Windows 7: No way to fix this???

so I think the command prompt line would be for example drive f:


CACLS F: /e /p Everyone:F

this would be f drive, User is Everyone and permission is F (Full Control)

Yeah I really messed up ...
I did not know an admin user could prevent everyone from accessing a disk. Too bad there is nothing "Admin only", because for my partition Admins still have rights, but Users don't, and since a deny takes precedence over an Allow, no one can access the disk anymore.

Deleting the partition and re-creating it would fix the problem?

Try what thorsen said first, then yes it should solve the problem as far as I know. I'll do a bit of research first to make sure for you.

Petey, Ha beat you to it.... lol.... you can also put ubuntu on a Flash Drive: UNetbootin - Homepage and Downloads

Edit: this makes a bootable Flash Drive so you can run Ubuntu without installing. But I think a down-side to this is that some comps don't allow booting from USB devices so it might not work in some comps. All computers can boot from CD so thats always safe. I also have Ubuntu on CD for emergency purposes (and for installs - Ubuntu is fun)

The link I provided earlier also said how, but that is a lot more detailed. Good find.

As far as I can tell you only denied access to users within Windows so you should be able to move files from it with linux.

The command line method does not work... access denied
Go for the Linux option then!

Within Ubuntu, you can try changing the permissions as well. The command is chmod here is a good resource for that.

Chmod syntax


Edit: sorry to hear about cprompt. I was hoping that would work. You could also try from within windows and do the cmd but Run as Admin I was thinking from startup so you aren't actually in the system. but Try from in Windows too.

If you can change the permissions from within linux that would be great. I hope everything works out for you in the end.
