Windows 7: Denied external drive permission after factory reset

Currently changing all subdirectories within the drive to give access to current administrator, probably won't really know the results till after then. Although that's a job for tomorrow considering how long it's taking.

Code:
icacls /t /c E: /grant "Authenticated Users":(OI)(CI)(IO)(M)
icacls /t /c E: /grant Users:(RX)(OI)(CI)(IO)(GR,GE)
icacls /t /c E: /grant Administrators:(OI)(CI)(IO)(F)
icacls /t /c E: /grant SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)(IO)(F)
Make sure to run each of the above commands. They do not seem to have applied last time.

Each must be run followed by an Enter. The above contains four commands and four Enters.

Tried the above commands one by one each followed by enter. However it doesn't seem to have worked, still getting errors to do with privileges when trying to open word documents etc.

Strange that it is not recursively setting permissions like that... Post a screenshot of the results from
Code:
icacls E:\BUData

Would have posted the replies from the 4 commands but it would have been about 20 screenshots.

Thanks for all your time and help really appreciate it.

Alright, let's go at this differently.
Code:
icacls /t /c E: /grant "Authenticated Users":(OI)(CI)(IO)(M) > %userprofile%\Documents\AU.txt
icacls /t /c E: /grant Users:(RX)(OI)(CI)(IO)(GR,GE) > %userprofile%\Documents\U.txt
icacls /t /c E: /grant Administrators:(OI)(CI)(IO)(F) > %userprofile%\Documents\A.txt
icacls /t /c E: /grant SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)(IO)(F) > %userprofile%\Documents\S.txt
Post the .txt files in your next post.

Not sure that I did that correctly, tried entering them all one by and and as a group and got the same response.



As for posting the .txt files I'm not sure which ones you are referring to.

Ah, now I know what we are doing wrong... Grrr... I feel stupid. Should have run the commands myself to be sure.

Code:
icacls E: /t /c /grant "Authenticated Users":(OI)(CI)(IO)(M)
icacls E: /t /c /grant Users:(RX)(OI)(CI)(IO)(GR,GE)
icacls E: /t /c /grant Administrators:(OI)(CI)(IO)(F)
icacls E: /t /c /grant SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)(IO)(F)

My apologies. In the forum I help out in, we lost about 40% of our help in one night, so I have been stretched a bit thin of late. Guess you suffered for it, and I am very sorry for that.

Hey don't worry about that, you're taking your time to help me out I really appreciate that there's no rush.

Tried running the commands seperately and got the following

(Top left to bottom right is order for 1-4)

Also tried enetering the 4 at once and resulted in the same as the top left command prompt response.

Code:
icacls E: /t /c /grant "Authenticated Users":(M) 
icacls E: /t /c /grant Users:(RX) 
icacls E: /t /c /grant Administrators:(F) 
icacls E: /t /c /grant SYSTEM:(F)
Probably trying to do too many changes to permissions at once. Try the above instead.

I am not on my Windows system, so I cannot check at this time whether the (OI)(CI)(IO) commands can be set the way I wrote them previously.


EDIT: You may need to run these and go get a cup of coffee/get lunch/get dinner or do it before bed. It will take some time to apply permissions to all files.
