When Create File In C Drive It Throws Access Violation Error?
Mar 29, 2014
I am facing several weird problems in my Windows 8.1 installation. My first problem is that when I try to copy/create a file to my C: drive it throws an access violation error.
But this not the case if I copy/create a file in any of sub directories in C:. For example I can copy/create files to system32 or program files with any such problems.
My second problem is that I no longer get a popup when I connect a external HDD to my system. It doesn't even show up in "My Computer" I have to open up disk management and then assign a drive letter to the external HDD then only will it show up in File Explorer.
I purchased a new SSD drive for running windows 8, while installing I unplugged all of my other drives in my machine including a WD 2TB drive I use for files. I cannot seem to get the Windows 8 installation to be able to access the drive when I select it it says "F: is not accessible. Access is denied" after following the instructions below. The drive is recognized by the machine still, I just cannot access it from this Windows 8 partition?
"Access Denied" or other errors when accessing or working with files and folders in Windows

I own an Asus laptop with pre-installed Windows 8.1 and, after downloading & installing recent Windows updates (20th of September 2014, if memory serves me correctly), I am unable to access desktop because system freezes at boot sequence returning me this error: "Secure Boot Violation. Invalid signature detected. Check Secure Boot Policy in Setup" printed inside a small red box.
After googling around, someone suggested to disable "Secure Boot" from BIOS and enable "Launch CSM". I performed such operations but I got no results (BIOS menu automatically appears after every reboot). Someone else suggested to change boot sequence and start system from a Recovery CD but I got no CD supplied with my laptop as Asus stopped providing CDs from very long time AFAIK.
I am quite sure problem relies on Windows Updates because I used this Laptop very little times and no p2p or hacked programs are installed. In addition to that, as far as I read, it seems other Win users experienced the same issue after installing WinUpdates but they have different BIOS so is not easy for me to understand my BIOS accordingly to what they do in their own BIOS in order to solve issue.
What annoys me most is that I bought this Laptop in July 2014 and, just three months later, it got freezes because of official Windows Updates and not because of bad behaviour of user.
I recently installed Windows 8.1 from scratch. After installing Office 2013, I'm getting this error when launching Word: "Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable." If I try to create a new spreadsheet in Excel, I get this error: "Microsoft Excel cannot open or save any more documents because there is not enough available memory or disk space." Memory and disk space are plentiful and definitely not the problem here.
Also, I can't save or open files downloaded with Internet Explorer, which I believe is related (explained below).
I tried running winword.exe /r and re-installing Office, but the problem remains.
I've verified that HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerUser Shell Folders is set to %USERPROFILE%AppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsINetCache in the Registry.
Research seems to indicate that the Temporary Internet Files location in Internet Explorer (!) is the likely cause of the problem. Internet Explorer shows the Current location field of Temporary Internet Folders is blank.
I've tried changing/setting the Temporary Internet Files folder to both C:UsersProfileNameAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsINetCache and C:UsersProfileNameAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsTemporary Internet Files, but I get this error: "Windows is unable to gather information about the location you have chosen. Please select another, or verify that you have access rights to the location." I'm running an Administrator account.
If I try to open either of those folders in Explorer, I get this error: "C:UsersProfileNameAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsINetCache is not accessible. Access is denied."
I've tried Taking Ownership of both folders. I've tried removing the Read-Only flag from both folders. I've tried editing the security permissions and adding my specific profile name (Administrators is already there). I still can't access those folders.
I'm in the process of moving to an SSD and need to create a backup drive in order to repair the BIOS after transferring everything. However, when I try to create one - the create a recovery drive program won't recognize the flash drive I have connected as a flash drive.
I first tried with a SanDisk Cruzer which apparently had a quirk in that it shows up as a hard drive instead of removable flash drive. That seems to be well documented on forums all over the place and there is no fix.
So, I purchased a cheap 8 GB stick (no brand) and Windows (I'm running 8.1 x64) recognizes it as a removable disk. However, the create a backup utility still won't recognize it. I've found some random fixes that have worked for some (such as plugging it into a different USB port) but nothing has worked for me so far. I've tried doing it with the "copy the recovery partition" option both checked and unchecked.
If there's no solution to this wonderful "quirk" of Windows, then is there something else I can do to repair BIOS? Seems like there's not a fix to my problem out there...
EDIT So as of right now, I tried using HPs recovery software which seems to do the same thing as copying over your entire recovery partition. That didn't work either. However..when I had both USB sticks plugged in the Windows supplied utility recognized the SanDisk Cruzer when I checked the "copy the partition" thing
Since 2 days ago I've noticed that I cannot create a new folder with File Explorer by any way possible. Using the taskbar or the SHIFT + Ctrl + N. Even when saving projects with Save File as... and trying to use the "New Folder" text string button does not create any folder. Using CMD prompt or powershell all works well as with Total Commander which i only installed to see if it could create folders and it does. Other programs that auto create folders also works well (i.e. Foobar when transcoding to new unavailable folder). My Windows 8 Pro is original, it's a 4 month old install, I've not made any customizations, no registry hacks, Windows is bare apart from Classic Shell which i only use now as a custom button to go to start screen with the mouse. I also made a custom High Contrast Theme that i use at night or when eyes are a bit tired. It's 2 months old so it's there long before the problem.I've not installed any new programs in the last week apart from some updates from FileZilla, Foxit pdf and Notepad++.Last system update is COPICOM from 13 July.I followed this guide which as not resolved the problem: I cannot find a way to create a new folder in Windows 8. -
- Changed name to Connec8 - Compiled as exe. This is for the sole purpose to force Administrator privileges on double click - New icon - Administrator privilege check on startup. - Added option to restart the previous hotspot - Implemented an easier way to enable Internet sharing - Added blank lines for better readability

