Description: The TakeOwnershipEx program is used to obtain access rights to files and folders on your computer. As you know, in modern versions of Windows, access to system files is limited at the NTFS level. The owner of the files is TrustedInstaller, and all users have read-only access (in most cases). TakeOwnershipEx allows users who are members of the "Administrators" group to become owners of files or folders. The "Administrators" group is set up as the owner of the file/folder, and they are granted full access rights.

The program assumes the following model of operation:

* Launched TakeOwnershipEx, got the rights to the file system object.
* Performed the necessary actions on the object.
* Launched TakeOwnershipEx, restored the original rights, permissions and owner.
Actually, the described model reveals the main difference between TakeOwnershipEx and similar programs - it allows you to restore the original permissions by returning the NTFS rights "as it was". I personally don't know of any other program that would have such an opportunity.

Why TakeOwnershipEx is needed:

I will give examples from personal experience.
1. One of my friends needed to replace the file "C:Program FilesWindows Sidebarwlsrvc.dll" in Windows Vista. If you have used this OS, you are probably aware that this file interferes with the operation of the gadget "Weather", which was depressing for my friend. With the help of TakeOwnershipEx, she got access to this file with one click, replaced it, and returned the rights to the place.
2. When I changed jobs, I got files from the previous employee that I needed to work with. The problem was that they were created on behalf of his account, and my account did not have access to them. I applied TakeOwnershipEx.
Of course, you can manage permissions using the standard Explorer interface. TakeOwnershipEx is just a tool that accelerates this process.

TakeOwnershipEx features:

• The program does not allow you to set rights to folders recursively (nested subfolders and contained files are not processed). This is done intentionally, I do not want to implement the opportunity to get on the rake by changing all permissions to WindowsWinSxS.
* The program does not work in a restricted account environment for obvious reasons.

TakeOwnershipEx restrictions:

The program does not allow you to set rights to folders recursively (nested subfolders and contained files are not processed). This is done intentionally, I do not want to implement the opportunity to get on the rake by changing all permissions to WindowsWinSxS.
* The program does not work in a restricted account environment for obvious reasons.

So, the latest version of TakeOwnershipEx is 1.2.0.1, and the list of changes in it is as follows:

* The installer has been fixed. When I opened his code, I began to doubt whether I wrote it at all. When the program was uninstalled, registry entries and garbage files remained in the system. This is fixed.
* Now the utility is registered in the Explorer context menu, from where you can access a file or folder. I draw your attention that this is an "intelligent" menu item, i.e. he "understands" himself what he needs to do - get full access or restore rights to a file or folder.
* Full support for Windows 8 and a special build of the program for it, which does not require additional installation on this system.NET Framework. Thus, the program supports the entire existing line of Windows NT 6.x.
