I have a dual-boot configuration: Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 8 Consumer Preview. I need to create a similar setup on both OSes, so that I do my work, testing, benchmarks and everything else on both operating systems.
Therefore, I want to have the same setup when it comes to my libraries/user folders: Documents, Music, Pictures and Video. I have a 1to1 relationship between libraries and user folders. For example: the Documents library points to the Documents folder and nothing else.
I want both the admin account on Windows 7 and the admin account on Windows 8 to access them with full permissions.
What I have done so far was to:
- modify the permissions in Windows 7 and make sure my user account has full permissions;
- login to Windows 8 and give full permissions to admin user account used on that OS.
The trouble is: each time I login to Windows 7, it seems to forget that my user account has full permissions. Then, I need to take ownership of each folder, in order to use it.
When I log back to Windows 8, it never has issues remembering permissions and I can access these folders without trouble. However, when I go back to Windows 7, I have the same troubles again and need to take manual ownership of these folders.
How should I setup the permissions so that I have access to these folders from both OSes and admin accounts?
Do I have to change some security policy in Windows? If yes, which? I can't find one relevant to my problem.
Update: I have noticed that this problem is fixed in Windows 8 Release Preview. Apparently, it was a bug relevant for Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
