Preferred Solution: file access is denied, you don't have permission to access

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, I have been having trouble trying to delete this executable(.exe) file on Windows 10 Pro. It says the following: "'File Access Denied: 'You need permission to perform this action.'" I have had this error message before and I solved it through the file's properties/security tab and re-entering my username/administrator to the Object Name but this did not work. I also tried running the rm command in the windows powershell (admin) but that did not work either. It is nothing important and is only a .exe to a game which was leftover from an uninstall. So I'm lost. Any help would be appreciated!

Hey guys,

I'm having a lot of trouble with downloading a file, and am in desperate need of help. The file that I try to download simply says "Failed" in Firefox; Chrome decides to do nothing at all when attempting to download in that browser, and IE constantly states that I do not have the right permissions to run or save the file.

The thing is I do have the right permisisons. I am the admin, the only user, with Full Control on everything; including IE and the Downloads folder. This permissions issue crops up now and then and I never understand why, how can I possibly add more permissions to "Full Control"?

Dropbox also failed due to permissions. I'm out of ideas since all of my browsers are failing miserably!

Also tried an email via my friend. Extracted file with WinRAR and what a surprise, Access is denied.

Help please, I just want to download and install a program. That's it.
 

Answer:File Permission Access Denied

This should likely be in the MS / Windows board. The permissions in question are very likely pertaining to the user account. Most likely the user profile or Windows itself is corrupted. You could try creating a new account and adding Admin rights to that account. That's the extent of my Windows profile expertise.

On Windows7 Pro,  trying to run IIS.  The way I am used to execute is  on the browser "localhost".  I used to have the code in the directory  C:\inetpub\wwwroot.   Even before I copy,  I am hoping to see

Error message 401.3: You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied (access denied due to Access Control Lists). Ask the Web server's administrator to give you access to 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot'.

This is a new computer. I connected to external USB drives to this computer. One is a traditional 1TB hard drive and the other is a 240 gb ssd drive. My problem is that on the traditional drive, I can not access one of my files. On the SSD drive, I can see the drive listed by can not access. I get a message that states I do not have permission to access. These work fine on my old HP computer but for some reason do not work on this new machine. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

I run into this problem often. When working with Photoshop files (PSD in the most recent case), sometimes when I make a change and then try to save the changes I come up with this error dialog. My work flow is always the same - I am the computer's administrator.
I am the only person with access to this computer. There are no other users on this computer. This computer is not tied to any server or network. My files are generated from my own work obtained from my camera. I normally save changes to the file several times
so I won't lose my work. I can save the file using a different name, but then I cannot delete the original file unless I reboot the computer and open it up again. Please explain why this randomly reoccurs.

Answer:File Access Denied - You require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file

Hi dmiddleton123,
"When working with Photoshop files (PSD in the most recent case), sometimes when I make a change and then try to save the changes I come up with this error dialog. "
When did the issue start to occur ?The issue only occur with the specific software ?Have you tried to change another location to saved file or reopen the software (end the software process from the task manager)to have a check ?
This issue is a little weired,please take the following steps to have a check .
1.Run "sfc /scannow" to check the health of the system files .
2.Perform a full scan with an antivirus software .
3.Perform a clean boot to verify whether there is a third party conflict here.
How to perform a clean boot in Windows

4.Create a new administrator and login with it to have a check.There is a possibility that the present account profile has corrupted.
 
If the issue only occurred with the specific software ,it is also recommended to ask for help from the software developer .

Hello everyone!

I come here with a "bug" that is really really starting to cause problems.

Firstly, I would like to direct you to this thread.

I asked for help on another forum and well you can see what we went through, however they were not able to completely solve the problem.

I've done some quick tests, and it has basically ended up being that whenever an exe file is involved, Windows will go crazy with permissions or something.

The behaviour is pretty much that I try to delete a folder with exe files in it, and it will tell me that I do not have permission to do so. If I go inside the folder, I can delete the files no problem. Once they're gone, I can delete the folder.

But other instances are that when I try to delete some files, the file will remain, but it won't be there, my computer will say that I need to specify the correct path. Then after a few minutes, the file will actually disappear.

This has become quite a nuisance, because for example, I need to run Punkbuster so I can play some games. Punkbuster runs 2 services, PnkbstrA.exe and PnkbstrB.exe

PnkbstrB.exe is created by PnkbstrA.exe when a game is launched and it's updated on-the-fly. This is a problem, since my system will then deny access to PnkbstrB.exe, so A can't delete/update or do anything to the file for a few minutes, and I'll just end up being kicked in-game because I don't have B.

If I go into the Syswow64 folder, B is there, but you can'... Read more

Since build 10166 I can not open Outlook 2010 on my PC. I am getting the message that I do not have permission to open the folders. I can get it to open if I open as admin but that has limited functionality.
Any ideas? I have checked the folders properties and there is nothing in there that has changed.

