So, you’re on a network (with permission, of course) and suddenly you find you can no longer access a certain file or folder….what to do? Try this little trick:

To adjust, set or regain file/access permissions:Folder Permissions:

When permissions are lost on a file or folder, Administrator (or yourself) must take ownership of it to recover/adjust to the proper permissions.

Right click on the file in question and select Security.When prompted with a warning that “you only have rights to view”, click ok.

Click on the Advanced Tab.

Click on the Ownership Tab

To change ownership, select Administrator (or your username) and click OK.

Click OK again to close the window.


Right-click on that file again and adjust the rights to what they should be.
Ahhh…with any luck on your end, access is yours.
