was a variation of the blaster worm which was causing the PC to reboot and redirecting the IE7 web browser. I helped via remote access to get a copy of AVG on the PC and killed that bug.

The owner then did what any typical owner would. Applied ALL MS updates. Unfortunately this included SP3. After the SP was applied the PC fails to boot in any mode. Troubleshooting and fixing this will be discussed in more detail in a separate topic.

This topic is about trying to get data files off of the PC before anything else is done. My approach seemed simple. Pull the HDD, attach it to a USB/SATA adapter and copy files to new host PC (running XP home as well). Solid plan that worked well for some files. However the user had stored most of their cherished photos in a folder on the desktop. When I tried to access this folder from the new host I got 'access denied' (don't recall the precise wording but can post it later if needed). I could only see that the C:\documents and settings\owner\desktop folder was there, but could see nothing in it.

OK - plan B. After a little research I decided to make ... Read more

I am trying to move files from my old XP computer (to be called OLD from now on) to my new Vista computer (to be called NEW) over my network. In some folders, there are some files that don't have the correct permissions for me to move them. I get this message on NEW when I try to copy them over:

Destination Folder Access Denied
You need permission to perform this action

The folder that these files are in on OLD has the correct permissions set, but for some reason some, not all, of the files within it have not inherited the correct permissions level. I can't figure out how to change the permissions level of these individual files. When I right-click on the problematic files in OLD, I do not see a Security tab.

I've come into contact with Mandriva Linux. I know of a concept called standard permissions, that it provides. It's pretty convienient. I don't exactly know how it really works under the hood or anything, and I don't need to know exactly how it works right now either, even though it's probably available.

What I want to do, in effect, is create a feature pretty close to equivelant of this feature, only for Windows XP. I want to set standard permissions using a batch file. Whenever this batch file is run as administrator it can enforce the permissions. What are these permissions it enforces? Well, what I want is for these permissions to be gotten from a text file. The syntax in no way resembles the syntax of the Linux file I'm describing.

Basically the syntax is this:
PATH <TAB> MODE <TAB> USER1,USER2,... <TAB> PERM
PATH <TAB> MODE <TAB> USER1,USER2,... <TAB> PERM
...
The path is the path to a file or folder in exact syntax. The mode is one of the switches that can be given for XCACLS in the Windows Resource Kit thingy. This can be replace, edit, etc. The users are the user or group to add/replace/remove/etc, and there is a comma allowed so more than one user or group is allowed to be specified. The permissions are the permissions that you can specify in the utillity.

So the first thing the script needs to do, is call some program that safely detects whether or not the filesystem is NTFS or not. If the sys... Read more

I recently looked at my D drive, to find out that every file and folder in the D drive has a S-1-5-21.... account under the security tab. However the D drive itself does not. When I do to delete it, it tells me I cannot because it is inheriting permissions from its parent. But The D drive itself (The parent) doesn't have that user. So first, can you explain this.
So, I go and stop it from inheriting permission, and then delete it.. The issue is that this is quite time consuming. I basically want to remove this user on every file and folder on the drive at once. Now how do I do that?
I would be perfectly happy removing all the file permissions for all the files (Yes, I know that leaves them unaccessable) and then just adding them, as adding them to the D drive itself will cause all the child objects to inherit them, yes?

Hello all,
I have a custom application that was written in Labview. As part of the application, the user wanted some of the program configurations saved. In Windows XP, I would typically store the configuration (or ini) file in the same subdirectory as the executable. This cannot be done in Windows 7 due to file permissions in the Program Files subdirectory. I determined that there is a hidden subdirectory call ProgramData that is supposed to be used for this purpose. Everything works fine if only one account uses the software. The configuration file can be written and read properly. Unfortunately many users will be using the software and they all would like to log into the computer under their own account. If a different user logs in, the software can read the file but cannot modify the file with any changes that the new user made. All users have administrative privileges and the permissions on the files seem to allow RW privileges. The only exception that I have found is that the owner of the file somehow plays a part in this but I cannot seem to figure out a way around it (other than everyone logging in as the same user).

