do you like me installed a W2012 server and put in place a file server to then discover that as machine administrator you don't have the rights to open the folders on your local disk (the folders containing the user file of the file server) ?
The message that appears is:
You don't currently have permission to access this folder click continue to permanently get access to this folder
the interesting point is that if you check the folder security settings you'll find that Administrators group have rights on it, and your user IS IN THAT GROUP, so why can't you open the folder?
Yes you can click continue and gain access... unfortunately this will change the security settings of that folder and every subfolder (inheritance) inserting explicitly your user with access right, this is not very nice as behavior, also if your folder has thousand of subfolders and files it will take a long time to apply the new settings everywhere
I googled alot, many topics talks about this and many are talking about disabling UAC and so on, but the only setting I saw working fine (and it was not so simple to find around) is this one:
go to here
if not already existing, create this
EnableLUA REG_DWORD 0
and set/change it to 0 (disabling LUA)
LUA stay for Limited User Account, and set it to 0 will disable it
this will require a reboot of the server to apply the setting
Once the server is rebooted it will not display that request anymore
