a folder has permissions problems, how to restore to default


New Member
video folder and videos inside d drive were not opening because of permissions.
if pc owner did not give control of his pc to anyone, where did permissions on the video folder come from. I used the internet to change permissions for this folder. permissions changed successfully . but opening video files inside the folder give various kinds of errors .
Also, files are not saving to the d drive.
how to fix this problem, please reply.

Unless you backed up the ACLs there is no rollback on ACLs for any given folder save for re-installing Windows.

If you're referring to the C:\Users\<username>\Videos then just turn on inheritance and the permissions will be what they should be
