    "Deny full control" on a folder, how to get access again ?


    Hi,

    For a folder, on properties, security tab, I've set "Deny full control" for every user.

    Now I cannot do anything with this folder. It's the "Bonjour" folder with the Apple app.

    How can I get access again, and delete this app and folder ?

    The deny option is best avoided whenever possible. It has implications that are often missed. Deny overides all other permissions. You might have full control over a folder but if you are a member of a group, and everyone includes everyone, that is denied acess you have no access. But again, it is best avoided.
