Write Access for a folder on Windows 8 computer

Q: Write Access for a folder on Windows 8 computer

I have a Windows 8 computer and a Windows Vista laptop. Both computers are connected to my network. I Have a portable hard drive attached to the Windows 8 computer. I can read the files on the portable hard drive from the Vista computer but I can't copy to them or download to them. When I try to drag a file from the Vista Computer to the Windows 8 computer it says I need permission to perform this action. I think I have the settings correct. I have file and printer sharing turned on. I am running Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 but even with that disabled I still can't copy to the Windows 8 computer. Can anyone help??? Thanks in advance for everyone's help!!

Preferred Solution: Write Access for a folder on Windows 8 computer

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.)

Up until recently I was able to import cds onto itunes with no problem - now it says I do not have write access to the music folder and also no access privileges. I have recently changed my internet browser from ie7 to safari - would that have anything to do with it? I have tried enabling sharing on all music folders but nothing seems to work.

A:can i block a program to write access to a specific folder ?

This may sound stupid, but what happens if you just delete that \Video\ folder? Does it get recerated? If not, that may be the easy fix. If not, you can try changing permissions for that one folder.

Not sure what's going on here or how to fix it. I've tried every workaround I can find, and nothing works. It's a folder in my Steam directory, and even when I try to manipulate it as an administrator I can't even read access it. I also can't see permissions
on it, so I can't change those or take ownership, either.

I really need to fix this. Any ideas?

I have a simple question to which I cannot get a simple answer.

I went to My Computer (XP), double clicked on my MP3 Player drive icon,
double clicked on the Internet Storage icon and then came to several folders, including the Music folder. I double clicked on Music folder and several sub folders came to the screen including a PLAYLISTS FOLDER. The problem is that the Playlists folder has several files which I did NOT create, labelled Playlist (1), (2) and (3).

I deleted Playlist (1) with no problem, however, when I went to delete Playlist (2) and Playlist (3) a message came up that it:

" cannot be deleted because it is write protected. Remove the write protection".

Another terrific Microsoft message which doesn't tell you what to do, which is why I will shortly install Linux on my computer.

I tried to get help in the "help" file, which is generally useless. It is not even listed in the glossary under "write protection" how to do this.

I went to the "help" file in Microsoft Word. It says to select the tools menu and click the option which says remove write protection. The only problem, is that this seems to only apply to this word processor, because when I click "tools" on the menu above the above folder opened in My Computer, there is no such option.

I clicked on "properties" for the folder.....no option there either.

Is there someone out there who can instruct me how to perform this simple task, ... Read more

A:How do I remove "write protection" from a sub folder on a drive in My Computer?

Well...what you describe is unusual...and Microsoft has nothing to do with the manner in which a manufacturer sets up the native folders on an .mp3 player.

My experience with such folders (any and all) is that they are deleteable, like any other file.

If the folders cannot be deleted in either normal or safe mode...I would simply do firmware update. Should be avaiable at website of player maker.

You could also try a product like Revo Uninstaller.

You could also entertain the idea that...the folders may be viewed that way because of some problem with the drive (such as bad sectors) and try to run the chkdsk /r command on the player from My Computer/Properties.

I am dealing with a school right now that I got hired to come in and help with some computer issues...they are having a lot of problems with students installing software and downloading things from the internet and writing them to the HDD.

They are running Windows XP Professional. I thought of denying write access locally to the entire C: Drive, but they are using roaming profiles which means that the download of their profile from the server to C:/documents and settings would be denied. If I used a group policy for the student users, the same would happen. Write access to Documents and Settings is denied.

Also, I thought of denying access to write on the C drive and then allowing just the documents and settings folder, but the DENY is inherited in all sub directories and cannot be changed for certain directories.

Any ideas of something I can do? Has anyone dealt with simular issues?
Thanks.

Hello!
English is not my first languaje, i will do my best.

A client has a computer running Windows 10 Pro that shares a folder to be accesible from MS-DOS based machines (i have no control from them). The MS-DOS program asks for user and password and gets connection to the folder.

The Windows 10 machine was not enought fast, and we decide to change it to a better machine (new machine with i3cpu, 16gb Ram, Windows 7 Pro 64bits).
I setup all configuration the same as was in the old computer:
- computer name
- Workgroup
- user and password
- static ip adress and DNS
- folder shared name (this is in a secondary hdd, moved from old computer to the new)...

Computers with Windows 7 and Windows XP in the same network have Access instantly, all works fine,
but the MS-DOS based machines says: "wrong password" (and is not).

Surfing in the web I found that:
http://ss64.com/nt/syntax-ntlm.HTML

I have setup Windows LAN Manager authentication level to Send LM and NTLM Responses, but the result is the same.


I don't know where is the mistake. Has anyone any idea how can i solve that problem?