Answer:Build 10166 Outlook won't open message - 'file access is denied - you do not have permission

I found this elsewhere
- Got to your hard drive and right-click the folder that's causing all the trouble.
- Click Properties.
- Click the Security tab
- Then click Advanced
- You'll see a window with some usernames. Now click Owner in the tabs above.
- Click Edit, then select the username you wish to be able to open the folder and be sure to check the box that says "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" then hit Apply.
A pop up will come up that says something like 'You have replaced the ownership for the selected folders' or something in that manner. It worked for me and hopefully this post is still useful to some people
I changed access to users to full control and now it opens fine.

Answer:Access Denied You don't have permission to access

For starters, where are you trying to access it from? Is this an Internet connection from home, college, business, etc? If it's a home connection, perhaps you should speak with your ISP to see if there are any issues. As for business and colleges: the people in charge of networking at these respective establishments would be the best bet.

On both 64Bit & 32Bit Win7 machines I get an error message, denying access to a file in a folder within another folder. All have been shared, permissions granted & drives mapped to each folder. That is in addition to initially applying the changes to the file folder, subfolders, and files.

The message comes after the Client machine accesses the program, and attempts to generate a pdf.

The 64 is Win7-Win7 connection, while the 32 is connected to an XP.
Initially, I thought it to be a 64 issue. However, now it seems to be a Win7.
I have set to the Program to Run As Administrator & changed the Compatibility to XP Service Pack 3 to no avail.

First off, I wasn't sure where the best place to post this would be, since UAC is supposed to be a security feature of windows 7 I figured the security section would be best. My apologies if I posted this in the wrong section.

OK to the problem...

Trying to simply copy/paste a game dll file from a folder on a virtual(.iso) drive to a folder on my main drive. I get the error window titled, "File Access Denied" with the following:

"You need permission to perform this action

You require permission from Everyone to make changes to this file"
_________________________________________________________

Strange thing is this, I also have this same dll file in another folder on my main drive, but I get the same message with the permission requirement coming from my own user name.

Like in the title of my post I have taken ownership of all folders/files in question, am using the only admin account on this machine, and have given my username "full control" permissions over said files/folders. Also for troubleshooting purposes I have disabled UAC completely and still get the error message.

Hi, i have this problem that i cannot solve. i know why it happened but i was kinda trying stuff without really knowing what i was doing, so now i turn to this forum cause i tried all i could think/find and i still cant solve my mistake.

I had two HD,
C: with XP pro sp3 and linux (dual boot)
D: formated in ntfs with all extra data (songs, video, reports, receipt etc..)

When i had these two working normally, i needed to restrict the access of the second HD (the D to only one computer on the network so i messed around with the permission. I ended up deleting the whole list;
it was looking like this (under the security tab of the HD properties)
"Administrator"
"SYSTEM"
"User" X\username"

So i deleted these, it gave me problems , then i found how to re-take owner ship. but i only re-added

"User" X\username

i could then again access my files on the D: . but i still couldnt share my files as i wanted for some reason. so i decided to re-install windows...big mistake!!

I formated the C:, re-installed windows on it, no problem with that. But now i see the second HD in windows explorer as RAW and access is denied. Meaning the HD is detected and listed there, but the used space and total space amount is not showing, if i click properties, instead of NTFS its says RAW. If i try to open it to explore the content, i get an access denied message.

Hello geeks,

So I was going through my Program Files to delete unwanted folders and files but I keep running into this message even after I changed the Permission settings in the Security Properties of the Program Files Folder. My account is set as administrator but it wants me to get administrator permission. Also under "Group or user name" are the TrustedInstaller, System, Creator Owner necessary to have there? One last question, why is there two Administrator usernames "Administrators username/Administrator" and "Users username\Users" because I only have one account on here and I'm the only one that uses it?

P.S. I'm attaching some snapshots of these messages. Thanks everyone.
 

Answer:Folder Permission Access Denied

What account are you currently logged into on that computer? Its possible that you are logging in as a temp profile that does not have the proper permissions.

The TrustedInstaller, System, and Owner should be in the permissions for those folders so leave those in there.

An easy way to see what profile you are logged in as would be just going to the Downloads folder and verify the path is your actual username and not some Temp profile.

Also it looks as if this computer is part of a domain or all these all local accounts?

To begin with I hope this is the right forum to present my issue. I've read some post's and cannot make heads or tails of most. I'm not very tecchy. I am running WinXP-Pro (SP3) and have an external HD (372GB). Somehow, the majority of my data (folders and files) on this drive has been moved to a LONG numbered folder and made inaccessible to me. I have paid a couple of online services for tech support and they cannot restore my accessibility to this data.

