AccessEnum showing only ??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • So when I run AccessEnum on C;\ I get about 75 locations where all three permissions simply say "???"


    and I visit the location, but can't even read the objects permissions while working from an elevanted app.  The error message reads "You do not have permission to view this objectc's ___________________________-- properties, even as an administrative user.  To try taking ownership of the object, which includes permission to view its properties, click Change above."  the ____________________________________ is all three tabs - Permissions, Auditing, and Effective Access.

    I clicked Change but was unable to take ownership of the object.  And unlike this one, many of the ??? objects are not so closely linked to the System.

    Does anyone know what this is?  Thanks!

  • I rarely visit these forums, so sorry for such a late response to your question.
    I have noticed these ?????? files as well.  It is my belief that these are caused by a pathname+filename length which exceeds some limit, somewhere around about 250 characters approximately.
    Usually this can therefore be fixed by renaming either folders which are somewhere in the path, or shortening the filename, or some combination of those.
