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

#1
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/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1583612&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 Administrators:(F) /t /l /q
