Windows 7: Authorization Issues

06 Jan 2010   #11


They are on the same partrition.

The path of the origin folder is:

C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft

and the destination is currently temporarily sitting in

C:\Users\Public\World of Warcraft
(not in games)

The exact error is that sometimes it begins copying the files, but it always gets to certain files (mostly extensions .MPQ and .html), where it tells me I need permission from myself to continue the action.

curious to see which directory is prompting this "error".... does it say which directory is having the issue with your file copy?

you can test by simply trying to copy the folder onto your desktop or eternal drive...

It is the destination which is causing the error.

Also, in properties, the origin is read only, but only because i lack the authorization to change it. As for permission and ownership, it's all me.

Scratch that, both folders report the error when trying to cop to another location.

How would I go about the inherit permission aspect of it'?

Wow Directory: Right click on the wow directory, select properties: from the properties / security tab, select Advanced. From the advanced window, down towards the bottom left hand side you might see a check box that says "inherit from parent ...."

uncheck, RESET full permissions to "EVERYONE" and "ADMINISTRATOR".

If these group(s) do not exist you'll need to "add" them

You can remove the "everyone" group after you have this fixed... but for now, don't lock yourself out.

I did as requested, but am still unable to move the folder contents. Still the same thing of asking myself for permission.