Any ideas? Is there another place on the hard drive that is supposed to be used for this purpose that allows full RW privileges?

Thanks!

Yesterday I got the sudden urge to go back to Linux, so I installed Slackware 10.1 to a partition on my second hard drive. During this process, I installed the bootloader to the master boot record, yet somehwere in the process my Windows XP installation got messed up so I could not load XP off of my first hard drive.

Today I formatted my second hard drive that I had installed Slackware on and installed Windows XP to it. All my files are still on my first hard drive as well as my original Windows XP installation, however I cannot access any of my files that were in My Documents, on the Desktop, in My Music, My Pictures, nothing. I presume this is because I decided on my last XP installation [that was to that first original hard drive] not to allow other users to view my files. Is there any way to access these files now that I've reinstalled XP? I could access them from Linux, but now I cannot access them and it is very frustrating. Thanks!

Hi y'all,
I'm an experienced Windows user (far too many years), but only a newbie Win7 user. I simply cannot fathom the security set-up they've implemented, and I'm kinda wondering whether anyone here knows more than I do.

I'm trying to use a VMware Virtual Machine on an external drive whilst logged-in into an administrator account. (Now wait before you start trolling about Microsoft's virtualisation is so much better and I should be asking on the VMware forums: read on)

According to the Security tab on Properties for the directory in which the VM files are all stored, the Administrator group has Full Control. But, when I start the VM, all I keep getting is a message stating that:

Error while powering on: Unable to open file "I:\TripleG\c-cl2.vmdk": Insufficient permission to access file.

Checking on the VMware forums, there are a few people who've had this message, but on every occasion, it's been because the file was Read Only. Check the file's attributes, no such issue. After a bit more playing around, I decide that maybe the reason is that the Users security group only has read and execute rights to the directory. So, using Properties / Security, I clkick the Edit button, I highlight the Users group, I change permissions to Full Control and hit the Apply button.

I almost want to troll just because you said that.

I, personally have no preference as I don't use virtualization that much. Everyone has their own opinions. Some here like Microsoft's some like VMWare. Oh well. Life goes on.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a good utility or application I could use to scan an NT server for a listing of Folder and File permissions for an NTFS file system? Thanks in advance!
 

A:Windows NT File/Directory Permissions

I found 2 command line utilities in the NT 4.0 Resource Kit. They are SHOWACLS.EXE & SRVCHECK.EXE. Unfortunately SHOWACLS lists the permissions for every single file and directory on the specified server. This creates a large document with more info than I need. SRVCHECK is supposed to scan only Shared folders, but keeps returning back with an "Unknown Error: 203", which MS doesn't seem to have a fix for. Are there any 3rd party utils or options in the Resource kit I may have missed that will scan all shares(even hidden), and give me back a listing of permissions?

Received our shiny new PC's at work this week. I can set up Windows 2000 pretty easily but XP Pro is confusing me slightly.

As far as I'm aware it is all set up correctly. Our existing work network uses a Workgroup cause although we have a domain, our Samaba interface client is too old to be adapted for this. Soo.... I want to add users (manually) and set file permissions. Now, this is easy enough in Win2k but for some reason, according to the help files in XP Pro, you must have a domain installed before being able to use file permissions.

I checked one of our Windows 2000 servers at work and it is working using only a workgroup but has permissions activated. Why can't I do this with XP Pro? My only security options when going into Properties for a file or folder are to make them private or shared.

Help!

I have been wrestling with file permissions on my computer. I've searched online and found a couple of ways to make changes to files and directories - using Safe Mode and Cacls. Safe Mode is the only way I've managed to get to work, but I can't modify the permissions for every file on the drive, only files and folders individually. I imagine there is something fairly simple that I'm missing. Any Ideas?

I've been working on a clients malware infected machine (vundo almost made me cry) and all was going well until about an hour ago.

I had successfully quarantined off the major infections and was in the process of cleaning them out when (after a reboot) all windows users suddenly lacked the ability to execute applications. I get the infamous "windows cannot access the specified device path or file" message when i try to do just about anything. No applications will startup and the machine is completely closed for any kind of normal machine business. I can however run applications in safe mode and open the recovery console.