I am told that someone with a Linux system can access the data on this drive and change the permissions enabling me access again. A Windows based system will not work. They would have to copy and paste the data into new folders. I'm not a tech and really don't know what they are talking about. I am just echoing what was said to me. I don't even know if what I have been told is valid or not. Is there someone here with knowledge of both Windows and Linux that can at least tell me if this is true or not. I don't want to continue wasting my time and money if I'm only spinning my wheels.

What I do know, is that I don't have the money to be spending on services that in the end tell me, "Oh well, we can't help you, but if you go here, they will." This, and only to be played the same tune at the next stop! I don't have the resources to continue paying out and not getting results.

I am having trouble with getting permission to a registry key/editing it. I am logged in as Admin and ran the registry editor as admin too. But still could not acces it. I am having problems with steam as it is not responding to protocols steam:// . I need help with accesing the key and getting permisions to it.

Answer:Registry Permission Denied - Access

If you are having problems deleting that registry key download regkiller its free. If you cannot edit it you probably have a program open related to that registry entry, kill the process related to it and it should work.

Hey there. I have been fighting this issue for four hours and so far it has ruined my morning. I am needing to work on some coding that's due and I'm now four hours behind, because, well, frankly... I can't open it.

I turned on my computer this morning, which is a laptop I just bought last Friday for new years. It ran great all weekend, and the laptop itself isn't the problem. When I started my computer, everything fired up and I immediately when to Notepad++ to work on my code.

Problem is, when I tried to save the file it wanted to save it as a new file. So, I went to the file's location and tried to rename it, and it said I didn't have permission to edit the file. I clicked continue, to give myself permissions to the file I was JUST EDITING last night, and it said I didn't have permission. Clicking "Try Again" 50 times does nothing.

To test this problem, I went to a video game folder and tried to delete a modification, and it did the same exact thing. After that, I tried to delete a sound wav file from my Audacity folder, and it deleted just fine... It seems to be folders only, but even then, it lets me delete some folders.

After my latest restart and Windows Update for lunch hour, I have the same problem but now it gives me a little more information. Now, it says You require permission from DESKTOP-038M48A/RhapidFyre to modify this file

The problem? I'm RhapidFyre.

Since installing Windows 8, I have been having sporadic problems with access denied. Examples follow:

PIMEX is a Personal Information Manager that I have been using through several generations of Windows. When I first converted to Windows 8, this program worked with no problems. Now, however, when I try to open the program, I get the message "PIMEX database could not be opened. Error message: permission denied". If I use the Control Panel to uninstall the program, and then reinstall the program, I am able to open it normally and work with it and use all functions. Once I close the program, however, and try to open it again, I once again get permission denied.

PaperPort is a program that manages scanned images. The program can scan either photos or text documents. If text is selected, the program creates a PDF file that the user names. These scanned files are then stored in PaperPort folders. When I try to display one of these files, PaperPort invokes PDF Viewer Plus (included with the package), and I get the message access denied. If I try to use the Windows 8 Reader to display the file, I get a "Sorry, can't display this file message". Likewise, I cannot display the file using Adobe software.

HI there! I am new to this website and so ask forgiveness for any mistakes I do make.
 
I'm running a windows 7 home basic 64-bit system on a laptop and have had it for about 2 years now, evverything has been working perfectly fine, up until yesterday where all of a sudden, I couldn't access my files and it wouldn't allow me to intall new programs where it loads up an error saying ''Unable to write file, access denied error code 5'', also it wouldn't allow me to open any of my files, saying I do not have the correct permissions to access these folders although I'm using the administrator account (which is the only one on this laptop). My antivirus [AVG 2013] does not open up anymore for some reason and cannot be uninstalled, I had two other ''pc-friendly'' programs which worked alongside AVG perfect, Advanced system care 7 and Baidu PCFaster, both of them were deleted I think, I can not open them and I tried re-installing both, got the ''Cannot write file'' error. That about sums up the mess I'm in, appreciate your help a lot!

I have just had a new PC installed and although it is behaving itself fairly well, I noticed that several of my programs are opening in a "normal window", whereas I prefer them to be maximized. So I follow the basic routine of right-clicking the appropriate desktop shortcut, then "Properties" and clicking on "Run Maximized".
But then I receive a message "Access Denied - you will need to provide administrator permission to change these settings"! As I am the only user of the PC, what does this mean, and how can I avoid this message?

I have kinda setup a network with my computer and a laptop which has just been formatted. It now has XP service pack 2 installed and I have to enter the password and username of an account on the laptop in order to access the resources.
Now I can access the laptop using my computer, when the laptop tries to access my computer, and tries to get a file, the message on the title always comes up.

I have unchecked simple file sharing and enabled full access (read/write) on the laptop whose account Im using. But it didnt work.

When opening my computer today, I have noticed a message about migration and program controls and some information about windows NT and windows 3.x This has never popped up and am wondering if this has made any changes to my computer not the laptop.

