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

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

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.

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

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.)

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.

I have run into this more than once before, and I'm looking for a straight answer as to why this is happening.
There is an avi file in C:\some folder, and I can't rename it.  The message is, "You require permission from Administrators to make changes to this file."  The problem is that I am using an administrator account, and when I look at the
permissions for that file, Administrators is granted Full control.  (I don't know whether an administrator account implies membership in the Administrators group in Windows 7, but I am in that group, in this case).
I also saw that Everyone had Read and Read & Execute permissions, so I tried just granting that group Full control.  This just gave the error message, "Unable to save permission changes on 3441.avi.  Access is denied."
I just want to get an authoritative answer on why this happening and on how to fix it.  Thanks.
Edit:
I am able to access that file with user Administrator, but not with my own personal Administrators account.  I tried using Administrator to explicitly add my personal account to the permissions for the file, granting it Full control, but I am still
unable to use the personal account to change the file; only Administrator works.

A:I am an Administrator, but I keep getting errors like, "You require permission from Administrators to make changes to this file."

Hi,
This situation happens because you are not the owner of this folder of file, The default owner of a file or folder is the person who creates the resource.

Log on the computer with the account which created the folder of file, namely the owner, then you are permitted to modify the file or folder.


Also, you can follow this article to assign ownership of files and folders:

I decided to delete some old Windows installations from my machine.  Windows.old, Windows.000, etc.  Easy peasy, right?
Not!!!!  Apparently, I have to give MYSELF permission to delete the folders and files!!!
And, YES--I am an administrator, using an administrator account.  Since I have administrator level access, I should be able to perform administrative functions--right?
Unless I DON"T happen to own the folders and/files--right? Then the administrator level access becomes null and void--right?
Even with the tool that allows one to "TAKE OWNERSHIP" of a folder--it seems as though this will only give ownership at the CURRENT level.  Any subordinate folders remain unchanged.  (You will have to take ownership of every sub-folder,
that falls under the folder that you want to delete!  This MIGHT be a bit inconvenient--when you're faced with having to take ownership of 2,000+ folders and files!!!)
I wonder if there is a tool or application that will allow one to TAKE OWNERSHIP, not just of the CURRENT folder--but ALL sub-folders and files that are subordinate to the current folder?

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.

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.
 

A: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.

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

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,

Although my problem isn't extremely urgent, I would appreciate a hasty response because my anxiety is growing.

I've been using Windows Vista since I bought this computer, so my OS has never been changed.

I recently had to resort to restoring my computer, but I first excersised the priveledge of backing up my picture and video files; these are very precious to me. So, the restore went perfectly, as did the backing up of my files, except now when I try to view them, a message pops up in Windows Photo Gallery (since that's the program I use) that states, "Photo Gallery can't open this picture because you do not have permission to access the file location." Any other program I use gives a similar message, with the same results. Also, everytime this happens my taskbar disappears...

Thank you,
Krista Jackson

P.S.> I attempted to fix this problem on my own by denying SYSTEM permissions. It is a Built-in Security thing, so I figured it wouldn't deny Administrator or my User (I am the administrator) access. I then switched ownership from Administrator to Krista (my User). My actions disappointingly came with no results, but now I just hope I didn't mess anything important up; when I try to allow SYSTEM permission, I cannot.

Hi Krista


Since you recently ran a restore:

1) Backup any other personal data you've added since onto CD-R/DVD-R, or USB key.
2) Run your restore again. [I'm recommending this step to undo the "SYSTEM" permission changes you made -- since I'm not sure how extensively you applied the changes -- and this is a simple fix]
3) Create a Temporary folder (or two) [each with a unique name!] into which you can copy your photo and video backups.
4) Scan the folder(s) for malware, just to be safe.
5) Gain ownership of the temporary folder(s) you created for your photos & videos
--- 5a) Make sure you are logged in as a user with administrative rights.
--- 5b) In Windows Explorer, browse to the location of the folder you created to hold the photo/video backups
--- 5c) Right-click the folder, and select "Properties"

I backed up my outlook pst file last night to do a clean install. Now that it is all up and running, I cannot import the backup.pst. It tells me that access to the file is denied. Any advice on how to get around this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
 

A:Cannot import pst file in outlook, it says file access is denied???

Hi musiclover

Copy the .pst file to the hard drive, check the properties of the .pst file and verify it is *not* marked Read-only.

Open instead of Import the .pst file.
In Outlook...version?
File > Open > Outlook Data File
Browse to the location of the .pst file.

I'm trying to get rid of the Windows 10 upgrade nag. I removed the offending Windows update but I'm still getting the nag. Another website suggested renaming Windows\System32\GWX\GWXUX.exe. I changed ownership of System32 and subdirectories from Trusted Installer to Administrators. I'm logged in as administrator but I still get a screen saying "You require permission from Administrators to make changes to this file." when I try to rename it.

