    Permissions deleted

    Hello,
    Yesterday, I went to open a folder on our network and was denied access. Thought that was unusual since I have administrator rights. If I right-click on the folder and look at the security tab, there are no users listed, not even administrator. Someone has erased them all. Now I can't get to the folder to even add the administrator back. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this ????

    Thanks !

    Have you tried taking ownership of the folder (right click then Properties | Security | Advanced | Owner)? Are you accessing it directly on the server as opposed to from a workstation?

    Occasionally a reboot 'fixes' permissions problems on servers...

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    Wow....thanks for the quick reply...that's why I like this board.

    That did the trick. It was showing me a message about taking ownership but I didn't know how to get there.

    Thanks again Joe !
