I am trying to move a file from a usb stick to a folder on my desktop.
I have changed the various properties on it and its subfolder items and taken ownership of it. I have added full permissions to do everything on it and its subfolders and items.
When I try to move the folder, windows 7 gives me the error message:
You need permission to perform this action You require permission from XXX\YYY to make changes to this file
(Try again / Skip / Cancel) Do this for all current items (x amount found)
The thing is, I am actually logged in as user XXX\YYY, and so getting this message does not make sense. Even when I hit try again, it doesnt work.
What is going on here and how can I first of all change the permissions so I can move the stuff.
Second, I am the only person using this computer (its my laptop and I live alone (poor me)). These permissions are really annoying. Is there any way I can disable this level of security on my system for good so I can just take ownership of the files once they get on to my system and then do what I want with them. Where are the days of good old dos.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
