Ah - that sounds a lot better

Good luck with it! Keep an eye on it until after next month's updates and see what it does without kicking it...

Hi Sarah,

I have been in contact with niemiro (the developer of SFCFix) and we did in fact run into a bug with the RestorePermissions process which has since been fixed. Could you delete your copy of SFCFix.exe as it is now outdated and follow these instructions:

SFCFix Script

Warning: this fix is specific to the user in this thread. No one else should follow these instructions as it may cause more harm than good. If you are after assistance, please start a thread of your own.

  1. Download SFCFix.exe (by niemiro) and save this to your Desktop
  2. Download the attached file, SFCFix.txt, and save this to your Desktop. Ensure that this file is named SFCFix.txt - do not rename it
  3. Save any open documents and close all open windows
  4. On your Desktop, you should see two files: SFCFix.exe and SFCFix.txt
  5. Drag the file SFCFix.txt onto the file SFCFix.exe and release it
  6. SFCFix will now process the script
  7. Upon completion, a file should be created on your Desktop: SFC.txt.
  8. Copy (Ctrl + C) and Paste (Ctrl + V) the contents of this file into your next post for me to analyse please - put [CODE][/CODE] tags around the log to break up the text
