As above really

Went to view pictures on my hard drive and it says 'You don't currently have permission to access this folder'. 'Click continue to permanently get access to this folder'

Of which I click, then I get 'You have been denied permission to access to this folder'. 'To gain access to this folder you will need to use the security tab'.

I then click security tab link and get 'You must have read permissions to view the properties of this object'. 'Click Advanced to continue'

I then get 'Unable to display current owner'. 'You must have read permissions to view the properties of this object'. 'Click continue to attempt the operation with administrative permissions'

I then get 'Unable to display current owner' ' You do not have permission to view this objects security properties, even as an administrative user' 'To try taking ownership of the object, which includes permission to view its properties, click change above'

I then get a box asking for the object name

WTF is this all about?

I an the administrator on my PC, I have gone through and made sure permissions are set for me to read and access everything (obviously I still can't) so what am I missing?

This is not on my main drive, but my 3TB hard drive in my PC.

I can access every and all other files on this drive, but nothing in the 'Pictures' folder I created ages ago.

BG, or Flash 22, are you about? HELP :(

Are you accessing the pictures 'directly' as opposed to via a folder created in 'my documents' ?? or 'shared documents' ??

Directly, I think.

The drive has a folder on it, I created, called pictures, I then click on any of the files in there and this is what happens.

HTF do I get to 'own' the objects, if indeed i actually need to?

Is this a Linux system you're referring to?

This might be worth a try Dave but I am not too clever with this myself :lol: . If you right click on the file you get list of options, click properties and have a look in there first as it has tabs like security and the like. Also right clicking you can change what he PC will use to open the file which might help as it might be directing the file to software you do not have.

Worth a try :thumbright:

Tried clicking all the options in those menu's until my fingers bled! ::b :lol:

It won't do anything until it thinks I 'own' something or other

Must add DWD, I am really impressed.

How on earth did you manage to find that?

Obviously most answers to things are on the web, but he skill is knowing how and where to look.

I was having a look on a Windows 10 site and found it more by luck than judgement :lol: I am glad it sorted it out Dave, it makes a change from me asking you questions :lol:

If you do not open the folder and do a right click on that will that help undo all the file contents in one go???

Unfortunately not. I tried that and other combinations all to no avail.

I still do not know why I lost ownership in the first place.

Did think of deleting them all then downloading them from Amazon cloud back up, do not want to risk whether I have been good with my backing up!