So Is there a simple way that does not restrict the laptop from getting the resources on my computer??

Hi all,

We have a problem here. We use Windows 98 and vista business edition in a network.

We want to use vista pc as a file share for a vb application. That is we want to keep the access database file on the vista and applications on win 98 (SE) machines.

But we are unable to do that.

We tried the following:

1. Accessing from vista to either XP or 98 is perfectly OK. Copying, editing, deletions everything is possible.

2. Accessing from 98 to XP is perfectly OK as above.

3. Accessing from 98 to vista, following problems are observed

(Drive on Vista used for file share is FAT 32):

* Pinging is OK

* Shared folders on vista are visible

* When double clicking on the folder, 98 system hangs

* Public folders on Vista are accessible sometimes. But not stable.

* Files of tiny size can be opened/copied from 98

Can you test it and help us.

We would like to use the Vista PC as a file share in the network.

hopefully,

I am trying to download a purchased copy of the Chicago Manual of Style software. I have successfully been able to load this onto my laptop which is running Vista Home Premium, 32 bit Dell Inspiron.

The problem: I have attempted to load the same software on my desktop (HP Pavillion a6220n, 32 bit, Vista Home Premium). My computer will not allow the disc to be loaded. I receive the following error message:

C: \Windows\SYSTEM 32\CONFIG.NT. Error Code 0x0. You do not have sufficient privilege to access this file. See your system administrator. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

Although the software does not indicate it is compatible with Vista, it loaded perfectly on the laptop. I can only guess that my desktop recognizes that the program is not Vista compatible or it needs a patch of some sort. If so, I couldn't find it on the University of Chicago's Manual of Style web page. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I built a new desktop and did a clean Windows 7 64-bit install. I hooked up the hard drive from my old PC, which had XP on it, so I could copy all the files over to my new hard drive. But when I try, I keep getting errors that I don't have permission to access the file or copy the file. I was trying to do it for specific folders, but then I still needed to go through the process to ask for permission for each individual file inside the folder! So I changed the security settings for the entire drive by right clicking E:/, going to security and changing the permission for "Everyone" and checked the box "full control," which then checks all the boxes. And yet, when I try to copy folders from my old My Documents, it's still giving me error messages. I don't want any security settings at all. No one else is ever going to use this computer. But at the very least I need to copy these files. Please tell me how to do this, thanks in advance.

All three users, Barb, Bob, Brian, in the advertising department received 'denied access' and 'you need permission to perform this action' while attempting to access the share folder-files 'srv-adv' on the domain server 2008 r2.

In the share security I gave Barb, Bob, Brian and the administrator full control. That did not work. I received 'denied access' and 'you need permission to perform this action'.
However after I added and gave Everyone full control the three workers in advertising were able to access the shared folders and files. I thought by given just the advertising workers full permission that would have been sufficient. Not so, I had to add Everyone with full permissions.

I then created an 'advertising' group and added to that group Administrator, Barb, Bob, Brian and gave them full permissions.

I am stuck at this point. Do I remove from the share 'srv-adv' each user and then add the group 'advertising' to the share? What I want to do is to have the users added to advertising group unfettered access to the share 'srv-adv'.

And because I encountered 'denied access' and 'you need permission to perform this action' what "member of" do I add to advertising group without having to add 'Everyone' with full permissions?

PS I created only the group 'advertising' and did not create a 'group policy'. I don't know is that makes a difference.

Thanks

Answer:you need permission to perform this action with access denied at share

Go through Setup Shared Folder in Windows Server 2012 to see if sharing is setup properly.

Hello,

I am attempting to access an application.exe file on my desktop. Each time that I click on it the Windows message, "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." pops up. I am the system administrator so this should NOT be a problem but apparently many out there are dealing with this as well. I can delete, move and even copy the file but I cannot run it. There is no option for override with password or grant permission. It just says that I cannot run it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, the system I am running is Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Answer:Windows can't access file. May not have permission to access.

Hello KyRy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might check to see if you can right click on the file, click on Properties, click on Security tab, and make sure that you have Read & execute permission allowed (checked) for your user account or the administrators group.Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups
If not, then you might see if you may be able to install and use the free program Unlocker on the file to have access to it afterwards.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have amassed hundreds of files that I cannot delete. Generally, the ones that have been on my computer for a long time, I am able to move around, but not to the Recycle Bin and I can't delete them permanently. I've read through hundreds of Google results telling me that I need to turn off or turn on User Account Control, or go into the properties of the file and take ownership of it. Sometimes those techniques (and many others, for example, a forced delete through Command Prompt) work, but only on a few files. Sometimes the problem goes away with a reboot. Sometimes it's as simple as moving it to another directory before deleting it. Sometimes it goes away with time or a whole lot of messing with it. But in the end, I go through enough files each week that I'm left with an inordinate amount that refuse to be deleted.

