Windows 7: No permissions on shared network drive folder

No permissions on shared network drive folder

Hi,
Very long story short, I am the new IT Engineer at a small business and I had the task to delete a shared network drive folder. Sounds easy right. Well, some of the sub folders don't have permissions on and I get the "The requested security information is either unavailable or can't be displayed" message in the security tab of the folders. I have tried the following:
  • Taken ownership and applied Admin, my own user ID and Authenticated users permissions on the parent folder and applied the "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object"
  • 3rd party take ownership programs on the subfolders
  • Rename/delete the sub folders via cmd
Anything I try can't seem to grant me permission of ownership of the sub folders. Unfortunately I don't know what was done to these sub folders as the old engineer must have done this. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Is this on a domain? Is it a server or PC do you have full control of the folder or is it system? Did you remove share properties

Hi and thanks. As soon as I read the word server in your post I realised that I didn't try my solutions on the file server itself, only another sever.

I just logged into the file server and I can now take ownership and delete the folders. Thanks very much!
