Yes that is true, and if it is the case here, getting permission will be easy enough

right click, properties>security>ownership
I think that a bit more complete path would be Properties>Security Tab>Advanced button>Permissions tab>Change Permissions button>Add button>Advanced button>Find Now button>Select user>Press OK>Select Permissions>Press OK>Check Inheritable Permission...>Press OK, then OK and OK again.

I correct my prior statement; ownership was an inadvertent slip, agreed it should be users.

but I will acquiesce to your procedure.

From somewhere, somehow, a folder named "24cd9e4542d29590bce925ec30" has been created in my W7x86pro root dir. Trying to look inside, I had to "permanently get access". But then inside it, there are a whole lot of folders named things like 1025, 1028, 1029, etc, ending with 3076, and 3082. ...
