  1. Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 I tried to restore to a previously 'created restore point' but it failed (System restore error 0x80070091). Because I had an Audio Driver issue. Meantime I fixed my audio card driver problem (reinstall)... But immediately two irrelevant things are screwed up now: My dedicated 6TB backup drive won't let anything to be written to or deleted from it for no good reason! It started to show: "The Recycle Bin on Y:\ is corrupted" error "Do you want to empty the Recycle Bin for this Drive?" I click YES! But of course, the system won't let me due to problem No1. "You need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder." This drive is a 6 TB data drive and has been serving with no issues about a year now. And the drive shows no indication of errors or any weaknesses. S.M.A.R.T. stats are all green. My other system has no such problems with it. What I have tried so far: sfc /scannow: No Problems I did the change the owner to 'Everyone' and included the sub-folders. It scanned the whole drive and seemed like it completed the task without any errors. I activated the built-in admin account. takeown /F Y:\ /R It took, of course, forever to scan the drive. Results of that scan: Mostly: "SUCCESS" (including a bunch of Recycle stuff) Few: "The system cannot find the path specified." And This"You do not have permissions to read the contents of directory blah..." "Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you full control? "YES" Scanned twice as much more: "Success in all entries" Yet nothing has changed! I still don't have any permission for that Drive but reading permission... Why now?! Why after trying (and failing) to Restore the system? The second OS that I am building as a workstation has no such problem. I deactivated U.A.C. in that one. The one with the problem is the one with U.A.C. Any expertise help will be cherished...
  2. Hello! So, i'm having a laboration in my Computer Basics class right now and I have some MAJOR problems with the permissions for this. I could use some help ASAP! I have already failed once with this and I'm having a go at it tomorrow again, so any help would be appreciated. So this is what I have to do: "All files created in this directory should only be accessible by the user who created the file, and no one else. A user who creates a file must get full permissions for that file, but no other users should be able to even read it. For directories, only the user who created it should have access to it. All other users should be denied to even list the contents of that directory. Hint: Use the Creator/Owner placeholder" There is also another problem with this one. Because I have given a certain group (all personnel) FULL CONTROL over the whole directory, but the users (except for one) can't see the directory at all. I have now removed the directory and created it again in an attempt to start from the beginning. Any help would be neccessary and I'd appreciate any answers at all. Thank you for your time! Kind regards Karl Edenstål
