I recently reinstalled XP Pro on my server at work after a hardrive tanked and ever since I've been having permissions problems.
I use the term "server loosely, we use this particular machine for data recovery, ghosting client drives, virus scans etc etc.
Before I reinstalled permissions problems were fairly easily solved. Normally I could right click whatever folder I was not permitted to view remove other owners, addmyself as the owner, applyto all child objects. That generally worked, there were always a few problems with it, a handful of files would not change permission or I would have to do it more than once but it got the job done.
Now when I am not permitted to view a folder I don't have any control over the permissions. If I right click the drive there is no option to override permissions. I would like to stop typing the word permission now.
This is happening with images of drives made using Norton Ghost.
Any advice with this would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you need more information.
