I have a network hard drive mapped as Z: which I have become unable to do ANYTHING with. I can't delete anything, change anything, or add anything to the drive. I just get that blasted "Destination folder access denied. You need permission to perform this action."
The internet has provided me with a plethora of solutions to this issue, and none of them have worked.
I'm logged on as administrator.
User Account Control is totally off.
Windows 7 will allow me to neither change permissions nor ownership of Z: or any folder or file within Z:.
I try giving Full Control to Everyone and it says "An error occurred while applying security information to (file name). Access is denied."
I go into Advanced and click the Owner tab. It states the current owner of everything on Z: is "nobody," and if I try to change the owner, it says "Unable to set new owner on Z:. Access is denied."
I've tried going into command prompt and changing ownership using "takeown /f Z:" and I just get "Z: Access is denied."
I've run out of ideas. Please help.
