    Thx, Tried systemrecovery without result. I probably wil have to resort to a reinstall I suppose?
    If you have no restore point that will put you back, and no system image backup to restore, you're options are very limited. Appdata contains, as you have discovered, not only your data, but 3rd party data, and most importantly, a good chunk of Windows System data. All intertwined. You could spend days trying to unravel it and not be sure, or clean install and get it over with. Hard bullet to bite, but............

    And start a backup regimen to save yourself in the future.

    Most here on TF would recommend Macrium (free). Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free

    Add Reset Permissions to Context Menu in Windows 10 to reset AppData Folder permissions.
    Thx, already tried that, there is a distinct difference between ownership and permissions. My problem lies with the ownership.

    @Callender I dont think it's the permissions that are the problem, I already ran a script to reset those. It's the ownership. I'll try to include a screenshot.
    I'm pretty sure that program restores ownership. I used it after taking ownership off appdata. Your screenshot shows some other folder.

    It wouldn't hurt to run it anyway.

    Just a note to say that you're not supposed to get access to:
    C:Users\username\Application Data

    But you can get access to:

    C:Users\username\AppData

    If JunctionBox didn't fix things have a read here but it's a little above my head.
