Changing attributes, rights and owner

right click over the folder -Properties
cacls is deprecated in Windows 7. You need to use ICACLS instead of cacls.
ICACLS "filename" /grant "Users":F
To change permissions, use an administrator account on that machine to run CACLS. If you have UAC enabled, you may have to elevate the command prompt first by right-clicking on it and choosing "Run as Administrator".
You can use cacls as follows:
* /p : Set new permission
* /e : Edit permission and kept old permission as it is i.e. edit ACL instead of replacing it.
* {USERNAME} : Name of user
* {PERMISSION} : Permission can be:
      o R - Read
      o W - Write
      o C - Change (write)
      o F - Full control
For example, to grant your user account full (F) control to files, you would use the following command (typed in an elevated Windows command prompt):
CACLS files /e /p %USERNAME%:f
Read complete help by typing following command:
cacls /?
If, for any reason, files have become disassociated with the administrator account in Windows 7, using ICACLS will NOT restore them.
You are forced to manually click EACH file, one at a time, and select Properties > Security tab > Advanced button > Permissions tab > Continue button.
If enabled, approve UAC prompt for Permissions Editor for Files and Folders and Uncheck Include inheritible permissions from thsi object's parent. Click the Remove button when prompted, then re-enable Include inheritible permissions, click OK.
This will restore your accesss to the file.
Using ICACLS *.* /RESET does not work; it ends in error "Access is denied" for the files in question.
