Network / Sharing :: Files Transferred - Get Access Denied When Modifying

Mar 19, 2014

Alright, so I just recently got a new computer that has Windows 8.1, compared to my old one having Windows 7. I tried to transfer all of the files/folders over to the new one over the network and everything worked just fine. However, whenever I tried to modify any of the files that were transferred from the old one such as a png or txt file and overwrite the original through the program, I was always given an error box that said "access denied."

I'm pretty sure this is meaning that I need to get administrator privileges from the old PC, but I'm not sure how I would do that. My only option is to save the version to another folder then move it to where the original one was.

Network / Sharing :: Access Denied To Own Files In Windows 8

Sep 20, 2013

My new laptop that runs the despicable OS, Windows 8. I'm the ONLY user, the owner AND Administrator of my laptop, but I'm denied access to my own files!! I'm only a casual user, meaning I use my PC for "fun stuff"...i.e. writing & reading emails; playing games & searching the internet for things that interest me. I don't have anything on my PC that has to be "guarded" from others, as NO ONE ELSE uses my PC. That said, I should be able to access EVERYTHING on my PC, but the paranoid screwballs at Micro$oft have set up the most confounding OS, & I'm repeatedly denied accessing things like: Program Files, Pictures (even though I'm the one who put them there!!), Properties, etc. etc.

I know I'm not the only one who's been confronted with these problems, as I've read the same things repeated on sites in the many places I've visited in my attempt to figure out how to break the chains that Micro$oft has put on MY PC. How to change the settings so I can access my own stuff? I don't understand why MY computer is given the authority to DENY ME access to stuff I entered myself. When I couldn't view my OWN Pictures, (that I put here!!!), How I can use my own PC the way I want the "good old days" of XP & even Vista HP?

Network / Sharing :: Denied Access To Own Files On Computer In 8?

Sep 5, 2013

I'm running Windows 8, (unfortunately), & I can't access certain files even though I'm the only one who uses this laptop & I'm also the Administrator. I tried numerous times to allow file sharing & change what I thought I should, but I kept getting red-lettered statements saying that I'm not allowed to make such changes.what steps to take so I can get to the files I need. There's no reason why I should be denied access to do anything when it's my own computer!

Network / Sharing :: Destination Folder Access Denied - Windows 8

Sep 9, 2013

We just purchased a new office computer and it came equipped with windows 8. Everything seemed to set up wonderfully as I connected back up to the server we have here in the office that is running Windows 2008 Server. I set up my printers, I mapped the network drives I needed.

The problem I am having is that the mapped drives seemed to be "read-only." I can view and open all files, but I cannot save or create new folders on the drive. I have not changed anything on the server, as far as user settings or permissions because everything was working smooth on the former computer that ran WinXP.

I have checked the "manage your credentials" to ensure I have the proper Windows Credentials loaded. Below you will see a screen shot of what I keep running into.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 Laptop - Samba Shares Access Denied

Jun 18, 2013

I've recently made the move to 8 on my laptop and actually really like it. Now I've got an ubuntu 13.04 server with some samba shares set up that are completely visible on my Windows 8 laptop but when I try to access them I get Access Denied and it asks for my credentials again. I'm 1000% sure the details are correct, and I'm also sure it's a client side issue. I say this because there are 2 other PC's in my household, a win7 laptop and win7 desktop, both of which can access the shares when supplying the same credentials I do for my Windows 8 laptop.

Network / Sharing :: Unable To Print On 1018 Printer - Getting Access Denied Error?

May 17, 2014

In continuation to my previous thread on this subject, I now have another network printer problem in the same system. I chose to open it in a separate thread because the previous one became too long.I have 3 PCs on my home network

1. Windows XP (SP3) desktop with HP6500 E709a USB printer.

2. Windows 7 (Ultimate SP1 64 bit) desktop with HP 1018 USB printer.

3. Windows 8 (64 bit) laptop.

All computers can see each other and share folders on the home network.