I originally had UAC off. I figured that there was no point in having it off, so I ended up turning it back on. There has been no difference. Files could not be deleted beforehand, and still, I am unable to delete them now. The same errors come up either way. The only difference is that when UAC is on, there is an extra step before the error where it asks me to continue, as is UAC's purpose.

Going to Properties --> Security and then changing ownership and giving myself full control does nothing. I don't see why it should when I'm the sole user of the computer. Still, I keep trying it and I admit that there are times where... Read more

If I try to move or copy them, Vista says "You need permission to perform this action. Try Again. Cancel". If I use CMD to do it, it says Access Denied. If I try opening the videos files that are like that, the video player says File not Found.

I've tried botting in safe mode, enabling and logging in as the administrator (both in regular windows and safe mode), tried loading the vista installation cd, and using command prompt to copy the files.... but it says "Access Denied".

I've tried taking ownership using takeown or cacls, NO LUCK! I've also tried right clicking, properties, and messing with the security settings, still.. NO LUCK.

Happy Holidays n Welcome to our forum.Posting is not very clear, but it sounds like a permission issue.It would help a lot to post the exact warning or error. This will let us help u more.  Did u validate Windows? Is the Win CD a genuine Windows CD?Lets try to start u in Safe Mode to see if we can get u into a new Admin account.1- reboot PC as soon as it starts, start pressing F8 Key. This will not load Windows and give u some option. Choose Safe Mode with Network. Windows will start to load just follow the directions. Once Window starts it will load only enough to get started. There's not much u r going to damage at this stage. All we want to do is here is create 2 new accounts. One new Administrator account and one Regular account (with Administrator privileges).  U can name the new accounts anything u want. Just remember which one is the new Admin account and the regular account. To create the new account:Go to >Start>Control Panel>User Accounts> Select new accounts. Name each account, u will want to create a Computer Admin and a Limited user account.When done just reboot and Windows will load with the 2 new accounts u just created. 2- Log on with the new Admin account and see if u get the same message. If u do, post the exact message on the next thread.3- the regular account should also be tested. Once again see if u get the same message. If different post the message. Write back let us know.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 Intel Pentium running Windows XP  sp3 and have been getting tons of junk mail. I ran Avast, malware bytes &spybot. Nothing found. So I started looking through the Dell help on my computer. I'm not as savvy as I'd like to be and while trying to fix the issue myself I did something that I shouldn't have. First, I tried system restore to go back to a later date but it wouldn't let me no mater which date I tried. Then,I followed a suggestion regarding the registries. HUGE mistake! Now my computer is stuck in a boot loop. I obviously need to repopulate my hives but have no idea how. When the computer starts the Windows XP logo pops up.

Answer:lsass.exe Access Denied a process has requested access to an object, but has not been granted those access rights

Windows XP has reached end of life 2 years ago... It is an insecure Operating System and should no longer be used especially online.
The Dimension 2400 is weak hardware (Pentium 4 Processor, IDE hard drive, DDR RAM) from 2003! so 13 years old! Its not worthwhile running a modern Operating System on it and below minimum system requirements.
If on a budget you are best to buy a second hand OptiPlex 780 with a Windows 7 OEM license (which can be used for a free Windows 10 upgrade).

This is strange, because I was able to copy the folder the file is in, from the Downloads folder to my Desktop.. but now suddenly I don't have permission to access the file?

EDIT:

Mod, I see you moved this thread from the security section.. ( I thought it belonged there since it is a security issue) But.. you renamed the title.. it was called " Baseball Bat - Meet Computer !" Why did you rename my thread? Change it back. I named the thread that title for a reason. I want my title back!

Edit, I am trying to change my title back from the Advanced Editor.. I still wish to know why you would do such a thing.

Edit: It only created a sub title. Please change my main title back.

I also notice that under Properties, and the Security tab, I cannot change the permissions. I should be able to as I AM the administrator.

Answer:I don't have permission to access the file!

Hello all,

I think this is my first problem i have encountered since i bought my laptop which is running vista. Ok, maybe it;s been only a few months but still...Also, i wasn;t sure in which section this should have gone, so if i messed up i apologize.

Basically, i installed World of Warcraft and it's expansions and started patching it. When patching from 3.1.0 to 3.1.1, the process kept stoping and 70% then just exit without returning any error in return. So i thought i should run the Repair tool and try again. Only now, when i tried to access WoW.exe i got this error:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

So i came upon this little reg file called Take Ownership, i ran it but nothing has changed. Also, if i: right click wow.exe->properties->compatibility i cannot tick the "Run this program as an administrator" box.

My only options now, are a complete reinstall of the game and patches (but that's just wrong, because there has to be a more logical solution). If anybody has any ideas please let me know. I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks.

