Resetting file permissions
One of the worst things about NTFS as far as I am concerned is forcing permissions on removable media, when those permissions can so easily be overridden. Here is how to reset the permissions on removable media from windows 7.
- start up cmd as administrator
- takeown /f d:\path /r
- icacls d:\path /reset /T
d:\path is the drive and path to the file or directory you want to reset.