Windows 8 is awesome. However it doesn't have the ability to create ad-hoc networks from Network and sharing center. The only way is to use netsh utility from CMD every time you want to start or stop your network. .
So I created a batch file to automate this process. All you have to do is to start it as administrator, follow the instructions and voila!. No need to open cmd again and again
This utility creates an adhoc network. You can use it for streaming Videos and Music or playing LAN games.
For Internet sharing aka Hotspot Go to Network and Sharing Center –> Change adapter settings Right click on the device which is connected to internet and select Proerties Now, open Sharing tab, enable Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection, and then choose the newly created ad-hoc connection from the list
so one of my computers entered a boot loop and I'm pretty sure the only way to fix it is using a recovery drive. Only problem is the only other windows 8 PC in the house doesnt let me create it. I go through the steps outlined in this thread: Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8 but i get stuck on step 6. When I insert a USB drive the create recovery drive setup doesnt seem to recognize it. It just refreshes (which shows that it detects a usb being inserted) but nothing shows up. Oddly enough, I can access the usb drive through my computer and copying/moving etc files still works. How can I make it so it appears?
I have a segate 1TB external HDD and right now I barely have anything stored on it. Well, just now when i tried creating a new folder i keep getting error code 0x08000FFFF! What the hell?! This HDD is not even 2 months old! Is it curtains for the drive? Or is there some action I can take?
I keep getting this error when I try to create or delete a folder. I also cannot use applications which create temporary folder such as WinRAR.
The error says this: "An unexpected error is keeping you from creating the folder. If you continue receive this error, you can use the error code to search for solution of this problem. Error 0x80070570: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."
I tried all the possible options to solve this problem except for reinstalling the Windows.
I would like to make a flash drive bootable and I have looked at the utility that HP has called USB Disk Storage Format Tool and every place I have looked to find how to install and use it, the instructions that I have seen do not show up for me when I run the program. Where I can get some good instructions on how to create the flash drive.
I just bought Asus UX31A-R4005H (with Windows 8). Unfortunately Asus doesn't provide any application to restore Windows 8 back to factory conditions. So i need to recovery whole hard drive partitions back to factory settings.
Firstly i need to create a set of OEM factory recovery discs/usb flash.
1. I'm planning to create a system recovery drive (usb flash) with Windows 8 but i wonder if this usb flash will recover whole hdd back to factory conditions? If yes is it enough to use Windows 8 "create a recovery drive" option?
2. How could i create an original OEM factory recovery usb flash with 3rd party application?
When I first got this PC, I made the Recovery DVDs as instructed. Now, I want to make a Recovery Flash Drive, but HP only allows creation of one Recovery item. Is there a way to create a Recovery flash drive after I've already made DVDs?
I have just upgraded to 8 using my 7 settings on a couple of my machines. Is it possible to put back the original 7 SSD drive - clone it to a spare drive and then create the VM set up on that cloned drive using the upgraded drive? I would of course remove the original 7 drive and just use the clone.
I'll just get an OEM 8 to install if what I have cannot be done.
I have upgraded my Windows 8 PC to 8.1 yesterday and it seemed like everything is working fine until I tried to create System Image. I got an error 0x80780119 saying that there is to little space on one of the partitions.
I started looking into this problem and indeed one of the partitions does not meet the requirements. There are following partitions on my drive:
Partition 1 has only 13MB free space. Partition 2 has 70MB free space, partition 3 is MSFTRES, partition 4 is my C drive with around 35GB free and partition 5 is not included in system image. Partitions were create like this during installation of Windows 8 - clean install from scratch. I am using UEFI so the drive is GPT formatted.
So I thought, OK I can resize my C drive a little, move the partitions and expand the 1st one. I tried using GParted but it is not able to move the MSFTRES partition. It does not recognize the file system on it.
So the question is: Is it possible to "clean up" the 1st partition in anyway? If not, is there anything special about MSFTRES partition? Or can I just remove it and create it a little further and just flag it as msftres with GParted?
I recently bought a Dell Windows 8 desktop. I upgraded the desktop to Windows 8.1. I want to create a recovery drive using a DVD rather than a flash drive. (I understand Microsoft wants you to create recovery onto a flash drive rather than a DVD. Not sure why.)
I found several places on the net which discuss just how create recover onto a DVD. They suggest that I do a search on "Windows 7 file" and this will display an option to click on "Windows 7 File Recovery" ... and that will lead me through the steps to create my recovery onto a DVD.
Problem is "Windows 7 File" is not found. How do I get this onto my Windows 8.1 system?
I have just recently got done building my computer my self back in mid February and installed Windows 8.1 on it. Shortly after getting done installing everything else when it started to given me the BSOD just be for it got to the log in screen. I have tried every thing Including wiping it and reinstalling windows. At first It would let me in after a restart or two but now it won't let me in at all unless I'm in safe mode. I
I have a number of different drives that I use for different purposes but I only use two of them frequently.I would like for the others to enter sleep mode when not in use, but never my main two. Is there any way to edit power saving settings for individual drives?

All other devices that are connecting to my virtual hostednetwork are working without any problems expect my pc. What have i missed that my PC where virtual hostednetwork is running cannot see devices in "virtual" network without internet access?
I've installed win 8 consumer release not long ago, and the windows keep crash from time to time with and says to search for dpc watchdog violation for more info.
Aafter the PC is restarting it says that the problem was with memory.dmp.
At the beginning it happened once in a few weeks so I didn't care but now it happens more often which in not good! before the crash itself happens the PC freeze and make some weird buzz-like sound, sometime it keeps working after but sometime it crash.
