    Take ownership(my permission hell)

    I've been using take ownership since maybe my win7 days even vista but M$ has done something to the process as take ownership no longer applies to everything in a folder. It's been hell trying to restore my older profiles every time I am forced to reinstall the OS(10th time this year so far). But this go around it's not cutting it its not working on all files. I've tried using security to reset admin and system permissions on a folder(my profile folder but been focusing more on appdata).

    Anyway right now random folders/files seemed locked and somethings do not want to work half of them I am forced to delete the file. Its not a read only issue at least that's as much as I have figured out.

    Can you force set admin/system permissions onto the profile folder and suppress and log errors? Windows security stops on each error which is getting ridiculous.....

    I wonder if I could dup my profile set permissions then copy it back over everything, at least the not non system locked stuff will be fixed maybe I dunno anymore win10 is killing me softly.... at least I have figured out how to fix edge and windows store now... start menu issues seem to be more randy... I swear with all the errors and issues its almost alive! LOL

    Try TakeOwnershipEx, it takes ownership and also grants you full access. Very easy.
