Accessing a shared folder

By adjordan ·
Background info:
Running NT 4.0 Sp 6a - Server crashed - had to reinstall.
Lost all user accounts
We had one folder for which only one particular user had access (Administrator did not have access)
When we reinstalled NT, we can not access or share the folder - given access denied message from NT.
Question?
How can we reset the user priviledges to gain access to this folder? (Just happens to be our accounting folder)

Any ideas are welcome.

Accessing a shared folder

YOu can try to take ownership of that folder, you have to include adding the subfolder as well.

If the above method can't solve your problem, what you can do is copy the dir to a fat32 partition, then copy back to a NTFS partition. All the NTFS permission will be gone. Do have a try

Cheers!

You can't copy the directory anywhere since you don't have read rights. What you can do is log in as a local administrator and take ownership of the directory. You can always do that. Afterwards, you can reassign the proper permissions.

I agree with the Answer #2, just login locally take ownership as administrator, then login again on the domain and reasign shares access to that folder. Make sure you assign share access to subfolders as well.

Good luck,
@lberto