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??

Hello. I have a folder share on my Windows 7 computer and I was trying to access it with a Windows XP Home computer in the house. However, I kept getting an "Access Denied" error whenever I tried to write to the folder. How can I fix this?

Also, sometimes when accessing .zip files and .exe fines from one XP Home computer to another XP Home computer, I get a "Unspecified security risk" and "Access denied" error respectively. How do I fix this?
 

A:Access Denied error when trying access Windows 7 folder from Windows XP

multiple levels of controls here

the XP needs the LLTP service from SP3 to be able to share w/ win7

there are two layers of access for share resources:

the network access
the NTFS access
The simplest solution is to use Simple Sharing and share via the All Users\Shared Documents\ directory. The Admin can set Allow Modifications (or not as needed),
which create the NTFS perms for the <Everyone> group.

So, *IF* you have network access (you can see the shared folder and it's contents),
then the NTFS permissions are the controlling factor.

IF not, the the network access is in control and you need to figure out Simple Sharing vs not-so-simple and those requirements

Hello there,

Today I decided to reformat my laptop after it started to run slow. I backed up all my important folders onto an external hard drive and copied them back onto my fresh hard drive. Everything was fine until I tried to access one folder that I had shared on my previous account. It said that I did not have permission to access any file, but I cannot give myself permission because I reformatted my computer. I tried to go into the properties and give myself permission but it keeps telling me that I can't do it and I need the owner's permission. Is there anyway I can access these files or did I screw myself by not realizing I needed to give permission before reformatting?

When I try to access it, Windows Explorer shuts down,the desktop comes back, and I am able to continue using the computer. It does not seem to be affecting any other computer function. There appears to be only one way to see the contents of the Fonts folder: In Windows Explorer, I can select (but not open) the Fonts folder in its location in C/Windows/Fonts. I then do an all-inclusive Search within Fonts, and the Search results give me the contents of the Fonts folder. Using this method only, I can see what's inside the fonts folder. Double-clicking on it or trying to open it in any other way results in the crash above.


Using the Search method I described above to view the contents of the Fonts folder, I have tried to replace its entire contents of the Fonts folder with a backup of all my fonts.  I was able to do the replacement, but the problem continues to occur.  I have tried restarting in Safe Mode, doing an sfc /scannow scan, scanning windows using Norton Systemworks, deleting the Fonts folder (it will not let me under any circumstances), and finally re-installing Windows XP.  I did not try a clean re-install because I did not want to lose my settin...

A:HELP! Fonts folder causing Windows Explorer to crash - cannot access Fonts folder.

I wonder if it's a memory (RAM) issue?  How much memory do you have?  If you have less than 256Mb, consider upgrading to a least 256 and even 512 is a better amount for Windows XP.    Space available for disk "virtural" memory could also be an issue.  You didn't list your PC model or any specs so no one can specifically address the issue with your specific hardware.
The fonts folder can become very large and it could be causing the problem, if no other folder or nothing else you do with the Windows Explorer causes it to crash. 
Reinstalling Windows XP over it'self it not really a "fix".  If there is an XP problem ultimately the only way to permanently fix it is to do a full "clean" restore.  You should have your user data backed up periodically anyway - it's not in case you have to reinstall, it's for "when" you have to reinstall.

I am able to read but not able to write on shared folder from Windows 7, however i was able to do the same from Windows XP compture.

I have following setup:

1) Shared Folder is on Windows 2003 server on same workgroup and network. Private network
2) Accessing Shared Folder resides in Windows 2003 server from Windows 7 Premium. Can read folder but cannot write anything to the folder

I made sure that folder has access to "Everyone" - read and write on shared folder on windows 2003 server. Drive is not full.

I am getting message on Windows 7 compture that "You need permission to perform this action"

I am pulling my hair off with this issue. Seems like it is small issue but not able to resolve.

Thanks in Advance

I'm having no luck making a Windows 7 folder write accessible to XP. I've turned off password protected sharing and given both "Everyone" and "Guest" read/write permission. I can access the folder, but whenever I try to transfer a file to it, I get:

"Error Copying File or Folder - Cannot copy ____: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."

Any suggestions?

I am trying to write to this folder as I need to replace 2 drivers with more updated versions. I am running as Admin and I have the UAC set to Never Notify. I right click on the folder and uncheck read only. Then I go to the Security tab and attempt to edit the permissions. However even as Admin the buttons to add and edit permissions are "Ghosted Out".

I don't have any kind of burning software, and am forced to rely on Windows XP's built in Write-to-CD software. The problem is, even with a rewritable CD drive, re-writable DVD drive, and re-writable CD's and DVD's, any material I put on them with the built in Windows XP writing software, becomes write-protected, making it impossible not only to remove the material at a later date, but also to add anything to it. A CD can have over 675 mb of free space that is absolutely inaccessible because of this problem.

