Windows 7: permissions wtf?

permissions wtf?

Hello! I hope I'm not posting at the wrong thread! I have one hard drive, but I've divided them into two virtuals. I had xp and I installed win7 into one of my hard drives. How do I get permission over files to the other hard drive? I managed to get permission over folders, but not over files like doc. and so on. Any suggestions?

First post guys, so go easy on me :P

Thanx in advance!

Right Click on the drive - security - advanced - take ownership

Then use the advanced dialogue to add full control to the drive to your actual user name - make sure the option to cascade permissions to lower level is selected.

Note   Note
on systems that have been in use for some time under a number of operating systems some sub branches may not cascade correctly, and will have to be edited individually

If you right click on the actual file you should be able to adjust the permissions for that - you may have to take ownership and remove the existing permissions before adding the correct ones

If you do this make sure that the administrators group is included as this will prevent any potential future issues.

Ok, I have put myself in a real mess here. I changed all the default permissions on the "Users" folder, I made my account Owner. I did all this because HomeGroup wasn't working, so I thought I would try sharing via permissions. Is there a way to get the default permissions back for the Users...
