    Windows 2008 - Access dennied to c:\Users\<user name>\LocalSettings\History

    Hi,

    I am an admin in windows 2008 server. However, I am not able to
    access the
    c:\Users\<user name>\Local Settings\History

    Anyone knows how to change the settings so I can access the folder?

    Thank you,

    You could seize ownership of the folder.

    Hi Pegasus,

    After I took over the ownership of entire folder, it still tell me
    "access dennied". Any guess?

    Thank you,

    I would get an independent confirmation that you're really the owner. Save
    the code below as GetOwner.vbs, then run it from a Command Prompt to see for
    yourself.

    Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    if WScript.Arguments.count <> 1 Then Error "Usage: GetOwner ""Name of File
    or Folder"""
    sItem = WScript.Arguments(0)
    If Not oFSO.FolderExists(sItem) _
    And Not oFSO.FileExists(sItem) _
    Then Error "Error: Cannot locate the file or folder """ & sItem & """"

    if right(sItem, 1) = "\" then sItem = Left(sItem, Len(sItem) - 1)
    sItem = Replace(sItem, "\", "\\")
    sItem = "'" & Replace(sItem, "'", "\'") & "'"

    Set oWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:")
    Set cSettings = oWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * " _
    & " From Win32_LogicalFileSecuritySetting where path = " & sItem)

    For Each oItem In cSettings
    iRet = oItem.GetSecurityDescriptor(oSD)
    If iRet = 0 Then
    WScript.echo "Owner=" & oSD.Owner.Name
    Else
    WScript.echo "Owner not found"
    End If
    Next

    Sub Error (sMsg)
    WScript.Echo sMsg
    WScript.Quit 9
    End Sub