Computers 1 & 2 can freely print on their own printers, as well as on each other's printer. Computer 3 (Windows 8) can print on the HP6500 (which is connected to the XP computer), but cannot print on the 1018 printer connected to the Win7 computer.

I know that on the Windows 8 laptop I have to define a local port for the network printer, but when I try to do it I get "Access denied" error message. Win7 denies access from Windows 8. This is strange, because Win7 does allow access to XP. On the WIN7 computer, under printer properties/security, print permission is granted to "Everyone".

So what could be the reason for the "Access denied" error? I guess it has to do with security / users / permissions, but I cannot find a solution.

Access Is Denied In Program Files?

Nov 4, 2013

For some reason I cannot do anything in my Program Files for one of my hard drives. My C drive seems to be fine, as well as my 2 other drives. But in my F drive, Ive broken down the program files into a normal one and x86 one. I can basically access every other folder expect the Program Files in F drive. Program Files (x86) in the same drive works perfectly fine. Everytime i try to add a new folder or delete anything in my Program Files folder it says destination folder access denied and i need permission.

Ive tried fiddling with all the UAC and permissions but nothing seems to work.I even tried the command prompt :

"4. To Take Ownership of a Folder or Drive in a Command Prompt. NOTE: This command will take ownership of the folder or drive, and all files and subfolders in the folder or drive."

method but it says Access is Denied in my command prompt.

Access Denied In Accessing Folders / Files On External HDD

Sep 10, 2013

I have this annoying problem that just showed up recently since I've changed/upgraded laptops the past week.

I can't seem to access or rather run the files on certain folders for my portable drive. I've already changed permissions and made myself owner for the files but it seems it won't accept it and it's giving me off an error still saying that access is denied.

I've searched high and low on how to solve this but nothing seems to work.

- I tried the registry trick to "Take Ownership" and it didn't work
- Also tried various (advanced)security settings to allow/deny etc. No dice.

**Last option would be to reformat my portable drive and then just recover the emails again, will the permissions/ownership reset if I try to format the drive? Since deleting them is out of the option since I don't have "permission" for those folders/files.

Network / Sharing :: Not Access Shared Files From LAN

Feb 20, 2014

I am struggling with my windows 8.1 and the network settings for the last 2 months. However, I still can not access my shared files from my lan network. There is always a login username/password requested in order to join but It never let me join and see the files. If I input any random wrong login username/password it reports an error. Hence, for some reason the authentication part is successful and something else is wrong. This is maybe a windows 8.1 problem on some restrictions etc.

Actions done till now... Change permissions - added almost everything (users, guests, user, administrator, everyone) set workgroup to name "domain" or "WORKGROUP" or "HOME" homegroup only works for windows7!! Remove the password request check from the network settings

Shared files included in Windows 8.1 Trying to access the files from windows xp, windows 7, linux, android, tv media box...

I will probably add some screenshots soon..

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 - Homegroup And No Access To Files

Jul 5, 2013

I have a desktop and a laptop both running Windows 8 and are both members of the homegroup. In File explorer both machines can see the other in the homegroup but when I double click I get a message (on either machine) "This PC is currently unavailable". This has only been a problem since using 8. When I was all windows 7 the homegroup worked perfectly. Both machines have been set up to share everything including the kitchen sink. I must have a setting wrong somewhere. This used to be an intermittent thing. When I had my old desktop (also windows 8) other homegroup machines could occasionally see the desktop but sometimes not!! I have a BT router that on an individual basis works fine. All machines are using the wi fi on the router.

Network / Sharing :: Unable To Access Files Within Skydrive On Win 8.1

Nov 18, 2013

I'm having a pretty major issue with Skydrive on Windows 8.1. A vast majority of my files are unopenable from Explorer (or the Modern UI app which seems to just open them through explorer in the end anyway). When I try to open one of these files, I receive an error message titled "1 Interrupted Action" and displaying the message:

An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search to solve this problem.

