Security Settings

I can make a folder so that it is blocked to a certain user. When I logged on as that user to test the security settings (It's just a dummy account), I received a message saying that the folder was not accessible. Good. However, when I right-clicked on the folder name an attempted to change the security settings (while still logged in as the "blocked user") I got a message box saying I was unable to change security settings, but I could take ownership. So, I took ownership, and that gave me access to the folder. When I went back to my account, and checked the settings for the folder, it specifically says that permission to change ownership is denied to that user. What's going on?

do you have that user set up as having administration rights? if so they can take ownership


Do you mean are they set as an administrator in the "user accounts" settings? Yes they are. I'll test it out with a limited account. Thanks!


Always remember that administrator accounts have full access to everything.

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

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!
