Dude, that worked for my PC over the network thanks, but not the host PC, weird. I think i'll just move the files now while I can and just make a new folder.
how did I not find it before? lol
Well it is sort of fixed

IS there not a way to just completely reset all security permissions for a single folder and subfolders/files?

Forget about accessing it over the network for now. When you access the folder via the PC the files are stored on, which account are you logging in with? What are the permissions on that folder?

The easiest way to reset all security permissions is log in as an admnistrator, change the owner of the folder to administrators (right click folder, click properties, select security, advanced, owner, edit, other users or groups, select administrators, replace owner on subcontainers, click OK), then go back to security, advanced, change permissions, and add any users or groups that exist on that PC that you would like. If you want to remove the security groups that are there, you will have to uncheck the include inheritable permissions box and check remove. This will take all existing permissions away, but allow you to add anything you want. When you add a new group, select the permissions you want for that group, check the replace all child permissions box (to push these settings to any files orr folders created in that folder) and click apply.

if you still need help, id be open to doing a teamviewer session to help out.

Thanks again. I ended up going on teamviewer with tompsonn and he fixed it all for me, he basically did that and some other stuff on both PCs and set it up.

Windows gets too complicated some times. lol
