I have a folder that has save files from a game I play, and I want to put them into Dropbox to be able to send them to a friend so he can see some of my saves.
The problem is that the folder wouldn't let me move it to my desktop because I apparently didn't have permission, so I Googled. I changed the security settings to add "Everyone" with full access to the list of users, selected it, and that allowed me to move it to desktop.
When putting it into Dropbox, it tells me that I don't have permission to move some of the files in the folder (but not all?). So I tell it to skip them, but some of them are exactly what my friend wants to see. When changing permissions on them or the folder to "Everyone" as I did earlier it just automatically changes the user back to administrator and removes "everyone" from the list. Trying to delete the files that did get copied that I apparently had access to first are now doing the same thing and the folder is stuck constantly trying to reupload itself over and over. I can neither move, delete, rename, or change security settings for any of it, while I could and did in order to move it in the first place. It just keeps defaulting back to needing administrator.
I /am/ the administrator, on the admin account, and the folder is set to all access, but won't let me do anything with it, and keeps removing security options when I try to change them.
What else can I do to actually be the admin of that folder and the files in it and be able to acutally move it, or at least delete the partial upload?
Windows 8.1, btw.
