Hey all

I am trying to move/rename/delete a folder with contents but I can't do nothing with it.

Tried changing permissions on it, to no avail.

What else can I do?

Thanks,

Heeter

Did you try taking ownership of the folder?

If the folder isn't inheriting permissions it won't cre what permissions you set on the parent folder.

What OS you running?

Folder is sitting on a network drive.

The workstation OS is Vista. The FileServer is Win2003.

I remote desktop the server and tried from there as well, with no success.

How do I take ownership of folder?

Hi Tweakfiend, that helped. On a network folder too.

Thanks,

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
