    Application Data permissions


    I was trying to look at C:\ProgramData\Application Data but got an "access is denied" exception. So I right-clicked and opened Application Data Properties/Security and tried to change the Administrator permissions, but after I checked the box for full permissions and then clicked "Apply" several other exception dialogs popped up and then the entire entry for Administrators (under Group or user names) was deleted.

    Can I fix this? Does it matter? ( So far, I haven't noticed anything not working correctly.)

    C:\ProgramData is a hidden system folder. It is hidden because there is a good reason, that the user does not alter it. Better you keep it as it is, hidden.

    Hide that place, use the computer normally. IMHO the permission thing will not affect anything. But if it causes any issue, drop a post.
