    Hi Brink:
    Here's another strange DOS message after running TAKE OWNERSHIP - what do you make of it?

    ERROR: FILE OWNERSHIP CANNOT BE APPLIED ON INSECURE FILE SYSTEMS; THERE IS NO SUPPORT FOR ACLs .

    Thnx,
    Dan

    Most likely the drive you are using is not formatted NTFS. May be formatted FAT32 or FAT or exFAT. Common with SD micro cards and thumb drives. Only NTFS is a secure file system. If you right click that drive or any files in it, you will not see the Security Tab. I just tried it using a FAT32 formatted thumb drive and my results were:

    That must it since the folder I was trying to take ownership of was on a thumb drive.

    Hi,
    this doesnt work on systems with languages other than english because this command doesnt work:
    Code:
    takeown /f "Folder" /r /d y
    Because y stands for yes.

    On german systems y is not recognised. For this case the letter j is used, which stands for ja. I dont know if there is a workaround for this problem.

    Hello Eric,

    Yes, that's correct. You would just need to change the "y" for "yes" to the first letter (ex: "j") for your language version of yes (ex: "ja").

    Hi,

    A notification for new versions for all of your scripts and reg files would be a great thing
    I'm using a ton of your scripts and regs for a batch loop. But checking all of them for new version is a hard job. I think I'm using 50 or so.

    Hello Eric @BSODHunter,

    I usually do post in the tutorial thread when something has been updated unless it was something real minor that doesn't change what it does.