It's an XP SP2 Dell Desktop, about 3 years old. It's within a month of being up-to-date on it's windows updates. It's also loud, large and a poorly kept machine.

I'm not sure how much information to volunteer about this issue as I've never dealt with such an intransigent machine and am not sure exactley where the problem is coming from.

I had just finished an antivir virus scan (for the third time) and was rebooting before I ran hijackthis again under a different user. After the reboot the machine was locked (before i had a chance to run hijack this).

What can I do to fix this and/or what information about this issue would be most helpful for me to provide?

Hi Ishaqkhan,

Please follow this guide:






Quote:
Changing Ownership

First, lets talk about ownership. To change ownership, right-click any file or folder, select Properties, and go to Security tab. Now click the Advanced button(shown in the screenshot below).

Next, you need to go to Owner tab and hit the Edit button. Then in the new dialog window choose the new owner and then click OK.




Changing Permission

If you are an administrator and cannot access a folder, this is due to permission error. To give complete permission to yourself, right-click the file or folder and select Properties. Now go to Security tab, and hit the Edit button.
Here select your username(account) and check the Full Control checkbox. When done, hit OK. Note that when you will check the Full Control checkbox, all others will be automatically checked too.

I've got a really strange one and I hope someone can help me. I've noticed that some folders (most, actually) in my C: and D: drives (both internal hard drives) have lock icons appearing on them. Looking at their Properties -> Security tab, there are no permissions set for any of them.

I'll bet I unwittingly ran a malicious program at some point which has caused this problem. At the same time, my internet connection has become quite spotty, and I'm sure the two symptoms are linked somehow.

My PC is a custom-built system with some high-end parts I just bought in February: Intel i7-920, Dominator 6GB DDR3, ATI HD5870, 80GB SSD & 1.5TB HDD, etc. The OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Let me know if you need any further details and I'll gladly post them.

Ok so the user account control thing is pretty ridiculous and wouldn't even let me change files in my program files folder and I am the only user on this comp so I am the admin. I had to turn off UAC to get access but I want to be able to have full access to my files but keep UAC on. Is there any way to turn UAC on and still have the ability to change files in my folders? I turned if off and tried to go into the permissions and give my username full access but it still wouldn't let me do it.

A:Changing UAC permissions

Hi -

The \program files folder is virtualizable and should be left alone. Make up a 2nd folder. Vista likes to play hide and seek -

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927387

If x64 it gets even more interesting.

Activate the Vista hidden admin account - it has 2 user tokens like the admin accounts in XP. Vista regular admin accts have 1 token; the UAC kicking in gets the 2nd to allow business to continue.

Keep in mind that if you use only the hidden admin account, Windows Updates will not install certain security updates. A 1 token admin account has to be logged on from time-to-time. Also, if you set a password for this account and forget it, lose it, etc... re-install of Vista next b/c you will be locked out of your system. You do need both accounts - so don't delete either one.

Do this to activate hidden admin --

START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe above under programs - select run as admin. Then type

Code:

net user administrator /active:yes


Logoff your account and the user account named Administrator will be waiting for you at the logon screen. 2x-click on it.

You can re-run that command at any time - change the 'yes' to 'no' to put the admin account back to sleep.

Regards. . .

So no Ftp server(s) or thinks like that just a simple left mouse and share.

The problem is:
if i share a folder and i make a file using user account A and i want to over write it using user account B the client reply s saying there is a pad error.
After same searching i found out that user B has no permission editing the file because its has only read permission on the file.
But i want user A and B to overwrite the file and user C to only read it o and user D to only motive it without “full control”.
The permissions on the folder are like that how do i say to my OS also put that rules on every file that i make on the machine.

The users is logged on to the computer using active directory only i don't know who to set it up in the way it needs to be is there a way to work around this problem.

I have never heard of a pad error? What is this is this a client using taskpad to write to a file? What application are you using to try and write to the share?

