Windows 7: TakeOwnershipEx

24 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

TakeOwnershipEx 1.2

TakeOwnernshipEx is NTFS rights management utiliy. It allows you:
1. To take ownership on file or folder to get full access to them.
2. To restore default rights and owner on files/folders you previously owned.

When you execute "Take ownership" command, applications reads file's NTFS permission and backup them. Then it set local "Administrators" group as owner and give them full access. "Restore ownership" command restores rights from backup. It restores access right as well as owner. I.e. if previous owner was TrustedInstaller, it will be properly restored too. This is a most important benefit of TakeOwnershipEx.

Russian and English UI languages are available. The application supports Windows 8, 7 and Windows Vista

Also it has context menu integration. Sisnce 1.2 TakeOwnershipEx has "clever" context menu item which can detect what it must do - to provide full access or restore permissions and owner of file. See the following video:


I have special version for Windows 8 compiled with .net framework 4.5.
