Documents and settings

Posted: 06-17-2006, 10:52 PM
I cannot access drive c:/Documents and settings. Even though I am the
adminstrator and have UAC turned off I do not have permission to access that
folder. What do I need to do to have the correct permissions...

it is a legacy folder to maintain compatability.
data is now under "USERS" further down the folder tree.

I'm having the same issues. Were you able to find a cure for the problem.

I understand that it's a legacy folder, but I still need access to it and
others under the users folder. I'm logged in as Domain Admin and have turned
off UAC under the msconfig.

Why are the permissions set improperly on the Documents and Setting shortcut
and sub directories and where do those shortcuts actually go?

as has been said numerous times, the origional Doc and Settings folder is now a legacy folder for compatibility no longer used.

check under USERS further down the tree.

Why have you again changed things between different versions of Windows. We'd
all just got used to My Documents / My Computer (and amended our core
back-office systems/programs with that in mind) etc then you go and change
it.. I struggle with why this has changed as i can see no benefit.

We all want a new OS but banal elements such as this should surely have been
left alone?? Who decides these things and doesn't wonder about the knock-on
impact....? I despair guys..