Answer:Cannot access file because i don;t have appropriate permission(WoW.exe)

WoW has been having problems with its servers. You may have to reinstall.

Hi,
I have copied my photos to a portable hard drive for backup purposes and can see them and print them but I do not have permission to copy or move them to another location either on the remote drive or to my pc.
The file permission is owned by root (Unix User\root).
I have tried altering this via the file or its folder properties but once again I do not have permission.
I have tried this on my desktop (windows XP)and my laptop (windows 7).
I am the administrator on both PCs.

Answer:File access permission

"The file permission is owned by root (Unix User\root)."
Really? That's an indication that the files were on a Unix server, and if that's the case the file owner has to modify the permissions using the chmod command.

From somewhere, somehow, a folder named "24cd9e4542d29590bce925ec30" has been created in my W7x86pro root dir. Trying to look inside, I had to "permanently get access". But then inside it, there are a whole lot of folders named things like 1025, 1028, 1029, etc, ending with 3076, and 3082.

What's in those folders, I have no idea, since every time I try to open one, I first get the "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" dialog, and then when I click Continue, I get "You have been denied permission to access this folder".

Also inside the "24cd9e4542d29590bce925ec30" folder, there are files, like "Setup.exe" and "NDP40-KB2473228.msp" and "SetupEngine.dll" and some *.bmp and some other files. I guess that NDP40-KB2473228.msp gives away that this folder has something to do with some .NET framework update, but AFAIK, there's no .NET-anything installed on this computer.

I want to remove the "24cd9e4542d29590bce925ec30" folder, but there seems to be no way I can get permission to do that. trying to get ownership or set access rights, all I get is "Access denied" or similar.

Does anyone know:
1. What those folders and files are doing there?
2. How do I remove them?

Hi all,

I've seen old threads similar here but can't seem to find a solution:

Windows button> life at a glance> photos.... there are some photos that are blank and the error "It looks you do not have permission to access this file. Check permissions and try again."

If I navigate to my pictures, there are no folders or images with dates corresponding to the blank pictures I accessed above.

I upgraded from 7 to 10 about 3 months ago and never noticed this until now. 75% of my pictures are there but there are a number of contiguous dates with multiple blank photos (with file numbers.) Oddly, the pictures I CAN see are both earlier and later than the ones that I "don't have permission for." I have a back up of my stuff so I can get them but I am interested in the *why* and any fix that I ought to apply.

Hello SevenForums users!

Yesterday I reformatted my PC, everything went just fine. However, when I'm now trying to access a folder in my (D hard drive I get "you have been denied permission to access this folder" I do know how to fix the problem folder and files each, but how can I fix this error for my hole (D hard drive? Is there a more simple way to fix this without going through all my files? There's also "unknown" users with numbers that have access to the files, like it would be my old user before reformat. How can I remove them the most simple way?

I also want to know why did this happen? I have reformatted before and didn't encounter this problem, and I can't think of anything that would make this happen.

How can I prevent this from happening again? I reformatted my PC after fixing some of the access to see if it would happen again, and it did.

I also noticed that on some folders there are a lock on the icon, as well as that most of the folders are write protected and I cant remove it!?

Hi all,

First post so apologies for sharing the burden. I am running a Win Server 2008 R2. One of my users informed me that he could not access a couple of folders within the server. Upon checking, I found out that even I do not have access to the folder, even in administrator account. Whenever I try to open it, it says 'you don't currently have permission to view this folder. Click continue to permanently get access to this folder.' so I clicked Continue.

It comes out with another popup that says 'You have been denied permission to access this folder. To gain access to this folder, you need to use the security tab. The security tab part is clickable so I did.

It shows the folder properties > Security with a message of 'You do not have permission to view or edit this object's permission settings.' I clicked the Advanced tab > Owner -> Edit button. Checked the Replace owner or subcontainers and objects. I can see the Administrators as a choice. I even tried keying in an individual user. After that, I clicked 3 subsequent OKs.

Nothing happened. Kinda stumped on this. I did read some help from here earlier but it couldn't work. I can't just 'restart' this as its a running server. Halp pls.

Question: File Access Denied

Not sure if this is the correct area to post but here goes.
I am running Windows 7 RC, I have removed the hard drive from one of my older computers running Windows xp home, it has two password protected accounts on it and the drive is unbootable after installing service 3 on it.
I need to get the data files off the drive ie pics, docs etc. I have plugged the drive into my win 7 computer via a USB IDE drive adapter so I can read the contents of the drive. I am thinking the password protection is what is giving me the messages "You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy this file" whenever I try to copy files off the hard drive.
I had to change permissions on the folders to even view the files, and some of the files have copied with no more problems. how do you change the permissions on files rather than folders when the security tab is not available?
is there a nifty program available like file locker to do this globally?

