Reset the NTFS permissions on the pool manually.

When to Use

When reinstalling the system.


  1. Right click on the drive.
  2. Open the "Security" tab.
  3. Click on the "Advanced" button at the bottom.
  4. Click on the "Change" link next to "Owner", and set the owner to "Administrators".
  5. Check the "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" option.
  6. In the Permissions tab below, delete all of the options here.
  7. Click on the "Add" button.
  8. Set the "Principal" to "SYSTEM", and check "Full Control", and hit "OK"
  9. Click on the "Add" button.
  10. Repeat the above for "Administrators", as well.
  11. Click on the "Add" button, again.
  12. Set the "Principal" to "Users" and give it the "Read & Execute", "List folder contents" and "Read" permissions. and hit "OK".
  13. Check the "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object" option underneath.
  14. Click "OK", and agree to all of the prompts that it shows.

This may take a while to complete if you have a large pool, a lot of small files, or both. This can take upwards of an hour, as it has to apply both sets of settings to each and every file on the disk.
