Windows 10: Change file/folder permission to machine/user only

    Change file/folder permission to machine/user only


    Is there a way to make take ownership change file/folder permission to machine/user while getting rid of old and or corrupted information?

    Just something that came to mind when I was fooling with format/reinstalling windose again. I dunno if its something to be aware of or not but knowing windose it might be a bad thing if it gets to cluttered with iffy info.

    And is there a way to change system file/folder permission's to the new install? Sometimes something goes wonky and I have nothing but problems from folders deep within programdata/windows/appdata not wanting to allow an installer to put stuff in there.

    I can already do that , my question is more dose it matter how many user permissions are on a file/folder? I have been using the take ownership thing for years and some of my archives I worry if they are okay with all that old info on them.