Question: File Access Denied

I will try to keep this simple. I have an application in a folder, one level below the main parent folder. The name of the folder is C:\mfaktc. The name of the executable in the folder is mfaktc.exe. There is also a support library in the same folder. The executable is a console application. When I open a command prompt window and change to the correct folder, then type the name of the application and press Enter, I get a short message,"Access denied." The application deletes itself. I've never had an application delete itself in my many years of experience.

A little background. This is running with Windows 7 Professional (x86) on an AMD Athlon 64 X2. I have no antivirus programs running and I disabled Windows Defender while trying to figure this out. I have been told this has something to do with "permissions." I wouldn't think this would delete anything.

Thoughts anyone?

Hi,

Ive taken out a physical hard disk and put it into my main machine as an additional drive (ie. not booting the pc from this disk). I did this because of a failed boot and inability to read the file system from a boot cd.

I did a chkdsk /r on the drive, and the file system is back. Ive also done a pass on the drive with a virus scanner and noticed a folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\Services\" with the all of the files consisting of randomly generated executable names (514 in total), refer to attached text file for full list, here is a quick sample:

18/06/2004 03:55 AM 131,584 AdN.exe
18/06/2004 03:55 AM 107,520 AEQr.exe
18/06/2004 03:55 AM 163,328 AFEk.exe

In explorer, the files show as green (i assume that means ntfs compressed).

The problem is the virus scanner logs the file as "access denied".

The file initially had security permissions set to everyone with write only and the owner was some wierd clsid like object. I set the parent owner to administrator and the access rights to everyone to full control, set to inheret from parent. Still access is denied.

I now tried to deal with a single file and did the same with it. still access is denied. When I right click on a file in explorer, the popup menu takes 3-5 seconds to display, which I assume is again a access denied problem.

Bear in mind, Im not booting from this disk, I've set owner to administrator and set permission full control to everyone on the file and still access is denied.

Answer:File Access is denied

I know your getting access denied, but try moving one of the files to your other hard drive. Just make sure you have an anti-virus running and fully updated before hand. If it allows the move then the anti-virus might be able to scan it as it moves. If not then i would say these files might of just been recovered from prior deletes or something strange like that.

Maybe try using CACLS in CMD. do a cacls /? to get all of the switches.

When I double click to open I get: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

If I go into properties there is no security tab because the DVD is read only.

If I try to copy the file to my desktop I get: "Files on this CD-ROM are read-only. You can't move or delete files on this CD-ROM"

I'm not trying to 'Move' or 'Delete'. Im choosing copy, not cut so I don't understand what its problem is.

Could any one point me in the right direction?

I can successfully copy the entire contents of the CD, except this one file.

If you can't copy it, you can't change the permissions. It sounds like the file is corrupted. Take the disc out and wipe it down for any smudges, etc. Examine for scratches. Try to get your hands on the original. If you cannot get the original, then you try to recover it with BadCopy Pro

If you get Access Denied in WinXP Pro. Try ?taking ownership? of the file/folder before it can be accessed. First of all go to Folder Options, View Tab and in the Advanced Settings at the end, untick ?Use simple file sharing?, which will allow the Security Tab to be shown in the file?s properties. Also, in Folder options, make sure hidden and system files can be viewed.
To take ownership of the file (it?s best done at the folder level), right-click it, Properties, Security Tab, add your user name, fill in all the permissions and Apply. You can now access it.

Question: File Access Denied

When you right click on a photo and go to Properties -> Details , there is a link at the bottom called Remove Properties and Personal Information that will remove the camera EXIF data, GPS location and other metadata.

I took a photo on my iPad and emailed that picture to my Windows 8 laptop. The photo contains personal information including my GPS location that I want to remove. When I try to remove it I get an error message saying File Access Denied....You need permission to perform this action. I'm the only user on this laptop...I'm the Administrator. I have Full Control over this file in permissions. I even added the Take Ownership thing to the right click menu and tried that, but it still wouldn't allow me to remove the personal information from the photo.

It works on photos taken with my other digital cameras, just not with photos taken with my iPad. Any ideas?

Answer:File Access Denied

I just downloaded an iPad sample photo from The Verge to try and I get the same ?File Access Denied? error as you.

Looking on the Microsoft site they say ?If you added properties using a program other than Windows, you should remove those properties using that program. The Remove Properties dialog box removes properties that were added using Windows, but it might not be able to remove all properties added by some programs?.

So, it seems that for whatever reason Windows is unable to remove image metadata created by Apple devices. Therefore, unless someone else can come up with a work-a-round, I think you'll either have to use Apple software, or resort to using third party software to remove it.

If you have Photoshop it?ll give you the option to remove Metadata when you save for web and device. If you don?t have access to Photoshop, then your guess is as good as mine as I haven?t personally used any Metadata removal software. Google search brings up a few, but I don't know which ones are trustworthy or any good.