Why do I get this message? How can I rename the file?

Hi,
Thanks for your post.
Regarding your question, we wonder whether you encountered the ?Access Denied? message for every document in your computer or just part of these documents?
Here are some options you can try to solve the problem:

Right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.Click the Security tab.Under Group or user names, click your name to see the permissions you have.
Click Edit, then click the check boxes for the permissions that you need. Click
OK.(
You may need to be logged on as an administrator to change file and folder permissions)
If method above failed, Please try following:
Since you have recently rebooted your computer, some of your account information may have changed and you may no longer have ownership of your files or folders. To take ownership of a folder:

Right-click the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then click
Properties.Click the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click the
Owner tab.Click Edit. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.Click the name of the person you want to give ownership to.If you want that person to be the owner of files and subfolders in this folder, select the
Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.Click OK.
Does it work?
Sometimes, this issue may occur if the file is encrypted, becomes corrupt or your user profile corrupts that windows might not read your user profile correctly, In th... Read more

Hi, I have Windows 7, was trying to change one host file which involves adding one line to it and every time when I try to save it i get a response "can not change the file, ask permission from administrator". I am administrator and only one using this computer.

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.

EDIT: It's not actually solved, but has now become a Win Media Centre issue. I will post there.

I have tried to delete several folders containing recorded DVDs. Most of them went, but there are a half dozen that can not be deleted.

The structure is:
f:\dvds
- DVDName#1
- Videots
- Audiots
- DVDName#2
- Videots
- Audiots
etc

These were in WMC Movies Library, by using their parent folder f:\dvds. However I have now removed that from the library. All the successfully deleted folders were in the same parent folder.

I am told I need permission to delete them. I actually am logged in as admin. I checked in Properties/security n their parent folder and I have all permissions except Special, which is greyed out for all listed users.

However when I try to look at security for any of the individual DVD folders, I am told I do not have permission to even _see_ the security settings

I then saw that the folders were read-only. I attempted to uncheck that, but again was told I needed admin privileges.

Given that I am admin, what's going on here?

EDT: I am also the owner of the parent folder, but cannot see or alter the owner of the sub-folders.

Any help most appreciated.

A:Permission denied to administrator

If there's nothing in f:\dvds that you want to keep, just delete the parent folder (f:\dvd) If you want some folders in f:\dvd but not others - you might have to take ownership. There's a tutorial that sets up a context menu Take Ownership.

Good luck

I have been trying to setup a postscript printer on port "File:" so I can print anything from a webpage to a file for running through Acrobat 8 Distiller. When I first install the print to file, it works fine until I reboot the computer. Every time I print to this printer after the reboot, I get a pop-up box titled "Local Port" with the message "Cannot Print to File: Access Denied". I gather it is a permission problem of some sort as I can log onto the Administrator user-id and it prints to file fine. Any ideas on what permissions I need to set this printer to in order for it to work under a standard user-id?

Using Windows Vista Ultimate X64.

Thanks
Ian.

I have given up finding a solution to the problem. I no longer use Adobe Acrobat Professional full as I have tried both updates 8.0.1 & 8.0.2 to no avail, and is now unsupported as Adobe is up to version 9 of this software. I have opted for a freeware solution, so I have uninstalled Adobe Acrobat Professional and installed the freeware CUTEPDF Writer at www.cutepdf.com. It works beautifully on Vista X64 on all documents, including Microsoft Word and Scanned Images and Photos. I'm very happy with the results.

Recent changes:
We recently removed 5 out of 6 total 2008R2 DCs from our environment and promoted 5 x 2016 servers as DCs.  We are still running the domain functional level @ 2008R2 however.
Single forest 2 domain environment
Shortly have recent changes (stated above) the issue started with 5 users in parent domain.  After existing user logs in applications like  windows explorer, internet explore, will error with  "windows cannot access the specified
device, path or file. you may not have the appropriate permission to access the item".  Also, other applications will not run as they are attempting to resister OCX file and DLLs.  cannot access computer management even after granting affected
user local admin rights.  This issue has now transcended to child domain and is affecting at the moment only 1 existing user.
Unaffected users are able to login to same test computer and run applications without issue.
Clearly a domain permission problem with the user account, but not sure how to proceed.
For testing I gave affected users domain admin rights and the issue goes away.  Remove domain admin rights and the issue returns for the user.
Any ideas?

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.

I am fed up with this stupid thing!

I need to copy a file to a usb drive. I AM The Administrator. DEP is Off. I have no software running that could stop this transfer like spybot tea timer, or an anti-virus.firewall. UAC is Disabled.

My Win 7 tells Me... ME I don't have permission to access the file! The very Nerve of this thing!

I am GOD on my PC and I don't want Windows interfering in MY business! Apparently this uppity Win 7 seeks to challenge it's master. Well it's time to stop that behavior and show it who's the boss.

Any ideas?

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.
