I have a small... problem atm. that could get bigger if I go further whitout knowing what I'm doing.
So this happened:
I have a Windows Server 2012 R2
It has 2 drives. C: & D:
I wanted to give the usergroup Users more permission to change files in a specific folder.
I recognized the user was in the Administrators group and actually should be able to change files in folder XY. Now after I granted rights to the Users-Group... he suddenly could change files there. All fine untill here.
My thought was:
may the admin-rights has to be refreshed so other users in the admin group won't run into the same problem
. What I did is:
D: => Right Click => Properties => Security
Selected Administrators => Edit and took away the first checkbox. After exapting this, I dropped my hand on my head and realized that my rights are gone. And now I'm not able to grand them anymore for this folder or directory.
I thoughts where:
may you just change the owner
But since I already have made this mistake I'm afraid to do the next one because inetpub and ftproot is running under D: and I don't know what will happen with the IIS and its rights when I change that.
Any suggestion to solve this ? Or to get the rights back for this folder ?
As information: I was logged in as administrator and took the right from the folder of the adminsitratorsgroup. But I still have access!
EDIT: This is not a duplicate of Access denied to a folder after removing administrator permission. I DO have access to the folder! I only want all rights back. Thats some diffrent!!!! Also the posted possible duplicate doesnt even has a really answere! Specialy not suitable with my question.
