If you are administrator on the machine you should be able to take control
of the folders. Right click on the folder(s) and select Properties. On the
security tab add your ID back, giving it full control. If you are not able
to do that, click the Advanced button and go to the Owner tab. Select your
ID in the "Change owner to:" list, check "Replace owner on subcontainers and
objects" and click Apply. That will make you the owner and you should then
be able to reset the security permissions on the files/folders as well as
have access to them.

Please do not make multiple posts about the same problem. Keep posts
about one subject in one thread. Wait at least 24 hours before making
another post about the same subject. Patience is a virtue.

If I have been the Owner/Administrator since installation of XP, what has
caused the sudden "access denied" to many of the folders? Did one of the MS
upgrades cause this?

Thanks for your reply.
My account has administrative rights. I get "You do not have permission to
view or edit the current permission settings for (folder name), but you can
change auditing settings." This happened because I mistakenly removed every
account except "CREATOR OWNER" and my account at work "äÍÉÔÒÉÊ ëÏÐÎÉÞÅ×
(Kopnichev@clearing.ru)" from my portable HDD Security Properties and
changed an owner to "äÍÉÔÒÉÊ ëÏÐÎÉÞÅ× (Kopnichev@clearing.ru)".
Please, Help!

Right Click the Folder, select Security, next select Advanced and then go to
the Owner tab and change the Ownership.