Error 0x80040A41: No error description available

I have yet to find anything even resembling a solution when I search for that error code. The options this error window gives me is to "Try Again" which presents a typical explorer progress bar that never goes anywhere or to "skip" or "cancel" which do the same thing. Essentially this means that I have to use the skydrive web client to download the file to some other location locally and then edit and reupload from there. As far as I can tell there also isn't a traceable logic to what files are going to be accessible and which ones are not. I could literally be just finished working on a file, save it, and have it inaccessible when I try to reopen it. This error has not improved or changed at all by my making any files "available offline" or "available online-only" (in fact clicking those options doesn't seem to actually change their Availability that is listed in explorer).

I've used Skydrive for a few years now (since the beta I believe) as my primary cloud storage service, I pay for Office 365, and therefore I have access to a larger amount of storage on Skydrive than I do on other cloud services. I'm using Google Drive temporarily, but its incredibly inconvenient given how invested and reliant I've become to Skydrive.

Any way of resetting or jarring Skydrive on 8.1?

Network / Sharing :: Access Skydrive Files In Explorer Without App

Jul 25, 2013

Ive been using a method to access my Skydrive files in explorer without the need for the Skydrive app. The process is explained here: How To Map SkyDrive Folder As Network Drive In Windows 8 And RT .

It works great on 1 pc I use but on another it doesn't. The problem is it is only showing the Public folder and nothing else. I cant work out why this is the case.

It accepts my credentials fine and connects the drive it just doesn't show the files there. It also doesn't allow me to upload anything else to the drive.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 - Can't Access Files On Own Drive

Dec 20, 2013

Everything I can find to get round this problem involves right clicking on the HD->properties->Security->Owner and then going on to changing a few settings.

There is no owner tab! Is this an 8.1 thing? Have they removed it? Van I get it back?

Network / Sharing :: HomeGroup - Can't Access PC Files From Laptop

Jul 31, 2013

2 days ago, I bought a laptop with Windows 8, as I wanted something more portable to carry with me.

I decided to set up a HomeGroup, so I could transfer files from my old computer with ease. However, that doesn't appear to be working.

I can connect to my laptop with my old computer(see screenshot below)

However, I am unable to access my PC files from my laptop(see screenshot below)

It just blocks me out - I can't open it.

I'm absolutely positive all the settings match. I've tried to create the homegroup on both my laptop and my computer, but have got the same result.

Network / Sharing :: When Log On To HTPC From Desktop - Unable To Access The Files

Mar 1, 2013

On my home network, I have my desktop, my HTPC (wired) and my wife's laptop (Wifi). The desktop and HTPC are bth running Win 8 pro. The laptop is running Win 7. All are 64 it.

Invariably I try to log onto my HTPC from my desktop and it says that I am unable to access the files. I then open up network and sharing center to check on the network password only to find that is has changed itself somehow. Even after I reset the password on both the HTPC and the desktop. I still cannot access my shared files on the HTPC from the desktop. The only way to share files is to get them from the HTPC which for some reason lets me access my desktop files.

The laptop is not really an issue. ONce I enter the new password I can access files on the desktop and print no problem. I guess the 2 issues are...

1) the random changing of the network password
2) the inability to access networked files FROM the desktop. The reverse seems to work flawlessly.....

Lost Files When Transferred From Windows 7

Apr 21, 2013

When I transferred from Windows 7, I lost some (very important) personal files. I have searched and tried a few different things and the best I can find is to run a file recovery software which I'm hoping to avoid. I'm running Windows 8 off a Toshiba that so far I have loved but am quickly starting to regret switching to 8.

Windows 8.1 - Transferred Files / Can't Turn Off Read Only

I have windows 8.1 on a computer I am just trying to start using. However, when I transfer any of my personal files from the old computer they all end up as read-only.

Access Is Denied When Trying To Edit INI File

May 19, 2013

So I use a program called crashplan to back up all my data, but the program began crashing whenever I open it. I would open it, the program would bgin running for a few seconds to a minute then just go away, close with no message.

