I have Windows7 Home edition on my home pc. I am the administrator of the machine. I recently changed my own password from control panel and changed permissions for another user. Since then I am getting access denied on some of the files I had created myself in a folder named C:\data. The file (dbmaintain.dll created by me using Visual Stidio 2008 C++) shows that my userid has Full Control and also that I have ownership of the object. Yet I cannot make a copy of this file from command prompt or windows explorer running in administrative mode. There are serveral other files in the same folder which have the same problem.

What is your question? How to change ownership, other ways to copy files? Why different folders have different permissions? – Dave Oct 1 '12 at 8:00
