So i tried accessing a folder and got blocked saying i didn't have permissions so naturally i went in to properties and into security, went into advanced and tried to change the owner accept this time im completely locked out with a message of "You do not have permissions to view or edit this objects permission settings"

 

Anybody know a fix because i have no clue and every time i try to google the problem it cant seem to account for the fact that i cant change the owner of the file.

Can You tell which folder it is, where it located, ie on the same disk or partition, where is stored OS or somewhere else. 

Did You made this folder yourself or it was copied there or some of programs made it.

And one more thing - do you normally turn the computer off or usually use sleep or hibernate function.

Try giving permission to the folder and see if that helps. Follow these steps to give permissions to the drive.

1.      Right-click on the folder which you’re unable to access and select Properties.

2.    Click/tap on the Security tab and under Group or user names, then click/tap on Edit.

3.       Click/tap on Add and type everyone.

4.      Click/tap on Check names, then click/tap on OK.

5.      Select everyone, under Allow select Full control, click/tap on Apply, then Click Ok.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

This is the solution everyone provides but I can't edit or add anyone.

Yes I can.

It was a downloaded folder.

I put it in sleep when i'm not using it.