This is probably the origination of the above Pad error if the user is trying to save to the share that they do not have access to.

Hi,
I wanted to see if there was a permission that I could change (or some other workaround) to restrict an administrative account from being able to change the account type of other users on the same computer? Is there a permission I can set or some other workaround to make this possible? P.S. Can't use local group policy editor because I use Windows 7 Home Premium (x64)

A:Changing Administrative permissions

Trying to limit what another admin can do is an exercise in futility. Any and all attempts to do so will fail. By design all admins are equal. Any restriction you might impose another admin can reverse. Any permissions you set can be changed by another admin. All of this, and much more, is by design.

Any problems you are having with other admins you must work out by setting policies known to all concerned.

How do I fix this? (PS: Yes, I am Administrator)

A:Changing Folder Permissions ...

It all depends on where, what folder, you are trying to save file TO. Some folder are restricted by the OS as they are System folders and Users should not be saving things in them.

Until we know where you are trying to save to and what type of file you are saving it hard to proceed.

One thing you Do NOT want to do is take full control of the C drive. That will screw up the OS to no end.

Hi,

I work in an office with a small network (1 PDC/File Server, a proxy server, and about 20 workstations). All of my clients store their files on a drive on the server. The problem I'm experiencing is that for some unknown reason, permissions are changing on individual files. Basically, all of the files are set like this:

GROUP: Everyone
ACCESS: Full Control

Now, I've discovered that certain files have changed to:

GROUP: Administrators; System
ACCESS: Full Control

I have not changed any of these permissions myself, and none of the clients here have access to the server. It seems to only have affected Excel files so far. In some cases, I can simply change permissions back to normal, but sometimes, the files become corrupted and I have to restore from a backup.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

P.S- The server OS is WinNT Server 4.0, SP 6a

(Sorry if this is in the wrong area I cant find any area of this forums relating to user accounts).

So I changed my user account to the Windows 7 Super Admin account because I am easily annoyed when a computer tries to lock me out of areas :P I am completely okay with this and have no issues. However, many people keep telling me all about how this is a very bad thing to do, e.g. if I get a virus the virus has full control of my system. I dont disagree with this and I can understand it, I just find the benefits of super admin outweigh the risk considering I generally know what I am doing, how to avoid viruses, etc.

I have considered though swapping back to a regular admin account and enabling UAC, however there is so much data, programs installed, program preferences, etc stored on my user, last time I changed it was about a month before things were back to normal. Does anyone know how I could just change the permissions of my current account (the super admin account)?

I somehow doubt it is possible, considering this is the super admin account, if anyone instead knows of a good user migration tool that can transfer data from user to user that would also be great.

Thanks

A:Changing User Permissions

If you were to change the permissions which applied to your current account, you would effectively be changing the permissions for the system admin account. Anything executed or done as system admin would be within the confines of the set parameters, which may have an effect on certain applications, depending on how they are coded.

To draw comparison, its like having superuser and user in linux, and allowing su only to do what user can do, thus eliminating any possibility of using elevated permissions through su (su or sudo would still happen, superuser still exists, but permissions would be rejected)

It is slightly different with Windows 7, and it wouldn't be that drastic, but there are some processes I believe which rely on the system administrator account.

That being said, I'm not sure how you would go about stripping the Sytem Admin account of its power in the first place, or even if its possible.

I sounded much more helpful in my head than I actually was. Ah well :/

The other day, I moved some files+folders outside of a folder just to organize things. I tried to put them back inside and I kept getting the "Cannot move file, it's being used.." error. I was pretty sure I wasn't using any of the files so I checked the permissions to find that under the security tab, inside the "Group or user name" was completely empty without any user names. I fixed it by adding my user name.

This has happened before. A few months ago, I couldn't access any folders and files in this one particular folder without getting the "Acess denied" message. I found out that all my files and folders within that folder had no user names under the security tab which was a pain because I have over 100s of files in there and the only sure way to change the permission is to do them almost one by one.

