Consider the following scenario on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows 7:

  • You have the Full Control permission for a folder.
  • The folder contains a subfolder or a file for which you do not have access permission.
  • You try to change the security settings for the folder. For example, you try to remove a user’s permissions from the folder.

In this scenario, you receive the following error message when you apply the changes.

An error occurred while applying security information to: [folder]

Access is denied.


However, if you click Continue in the message box, the setting changes are made successfully.
