On a Windows Server 2012 R2 machine, logged in as domain administrator trying to access the c:\users\public\desktop folder, getting access denied. This machine is the domain controller.
How can I get access to this folder?
- Using takeown from cmd.exe using runas as the local domain administrator:
C:\Users\Public>takeown /f c:\users\public\desktop ERROR: Access is denied.
- Tried icacls
C:\Users\Public>icacls Desktop /t /grant Everyone:F Desktop: Access is denied. Successfully processed 0 files; Failed processing 1 files
- Viewing it via explorer when logged in as domain administrator
