Access Denied on Administrator

Hello!

Many times I have seen the "Access Denied" error while using an administrator account.
Especially in disk management utility when I tried to edit disk partitions but couldn't even with administrator privileges.

This is not a specific case - I just want to know how, even with administrator privileges, there are still restrictions (access, modify or change)

And what can I do to bypass those restrictions?

Thank you!

Some files/folders are owned by the system, or trusted installer for your own protection.

You should be able to edit them by taking ownership. check the tutorial section for how to
