Corrupt/Locked Out ACLs


Y

Yoann Roman

I have a file that I can't seem to reset the permissions on. As
Administrator, I can't read, copy, delete, view permissions, or do anything
to it. Everything returns "Access Denied".

As the local Admin, I've tried taking ownership via the UI; no luck.

I've tried the takeown and subinacl tools, both under the local admin (using
runas) and the domain admin (interactive); no luck.

I've tried the W2K03 versions of the xcacls and takeown tools from an XP
machine under the domain admin (using runas); no luck.

Any ideas?

I was banging my head over a similar problem once, then it dawned on me
that it might not be ACL based and could have been exclusively opened. It
was :)