I was wondering if there were any particular reason why it's doing this. I'm pretty sure that this computer is virus free and I almost never turn off the "Use simple file sharing" under the folder tool section. I've only played around with the permissions once over 5 months ago and I haven't touched it since.

Also, is there a way to change every permission within one folder so that I won't have to do them manually one by one?

Thank you for your time.

First of all, I apologize if this is a rather benign question. I've been doing research for a couple hours now, and haven't quite figured out how to fix this problem.

The problem being, I'm trying to transfer files from a hard drive enclosure (this one, to be exact) onto my Windows 7 64-bit computer. I only need a few specific files, and I figured I could just copy them from the hard drive directly onto my computer. When that didn't work, I did some more research and figured out that it was a matter of folder permissions.

This post perfectly sums up my problem. When I go to a file and change permissions manually, I'm able to copy the file onto my computer without any problems. If I don't change permissions but simply grant myself ownership, about a million error messages are thrown my way (the exact same problem as this post).

I followed the advice on the first post (the one about changing folder permissions) and, though it worked for that person, I keep getting the error message:

An error occurred while applying security information to:

G:\NAME OF FOLDER

Access is denied.

My options are "Continue" or "Cancel". The pop-up shows up for every single file within that folder.

Now, I could go to every file within a folder and change permissions manually, but that might take a small eternity since I'm seeking to transfer several hundred music files onto my computer. All I need to know is how to change folder permissions for every folder,... Read more

A:Changing Folder Permissions

Right click on the drive or folder to get "Properties"; ( In this case I right clicked on my G: drive )

I have a 64-bit Win7 VAIO. There are 2 user accounts in addition to the usual - mine (an administrator) and a generic user account with fewer privileges.
I noticed that the standard user account was still able to access folders that I didn't want it to, so I went about trying to revoke those permissions. I must have gone too far, though, and now I'm in a bind.
I changed permissions for Users, Everyone and the other user account to Deny full control on my C:\Users\<user>\ folder and its subfolders. Unfortunately, it seems that this also removed those permissions for me, as admin.
I tried resetting the permissions, but this does not seem to have worked. So, because I had a restore point from 2 days ago, I thought restoring would fix it, but it has not.
I'm having all sorts of problems because of this now. Most software will not open correctly (probably trying to access something in AppData), and I have no idea what steps to take now.

Ideas?

In order to change multiple permissions at once you must first obtain ownership of the directory that contains the files that you need to change
do this by:
-right-clicking the Drive (not the one that windows is installed on), folder, or file
-click Properties
-click the Security tab
-look towards the bottom right hand side and click Advanced
-click the Owner tab
-click Edit
-find your username under "Change owner to:"
NOTE: Make sure that the checkbox next to "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" is checked
-click Apply
-Then click OK until all property windows are closed.

Then to change permissions for all folders, subfolders, and files within the directory:
-Right-click the same directory, folder, or file
-click Properties
-click Advanced (next to "For special permissions or advanced settings click Advanced")
-click Change Permissions
-click Add...
-enter your username in the box (under "Enter the object names to select")
-click OK
NOTE: make sure that the checkbox is checked (next to "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object")
-click Apply
-Then click OK (to exit out of all property windows)

THEN YOUR DONE. All folders and/or files within the directory should have their permissions changed.

I've changed the permissions to give administrators full control of this key but it still throws me the same error.

Not quite sure how I did this, but I was moving some files around and somehow I removed the "owner" information. As a result, when I try to do anything (i.e. open, copy) to the file it says I don't have permission to access the file location, even though I have administrator privileges. If I right-click on a file, and select properties, I can reset the owner to myself under the security tab. With that change, I can then go back to the security tab and delete the "users" and "authenticated users" user names (leaving only my user name and the administrators). At this point, I can access the file as expected.

Unfortunately, this takes several steps and I have dozens, if not hundreds, of files to do this to. If I highlight multiple files, I can still right-click and select properties, but the security tab no longer appears. Is there a way to change the owner of multiple files using a single command? Is there a way to delete users using a single command?

If I have to use the console that's fine, I just need a more effective way to make these changes.
