    Need to delete \csc Folder, "Access Denied" even in safe mode

    Hi,

    I am trying to change the location of my Offline Files in Vista (CSC Folder
    Location) folder from windows\csc to another drive. (per this thread here:
    http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/...612&SiteID=17_

    Before I do anything, I need to delete the \csc file and then set it up
    again with a symbolic link. Even in safe mode, Vista would not even let me
    touch that file. It says "access denied" even when just try to "cd csc". I
    checked if it is a junction by searching


    I am searching for hours know and get desparate.

    Any Ideas what I am doing wrong?

    Hello,

    You cannot modify this folder because you do not have access to it.

    To gain access, follow these steps:

    - Open an elevated command prompt (right-click, run as administrator)

    - Type these commands:

    cd %systemroot%
    takeown /f csc /r /a /d y > NUL
    icacls csc /grant AdministratorsF) /t /l /q