SO I emailed crashplan and they told me to do this:

It appears that the CrashPlan backup engine is running out of memory. Please follow the instructions below to allocate more memory to the CrashPlan backup engine. Running Notepad or any other text-editor as an Admin, edit the CrashPlan engine's CrashPlanService.ini file to allow it to use more java memory:

1- Stop the backup engine: [URL] .....
2- Locate the Notepad program, right-click and Launch as Administrator
3- Go to File > Open, and navigate to C:Program FilesCrashPlanCrashPlanService.ini (note that you will have to change the option from .txt files to all files in the file selection screen in order to see the CrashPlanService.ini)
4- Find the following line in the file: -Xmx512m
5- Edit to something larger such as 768, 896, or 1024. E.g.: -Xmx1024m

This sets the maximum amount of memory that CrashPlan can use. CrashPlan will not use that much until it needs it. I would recommend starting out setting it to 768, and go higher only if you continue experiencing problems. You can set it as high as 2048 on 32-bit systems, or even higher on 64-bit systems. 6- Start the backup engine.

So I tried it but I couldn't save it, I got an error message that said "Access is Denied".

Access Denied For Printer On HP Laptop

Jan 22, 2013

I have two laptops, Lenova with Windows 8 and HP Pavilion with Windows 8 pro. I have a HP Officejet 7560 hooked up to the Lenova.

When I try to access the printer from the HP, it can see the printer, but in trying to connect, Windows is telling me access denied.

If I hookup the printer to the HP, the Lenova can see it, connect to it and print to it just fine.

I have checked all the sharing and permissions settings on my Lenova, and everything should be set to allow another computer to access the printer, but it is still giving me the same message.

The Printer drivers are all up-to-date. I ran DriverScanner 2013

E Drive Not Accessible - Access Is Denied

Aug 25, 2013

I originally had a RAID 1 and windows 8 pro 64 bit installed. I had a boot error and could no longer boot into windows. I purchased two new HDDs and created a RAID 1. Loaded Windows 8 Pro with no problem. Then I added the original two HDD so as to retrieve data. I went into the RAID BIOS and took the old HDD off RAID configuration. I then disconnected one of the original RAID HDD and now have only one of the old HDD connected to the motherboard.

In Disk Management, the disk I am trying to access is listed as DISK 1 and divided into System Reserved (D, 350 MB NTFS, Healthy (Active , Primary Partition) and (E 931.17 GB NTFS, Healthy (Primary Partition). But when I try to access the E: drive, I receive the following "E: is not accessible. Access is denied."

Any way to getting access to E: I would like to retrieve data.

Win 8 Inheriting Permissions Causes ACCESS DENIED With Folders

Mar 5, 2012

Manage Permission Inheritance in Windows 8 | VISHY Media on technologies and gadgets

Ever get this message or worse, one that does not have the access button attached? you cannot read it, you cannot look at it and you cannot delete it.

There are even worse issues where the permissions are GREYED OUT and you cannot do anything to them. (see below for a solution)

Windows 8 Consumer Preview has a robust permissions scheme that is more geared towards business users rather than err, consumers. An inherited permission means that Windows 8 set the Permissions on a volume, drive, or folder, that same set of permissions will be applied to all folders underneath it.

The solution is to ENABLE INHERITANCE to the volume drive or folder to gain access:

Another solution is to ADD a group called Everyone and give them full control:

Finally, there will be folders where everything is GREYED out in the permissions tab so it seems to be impossible to make changes. EDIT: Check below to see possible solution!

This REALLY sucks and the only solution I have found is a reg hack called "Take Ownership"

Add "Take Ownership" to Explorer Right-Click Menu in Win 7 or Vista - How-To Geek

Install the reg (right click and install) then right click on the folder or drive and select Take Ownership. That will allow you to go back into permissions and select full read/write controls by users.