Personally, I'd probably try something like Faststone Image Viewer, as it has the option to remove Metadata and it?s software that?s well known and has been around a while. According to the version history, in 2007 they ?Added ?Remove JPEG Metadata? to Tools menu. It allows you to remove metadata such as EXIF, IPTC, embedded thumbnails etc from jpeg files?.

Hi Joe. Windows won't let your change amd or delete any file in use. To keep MSN Messenger from starting up when Windows starts, OPEN MSN Messenger and under the MENUS at the top look for Options or Preferences.

Sometimes Windows thinks a file is in use even when it's not. Reboot and then try to delete the file.

Question: File Access Denied

I have a Dell 4500 using Windows XP who's processor died. I removed the hard drive and attached it to my Dell 1150 via a IDE/USB adapter kit. It appears that everything is available. However, when I go to 'Documents and Settings\JustJeff206\documents it states that it is not accessible and that Access is denied. Other files that are not under my directory can be accessed. I have run Chkdisk with no problems detected.

Can anyone help me recover access to my Dell 4500 documents? Is there a XP setting somewhere that needs to be corrected, or what? Help!!

So, it's like this: I used to have some files on a laptop with windows xp. In that computer, the files only had permissions for admins, I think. I never had problems accessing those files in the laptop.
Later that laptop died, but I managed to get those files in my new computer. Problem is, I can't access those files now. I get an "access denied" warning.
I tried taking ownership of the file and changing permissions, but nothing worked. I tried a bunch of solutions I found on google, but so far nothing worked. I have an "Account unknown" on the file's permissions (suppose is the old laptop account) but I can't remove it.

Is there any way to solve this? Or are those files lost?

Answer:File - Access Denied

unlocker sometimes gets around these permissions errors without forcing you to do it the long way, and it's a tiny app.

Question: File access denied

Hi all,I got a USB HDD which contains a hundred GB data of my old PC which was running windows XP.When I plugged this USB HDD to windows 7 and tried to copy a document from this HDD, an error message poped up, saying the file could not be accessed because I did not have the permission to do it.The file name of the document was green in color, but for other files that I could access, their file names were black in color.I have changed to login as administrator in windows 7 but I still could not open the document."File Access Denied or Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected because the file is already in use by other program or user".Please help if you could.Thank youKitty

Answer:File access denied

I suspect the key to why the issue is arising is due to the fact the file in question was created in XP and now it is being presented in a Win 7 environment . Presuming that so were the other 100gb of the files then as to why it is only effecting that one file will require someone with more in depth knowledge than i on the subject. However doing some research on the subject the site i am going to list seems to present an understanding of the phenomenon that is quite clear and does explain a method to access the file. So give it a look and see if it will help you and report back if you solve it or need additional assistance.http://www.blogsdna.com/2159/how-to-take-ownership-grant-permissions-to-access-files-folder-in-windows-7.htmtruenorth

I had an older PC running windows 10 which was installed on an old HDD. I finally picked up a SSD for it. I opted for a clean install of Windows 10 on the SSD. Everything seemed to go okay until I tried to access anything but what Windows installed.

Every folder, file, etc I don't have permission to access. It doesn't matter if it was a Windows folder on the old drive or a folder of music on drive. I have never had this issue before after doing a new install. Usually I can just connect the old drives and access them without issues.

I found the Take Ownership context menu install which seems to fix these issues, but it seems I have to do it on everything so I am hoping there is a better fix. I tried changing the security on the drives, but they are stuck in Read Only.

Answer:New install now no permission to access any file or folders old drives

Put it in a either a SATA to USB 3.0 or USB exernal case, you should be able to read it then unless your using some sort of encryption bit locker or similar

I am running on windows 10 and recently upgraded from windows 7. After having alot of problems with my files being read-only after the upgrade I decided to look at the security permissions and somehow accidentally removed myself as an owner to C:\ (I am the admin user) Clicking on C:\ results in access denied, going into advanced properties of the drive and trying to change any security setting results in the window freezing up for a while then saying access denied, no editor control.
I have tried going through command prompt in safe mode and entering NET USER Administrator /active:yes, NET STOP ProfSvc, access is still denied even in the command prompt on the new administrator user.
I have no idea what to do anymore, I've searched the internet for solutions and found nothing.

Hi guys,

After I was having major issues with my PC which is running XP and Outlook 2003. I'm trying to import the email archive into Outlook 2003 on my laptop which is running Windows 7 and Outlook 2003 settings are the same and working. I can only access my PC in "Safe Mode", so while in there I created an archive PST file, saved it to USB and then saved onto my Laptop hard drive. From my Laptop I go into Outlook and go to File>Outlook Data File, and then select the PST file, but I get the following message:

"File access denied. You do not have permission required to access the file C:\path.....

I right clicked the file and went to "properties" but "read only" isn't checked.

Some help?

Thanks
