Administrator Owned Files Owned by Administrators Group


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1


If you take ownership of an object (a file, directory, Registry node, and so on) from an account that belongs to the Administrators group, the object is not actually owned by your specific account name, but by the Administrators group. This is the case to ease the burden of several administrators administering a single machine.