Is there any way to reformat these CD's or otherwise remove the write-protect on them? Some of the data on these CD's is not the kind I'd like anyone else to see, meaning that if they are absolutely absolutely ***ABSOLUTELY*** untouchable forever and ever and ever, I would be forced to destroy them altogether (likely breaking them in half or something) and dispose of them as trash (environmentally unsound or not) rather than submit them to a recycling center and risk some noseybody reading what's on them before recycling them.

All CD's are read-only and the contents cannot be changed. Some use packet-writing, but those only erase the previous version and write a new one, so they can't be changed, either. Space is less and gets used quickly.

The best way to have read/write access to data is to use an external USB drive or thumb drive.

It is best to stick with the standard ISO format. Save all your changes to a folder untill you are ready to burn the final copies to CD.

Hi I have a Windows program that is installed in the default C:\Program Files (x86) folder, and of course it cannot write some of the data it needs to write to that folder. I assume that is because of the Windows 7 permissions.
Is there a simple way to allow this particular program to write to its install folder despite permission restrictions? I already moved its data folder to my data partition but this is for some files that I do not have the option to move to another folder.
Thank you.

A:Program cannot write to installed folder

Run the program as administrator. Right click the programs .exe file and click 'Run as Administrator". Then it can do what ever you need it to, despite permissions.

I am unable to copy files to the Program Files or Program Files (x86) folders, despite my status as Administrator on a single-user system. As an advanced user, I have many legitimate needs to place files there and cannot live with this level of protection
from myself.
How can I defeat this? Many thanks.

So I was browsing my email and found a msg that I was chosen to beta test the new MMO Skyforge which I had registered for almost a year ago. Excited, I followed the directions to download the beta client file, and when I ran it, I noticed that it was trying to default to an additional disk drive that I had plugged in that was from an older rig build (the only component that survived a lightning strike). It should have defaulted to my C drive but instead is trying to install on the older drive which is marked as F drive.

So I tried to change the location, and I got a msg I've never seen before: "Insufficient permissions to write to folder....."

HUH?!

I'm logged in and ran the program as administrator, and yet windows refuses to allow me to install it.

Is there a way to fix this?

**UPDATE01**: I decided to try and run a command in cmd prompt as administrator: sfc /scannow, thinking that maybe there might have been corrupted files in my OS (Win7 Ultimate 64). sfc found nothing. Still stumped.
 

A:Insufficient Permissions to write to folder

Right click on the folder, and select properties. Make sure the Read-Only attribute is unchecked/deselected, as it could've been installed as read-only for some odd reason.
From there, open up the Security tab. Scroll through the list of "Group or user names", and look for your Windows log-in name/username.
If you do not find your username there, select Edit... underneath that list, select the Add... button near the middle of the window, and enter in your Windows username, and select OK. Make sure your username is highlighted.

After that, try and set the Permissions to Allow:Full Control. Select OK. If it asks you if you would like to apply settings to sub-folders, then yes apply changes to sub-items.
Let me know if this helped you out.

I've got a corrupted file in my CD write folder that I have tried to delete every way I can think of...without success. So every time I log on to the computer a message pops up that says I have files that are ready to be written to a CD. The file and the folder it is contained in are also part of every CD write job I set up since they always in the CD write folder.

Does anyone know how to purge corrupted file from the CD write folder? Not a major problem, but after several months, it is driving me nuts.

I am applying a solution to take backup from clients machine to a shared folder location, the share management will be done through their AD accounts through a backup application.

However, I want to prevent user from accessing the shared folder location and deleting contents
it would be possible to use another account for shared file access but am looking for better option.

if Anything from the following can be done it should be great:
- Modifying permissions to allow writing and modifying content but not deleting
- Disable web access to shared location through windows explorer
- Only allowing access to shared location through the backup application in any way
Really appreciate any help.

A:Shared folder, write but not delete

not done any Active Directory work for a while but I'm sure the delete permission was separate so a deny could be applied the the delete for the group concerned who would have the other permissions, you would need to check the stacking of the actual permissions to be sure though, a deny is a dangerous thing for sysdmins as you often forget what groups you've assigned yourself as for testing

Also it's worth having a look at Sysinternals as I think they still have some advanced AD tools

As most of the others should be possible through normal NTFS permissions and even the parental controls it should be possible using Group Policy

I just recovered my windows system partition from an Acronis backup.
Everything works fine except for anything that needs to write to Appdata.
Cannot download, cannot run Dropbox, or create new user profile at logon.
I have tried "Take Ownership", have set my user as owner via security settings, have given my user full control, but nothing works.

Would welcome any advice or info.

Thanks in advance.
