Newly created admin account does not have access to folder owned by Administrators

Posted: 06-05-2008, 02:43 PM

I needed to restrict some directories in my disks to admin-only access,
so I cleared the Users and Authenticated Users permissions to the
folders using the built-in Administrator account. The problem is after
creating a new admin account, the new one does not have access to those
folders even though it is part of the Administrators group, and only the
built-in admin can still access it. Instead, Vista prompts me to acquire
permissions for that account.

I reproduced the problem on a test folder, and found out that acquiring
permissions via Vista's prompt gives permissions specific to that
account. It works, but it's messy when I have to add new admin accounts
in the future.

How do I modify permissions so that anyone under the Administrators
group immediately has access to such folders?

Thanks.
