Windows 7: Strange user accounts i dont reconize?

01 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 10 Pro x64 x2 Windows 10 Enterprise x64, Ubuntu

I've still not completely worked out why the padlock appears, the best I can suggest is that the folder contains mixed permissions with at least one user having some kind of deny permission set or less permissions than standard. another cause appears to be sharing with limited access granted

Unless the lack of permissions actually apply to your user or a group that you belong to then it does not effect the access to the folder.

If anyone could point to a definitive explanation I would be grateful
