Hi All,

I need some advice on how to remove the below permission level pop-up since this is happening after patching or may be there was some changes. If i continue i don't have a issue, but i need to this specifically to be removed since one of the application is trying to access the below folder remotely from database

Due to this permission issue, it is failing. I have provided full permission for that application user, and enabled inheritance also. Still it pops up, any settings to disable the below

    Hello again,

    Additionally, you may want to disable temporary UAC from the source and destination server to see if that mitigates the issue.

    Hope this helps,
    Best regards,

    The dialog is being displayed because UAC is enabled and the current logged on user doesn't have explicit read permissions to the folder being accessed. The usual reason for this dialog to be displayed for admin users is with UAC is enabled and the permissions that would be granted via administrators group are removed by UAC, so you are unable to access the folder. If you press the continue button, UAC\Explorer will try to explicitly assign the logged on user access permissions to the folder, the down side of this action is that additional permissions are added over the folder structure, and may not be the best or desired option.

    If you could run explorer in run as administrator mode you wouldn't have this problem, however, as explorer is started as the shell during logon, it's not possible to change the rights of a running process. If you don't want to disable UAC, the other option to use a 3rd party file browser, such as Explorer++ which will allow you to start the program in adminstrative mode.
