I am currently at a point of frustration with Microsoft that I am about to explode!
I recently copied the entire contents of a thumbdrive to my desktop for safe keeping while I was using the drive for something else. I later (about 10 or 20 minutes later) copied the contents back over to the drive. Everything worked except for one file which Windows has apparently taken control of and now says that I require permission from myself to do anything with it. I tried disabling UAC which did absolutely nothing to correct the issue. According to Windows, I do not have permission to view, run, rename, copy, or delete the file. I also do not have permission to view or edit it's properties and when I try to take ownership of the file it tells me "Access Denied!".
I am the only user of this computer and have full administrative rights. This file contains EXTREMELY important data and Microsoft has no right whatsoever to tell me what I can and can't do with my own files. Somebody PLEASE tell me of any way that I can fix this. This is utterly ridiculous.
P.S. Already tried using the built-in Admin account with all the same issues.
