Documens& Settings dir

  baldyx 21:32 25 Dec 2007

When I try to access the directory :
'c:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\Documents'

it is not accessible. Also a third party software tried to acess this directory, same error occured.i.e. accesss denied.

Any suggestions to fix this problem please.

You will need to be an Administrator to access these folders.

The administrator account is visable if you boot into safe mode (tap F8 while booting and select safe mode from the list)

Actually, limited accounts do have access to the Shared Documents folder.

baldyx - It seems that your Access Control List has been corrupted. I am reticent to post the most likely fix, given the title of this forum, but here you go anyway: click here

thanks all. I have tried what Fruit Bat has suggested and worked o,k.

Well, yes, but it's just a workaround. If you want limited accounts to access Shared Documents locally, as they can and should be able to do, then the ACL - if corrupted - needs to be checked and fixed.
