I"m logged in as an Administrator on Windows 7. When I try khổng lồ delete a thư mục (which shows Security settings indicating that Administrators have FULL access) I get a message that :

You require permission from SYSTEM lớn make changes khổng lồ this file.

I don"t have sầu any other user accounts on this computer.

What"s up with this?


I figured it out:

The tệp tin is owned by SYSTEM (system service)

You have to lớn change the ownership via comm& line: takeown /f (this is from How To Geek which then recommends using the CACLS command but that"s been deprecated & it"s easier to lớn vày it via the Security interface)

Right clichồng the file và choose Properties> Security tab> choose Administrators (if you are one) then phối the Edit Permissions, setting it to lớn FULL.

It was my company"s anti-vi khuẩn software not allowing the download. It would tải về the file, then say:

You require permissions from DOMAINUSER to make changes lớn this file

Even though I am a tên miền admin. I disabled my anti-virus (in this case VIPRE) & it worked. Downloaded the file just fine. VIPRE thought FileZilla was a "known bad" in its application rating, và it was blocking the download.



In my case I was trying khổng lồ delete a thư mục from a network giới thiệu which was write-protected.

Because the PCs had similar names I didn"t realize that I was working on the remote folder instead of the local thư mục.

Solution: simply delete the correct (local) folder.
