After the latest update to Windows 10, my Windows temporary directory was updated such that I re-encountered some of the problems I’d experienced earlier in the year. When I fixed the problem I didn’t write down the actions that I’d taken to restore access to my own files. This time I did.
takeown /F *.jpg /A
icacls * /grant QW:(OI)(CI)F /T
I found the answers using StackOverflow. The older answers only mentioned
cacls. The updated ones referred to
takeown. Whether or not I needed to run
takeown I don’t really know. I hope I won’t have to revisit this again in the near future.
