XP My Documents permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • My account is a member of the local admins group. I'm transfering data before OS upgrade. Having problems copying files within other user's profiles especially My Documents folders. The owner is set to Admin. I added my account with Full Access. I can access My Documents but no subfolders even after selecting Replace permissions on child objects. I remember having similar issues when moving domain profiles. Why don't the permissions propagate to subfolders and what's the way to do it so it actually works?

  • Nice one. Looks like no one knows enough about ntfs permissions...
