    Having the same problem - tried everything I can find


    I have a drive attached to the router and I can't delete a folder or files within the folder - I get the usual "Failed to enumerate objects in the container. Access is denied"
    I have tried countless solutions without success, in fact I've just had a message saying that I can't open the Photo App "with the built in Administrator - sign in with a different account." Only I don't have another user / account! One step backwards!
    As far as I can see whenever I look at Permissions (using Advanced etc) there is a big list of "objects" but my user name isn't one of them!
    How the heck can that be - and how can I fix it?
    I'd really appreciate any help.

    Some additional problem


    I also have the problem of being told I need admin privileges when I am the sole user and can see admin privileges in my user profile.

    One thing I found that may add to the puzzle. I have a new windows 10 machine and my wife has a laptop with windows 10 updated from windows 8.1. We both share a Seagate Backup Plus hard drive that we use to make occasional backups for four different computers.

    We recently decided to delete some of the backups for old machines from that drive by plugging the drive into her laptop and using shift-delete to remove the folders and sub-folders. This worked for everything except a string of folders and subfolders that ultimately contained an auto.inf file which we could not delete on her machine. When I instead tried the same thing on my machine it deleted with no problem.

    Since posters here have commented that they solved this privilege problem by a clean install, this seems to indicate the problem is somehow tied to windows 10 installations that were updates from a previous version.

    Not sure if this helps anyone but the data point might be useful

    Repeat with all of the problematic folders.
    For some reason this isn't working for me. I did a fresh install of Windows 10 on my new computer and copied over the other partitions from one computer to another. When working in Dreamweaver I noticed it was giving me issues, as in not uploading the files I changed. It would show the new upload date, however when I checked it with FTP it showed the previous version. Probably this is caused by not having rights to modify and upload the file within Dreamweaver.

    Also other applications and programs give me the same or similar issues.

    I followed the steps as mentioned above, but I get an error after step 8. The screenshot is in Dutch, but I still hope someone can provide some help on how to fix this...

    It's annoying that I cannot do the things I want on my own PC within Windows 10...
    FYI: My old PC also had Windows 10 installed.

    //edit

    Small update. I just clicked continue and it seems to have made the changes. However the same issue with (for example Dreamweaver still exists.

    To clarify things; I took two screenshots. One is from Dreamweaver where it shows/says the modified file has been uploaded to the server (you can tell by the time). However looking at the same file through FlashFXP it shows nothing was uploaded and the old (previous) file is still there as in unmodified?!

    Are you on the first version released in July or the November Update, if you're on the first build try updating to the November update with the media creation tool, download it here:

    go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691209

    Choose Upgrade this PC now and you can install the November Update as if you were performing an in place upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10. If that doesn't work or you don't want the November Update the only other solution I do have that can possibly work is download the Take Ownership registry hack from here,

    http://www.howtogeek.com/wp-content/...eOwnership.zip

    Then go to C:\Users or whatever drive letter of the partition you installed it on is and right click on your User account fold and click Take Ownership, that will open a command prompt window and it will start giving you ownership. You might be prompted by User Account Control first. After it closes, restart your computer and try saving something again and see if that fixes it.

    Nevermind. Was a mistake on my side. Apparently there was an update in Dreamweaver which now *NEEDS* the home directory entered. Sigh... Sorry for this mistake.

    Sorry to be a bother, but I tried doing all of this. Everything was successful until I went to save the changes... Then a pop-up window came up telling me that my access was denied and I could not change the ownership of *any* of the files or folders I select, including folders that I created myself. I am the sole user of the computer, and am listed as the only administrator. A lot of the files that are on my computer tell me that I need a "trustedInstaller" 's permission to delete it, or something along those lines. PLEASE HELP! I'm running out of ideas (and storage) on my computer. Thanks so much.

    HowTo change Administrator Permission in Windows 10 .
    FirstOption;



    • Right click on troublesome ‘file’
    • Left click on ‘properties’
    • Select ‘Security’
    • Click ‘Advanced’
    • Click ‘Owner’ ‘Change’
    • You will find three things -
    • A - Object type e.g. User
    • B - Location i.e. the name you (user) gave Microsoft as the name of your computer when you first got it to work e.g. ‘sillytwot3’
    • C – Enter Object Name – which is the real bitch in the machine. They need the name of the administrator you gave them originally. If you cannot remember this or come up with the right name click on ‘Change Names’ & if you cannot find it in that list just clear all from the box. Click the ‘Advanced’ area below, click the find now in common queries & keep going until you find YOUR original administrator name.
    • When you have found it enter it as the new owner location & click ‘OK’
    • Click ‘apply’ and if it does not apply it again now of the 4 options at the top select ‘SHARE’
    • In the ‘share’ area click to highlight the administrator user that you have previously organised& click ‘OK’
    • Click ‘OK’ again
    • If you have got the idea correct the file should now be yours to command. Unfortunately I find this only works on one file at a time & as such is still a pain in the arse, but at least it does work.



    SecondOption;



    • Sometimes you will get a window from properties with
    • ‘Group or user names list’
    • If your user name is not on this list
    • Click Edit & if it is still to highlight
    • Click add & enter you admin or user name
    • click to enter
    • click to allow full control
    • click your user name to highlight
    • click apply
    • click OK
    • click to highlight again
    • click OK again
    • with luck the file is yours.

    Hi Guys,

    I have this annoyance which I cannot solve by myself so please bear with me while sugesting some solutions

    Asking this because not quite sure which is the affected folder or how it's affected as a matter of fact.

    It’s about a win 10 I just installed yesterday (in dual boot with win 7 32 bit, on some other partition).

    This fresh installed windows 10 (not upgraded) is not allowing me as an admin user (single user of the PC) to add new files (through copy or move, or delete) on any of the folders that win 10 has created on C drive, without a prompt for admin “you'll need to provide administrator permission to…” copy/move/delete etc, although in advance security tab I can see full rights granted for administrators.

    Outside those folders on C that windows originated during installation (or on any other drives), isuue is not present.

    I posted a crapy 3 min video on Youtube, as the audio serves better for explanatory of this issue.

    Thanks!
