Being unable to access files, folders, and documents is one of the biggest problems businesses and organizations can face, but managing access, security, encryption, and auditing can be a highly-complex business. Add to this the problems disk and file-system errors can bring, and projects or whole teams can quickly grind to a halt. This course covers everything you need to know to manage, diagnose, troubleshoot, and repair problems with the different Windows file systems, and file, folder, documents, permissions, access, and security across Windows 7, Windows 8. 1, and Windows 10. Consider this course a master class in becoming a truly expert file-system troubleshooter. Some of the major topics we'll cover include an in-depth look at the Windows file system detailing what's important and what can be found where; how you can troubleshoot and repair problems with the Windows disk and file systems; and how you can manage permissions, ownership, auditing, and encryption on your PCs and network file shares. By the end of this course, you'll be able to diagnose, troubleshoot, and repair any type of Windows file-system problem. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to troubleshoot the file system in Microsoft Windows on Pluralsight.
