Cannot access file due to access permissions
Hi, I was just meddling with the access permissions (Propertise ->
Security)of a folder that I have and I must have done something wrong because
now whenever I try to do anything with the folder or the files within, I get
the message :

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have
the appropriate permissions to access the item."

I've tried to restore the permissions but I keep getting error messages that
says I do not have the permissions to do so.

I would really appreciate any help.

Re: Cannot access file due to access permissions
Hello,

in the security tab, who has now reading/writing permissions?
Try taking over the owner rights: In tab "Security" -> Advanced -> tab
"Owner" -> Edit... -> click your Username, and check "Replace owner on
subcontainers and objects", click Apply. Then, try giving yourself the right
permissions again.

Greetings,
P. Di Stolfo
