I want to take or assign Ownership of Files and Folders

Usually, the owner of a file or a folder has the full rights to restrict or allow others to access that source. Even if the members of the Administrator group and other authorized users have the rights to restrict or allow other users, the owner of the file has the authority in order to lock out non-administrator users. Therefore, if you want to regain the access to the restricted resource, you should contact for an administrator or a member of the Restore Operators group to take the ownership of it. This makes the file or folder owner important with respect to what permissions should be given or denied for a given resource of the Computer. If you create the resource for a file or a folder, you will become the default owner of those files. You can change or transferred ownership in several ways.


Moreover, the current owner of a file or folder can transfer the ownership to another user or group. At the same time, a member of the Administrator group can take the ownership of a file or a folder or transfer the ownership to another user or a group even if it is restricted by the Administrators.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
