can't rename folders

Posted: 07-03-2006, 03:07 PM
Whenever I create a new folder and then try to rename it the new name
reverts back to "new folder" when I hit enter. Unzipping using 7zip to a new
folder with the name of the zip file works fine. Can't rename from within
any program I've used so far. Is this a permissions thing or what? I'm
logged in as an administrator.

Same here Bernie, Also I couldn't move "my documents" to another partition.
Windows starts to move it and then says it can't move some sub folders.

Definitely sounds like a permissions thing. Have you taken "ownership" of the
directories in question? And then set your permissions to full for those
directories? Being logged in as administrator doesnt seem to mean quite the
same thing that it used to.

You could try this if you havent allready.

Right click the file or directory
Properties
Security Tab
Advanced
Owner Tab
Edit
Then select the user from the list that you want to give ownership to.

Then you will probably still have to give your self permissions too.

Right click the file or directory
Properties
Security Tab
Advanced
Edit
Edit
Then tick the check boxes to give full acess.

Yes I've tried that and it makes no difference. I have all permissions and
even ownership.

I also ran explorer as an administrator. I have found I can change folder
names using the command line rename command but not with explorer or an
explorer replacement like xplorer2.

I also discovered something odd and something I've not seen before... if you
look at the property sheet for explorer.exe and select the security tab you
will find a user/group called TrustedInstaller. On my machine this is the
only one with full control permissions. All others have Read and Execute and
Read.

You say that you have all permisions but then you say that TrustedInstaller
is the only one with full permissions. I think Im missing something I guess.
( :

So were you able to succesfully take ownership with your actual user name?

I have all permissions on the folder or folders in question.
TrustedInstaller has full permissions over explorer.exe. Two seperate
things.

Hello
have you a dual Boot? If yes , have you the same account name and password
on the two systems?
I had the same problem last week and resetting permissions don't resolve
problem. I had fill a bug report.
Only "ren" in "cmd" can rename "new folder", and strange, without "runas".
