Default Did I do something stupid?

Well I wanted to lock down access to an important folder so I went into properties and selected block for all the options for Users and Everyone. Now it seems I am locked out even with admin accounts and everything. does everyone block even Admin accounts? and is there anything I can do? I feel so stupid!

well there are ways, but your question flirts with the line between cracking/hacking and just file access especially since we have no way of knowing that you plan on using it on your own files and it is against your rules to discuss cracking/hacking. <-- Only reason I am giving you that response is because I had a similar problem and it is the one I got

Well I found out anyway, I had to take ownership of the folder to get access back.

Bloodstalker, thanks for reminding me of my own rules
