I just migrated data from my old WinXP computer to my new Windows 7 computer. I noticed that I cannot open the migrated folder c:\documents and settings\user\my documents\ - access is denied.
I changed permissions to allow administrators Full Control of this folder, and the user read/write access. I also took ownership of the folder as an Administrator. However, there is a "Deny" permission which prohibits Everyone from Listing the folder/Reading data. "Deny" permissions override "Allow" permissions, so I can't open the folder even as an Admin with Full Control + Ownership. I tried to remove the "Deny" permission, but it said I was not authorized to do so and told me to try taking Ownership to get authorization. I already have Ownership, so I'm stuck here.
Does anyone know how to remove the "Deny" permission?
