Access is denied hell! No suggestions have worked
I have a
hard diskon my home network (in a normal old style
work group, not
home group) that i only get "Access is denied" for when I try to access the folders in it.
I have tried to take ownership of it, but I only get access is denied.
Whatever I click on when it comes to
security tabsfor it it gives access denied if I try to change a setting.
I have downloaded the fix which is supposed to grant access denied by a right click, but of course it doesn't work.
I have tried to switch to be a net admin in the
cmdprompt, but the exact command line that is written in some forums just

And reading by the post in different forums I don't seem to be alone. There are numerous threads where the issue isn't resolved for many users, even if they try just about everything!

Thanks Doc Brown for posting all
screendumps, but these are just basic things.
I have finally got it to work (but not sure really why).
The permissions were set to everyone (for the shared hard drive) , exactly as it was for the other hard drives where it already worked.
I also added permissions for system and administrators (just for the hell of it) and now the hard drive on that computer started to go through all
sub-mapssetting the permissions.
Then it hit me that it hadn't done that before when I try to change the permissions.
Maybe it was the permissions for "system" that made it "wake up".
Now I could change the permissions on the other computer so that I could access that hard drive (and its
But everything still had to be done with UAC turned off, which is a shame.
Wasn't 7 supposed to be better at networking than previous versions of windows.
XP had the best of the lot I think.
