I have a weird problem going on here.
I have a few folders, all of which happen to be video folders I use in Plex media server.
I can rename the folders, but I can't copy files into or out of the folders. I can access the files in the folders, but not do anything else to them.
If I go to advanced security options, the "Everyone" group only has Read & Execute permissions. The only other permissions have changed to a SID "S-1-5-21-blah blah" and that has full control. I can't add or remove new permssions (the buttons are greyed out). Nor can I change the permissions for the Everyone group (Full control and all other checkboxes greyed out)
I changed the owner of the folder to administrator, and I do have an administrator account, but still can't modify permissions.
I disabled all inheritance on the folder. I even attempted to use to cacls tools from microsoft to change permissions. Access was denied. I even wrote a .cmd script w/ cacls and used ETS (Elevate to system from foolish it) to run the script. No luck.
What am I missing here?
I don't know if this is Plex related or not, they just happen to be my Plex folders (and I did quit plex before doing all the steps above).
Any help would be appreciated. I'm stumped.
