I have XP Pro and was kind of messing around with folder sharing settings and trying to learn. Well, I ended up setting “Users (SYS1\Users” to “Deny Read and Execute \ List Folder Contents \ Read”. It was my downloaded files folder and I do have them on backup but I was wondering is there a way to gain access to these files and folders again or delete it all without formatting?

-thx

did you try going into safe mode and going in as admin ??

If that's not the case already, log in as Administrator and take ownership of the folder, then reasign desired rights to all users; that's what I would do...

I've been looking on Microsoft's web site and found a interesting section on it. There is no way to access that folder again or get it back for that matter even with my Admin account because anything in the Users group is blocked and the admin is in there. I already formatted the hard drive. So all is good... Just alittle stressed. :yowch:

Shame.
Regardless of permissions, the owner of a file or folder will have the ability to change the permissions that are set on it.

And an admin, or a member of the local administrators group can take ownership of a folder.

If I had two networked computers I would be able to get them back but I do not.

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
