Access denied to entire directory on backup drive

Q: Access denied to entire directory on backup drive

Following a hardware upgrade we reinstalled software and attempted to restore data from the old drive now housed in an external caddy. Everything was able to be accessed apart from payroll backups.

The backup payroll files, indeed all the files within the payroll directory can not be moved even using Windows Explorer...the error message "Access Denied Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use" keeps appearing. No other files on the drive seem to be affected.

Is there any way we can change the access rights to this directory? The software in question is Sage Payroll (current version).

Preferred Solution: Access denied to entire directory on backup drive

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 Dalwhat and welcome to TSF !

Try to take ownership of the folder and see if it helps :

If you're using XP Home you'll need to restart the computer in safe mode and log as the administrator for the security tab to appear.

Hi,

I was initially trying to download an update for firefox and everytime I did, it didn't download properly. Trying to change profiles I found that the folder was read-only. as is every other folder on my drive. I uncheck it - apply - ok, then it's back again! this also applies for files aswell. nothing that i do turns off read-only and it means i get access denied messages when trying to install mozilla.

Recently my 2nd hard drive that had paging files on it died. I swapped the page files to my (now)only hard drive. That is the only thing that has happened.

any ideas/ help GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

Well....I did an uninstall/reinstall today of Ultima Online....backed up my Desktop (containing profiles/macros for my characters) directory to my desktop of course, and after the install, slapped it back into the Ultima Online 2D directory and I got Access Denied all over the place when trying to browse the desktop directory that i pasted into the Ultima Online 2D directory.....and it's really annoying cause i have to go open each folder manually, Select All, then Right click, Set access to everyone, for EACH FOLDER and every file within each folder.....between 3-4 different "accounts" and different "servers" and 5 characters on each account, that's a lot of selecting, right clicking and setting to everyone access.....sooo....lol.

On another forum, a regedit trick was posted to access the CACLS.exe file from the right click context menu to set the files/directories to "Everyone" and I wanted to know if it is possible to use a wildcard *.* in the following regedit.

Despite being totally open to the (home) network, I cannot access it.

I suspect this will always be the case with a new directory. How can I remove the padlock? I must have been able to do it before as there are no problems with directories which are already shared, but I don't recall having this difficulty when setting these up.

Have you tried going into the Security settings? When sharing drives you need to set up the standard permissions and also the security settings will need some adjusting.

I noted several other directories with the same attributes and that I couldn't access any of them (including Documents, Desktop, Start-Menu, Templates).

i was working on permissions, ownership, and auditing. i was wondering, a lot of files deny access regardless of whether
i assume ownership, or so for my group. are those denials logged somewhere so I can delve into the purpose of those files
and reason they are locked? too many to list from system files to individual program files.

changing these setting was tricky too because i belong to a group on the system, that i denied access, while granting myself access. i wound up with denied access. is there a way to fix this security loophole?

I've read tutorials on how things like My Documents in Vista are really junctions to new file paths, but I still haven't been able to figure out how to apply it to my situation.

The power kicked out on my old computer, and I had another PC lying around, so I stuck it in as a back up drive to access the files I still wanted. So, the old drive that used to run XP is no longer the operating drive, just used for storage, it's the D drive and now there's a new C drive. I'm able to access just about everything I want except for what's in "my documents". I keep getting "access is denied".

I've looked for the new file paths listed here:
Access Denied to Documents and Settings*-*Vista

on this back up drive and on the new operating system drive. but I could only find the old "my documents" folder on the old drive (D), and the "documents" folder on the new drive with the operating system installed (C) only has new files I've created or d/led since I've installed the operating system.

I don't know if it makes a difference, but I get a little triangle with an exclamation mark instead of the red circle with an x when I get the "access is denied" message.

Any help would be much appreciated. I've taken ownership of the whole drive, but I read that doesn't apply in this situation.

A:"access is denied" on an old xp drive now used as backup on a vista system

The "My Documents" folder in your C:\Users\username folder in your Vista drive is a junction but that doesn't affect the My Documents folder on the old XP drive which is still a real folder, not a junction.

You should be able to get access to that folder in Vista, if you can fight your way through the ownership and permissions maze.

If you have various user accounts, log in as the Admin user. Right-click a link to Windows Explorer in the Start Menu and click "Run as administrator". That way everything you do in that Explorer window will have elevated priviledges and you won't keep getting UAC prompts. In Explorer, right click the My Documents folder on the XP drive, click the Security tab and give lots of rights to the account you are currently using. Then you might be able to copy files out of it into an ordinary folder which you should make outside of any user folders.

If all else fails, you could try running Linux from a live CD, such as the Ubuntu installer CD (no need to actually install Ubuntu onto the hard disk). Recent versions of Ubuntu include a file manager which can access NTFS partitions. It is less obedient of NTFS security restrictions so it might allow you to copy the files from My Documents on the XP drive to an ordinary folder on the Vista drive.

Hello folks,

I know similar questions have been asked but I "might" have a unique one. What I have been trying to do is to copy the "C:\Users", "C:\Program Files", & "C:\Program Files (x86)" to another clean hard drive "D:\".

I'm doing this to make more room for the OS in the C: drive while date will be in the D: drive. Now I have successfully robocopy Program Files & Program Files (x86). I also have copied most of the Users directory but for this stubborn Real\update directory. This is I think the real player program. I get this Access Denied and "Error 5" error. I am in elevated command prompt. I achieved this via the Repair your computer prompt on the Windows install DVD.

I also have rmdir for Program Files & Program Files and have made a mklink for both of them so windows knows where they will be. But I have not did a full boot because I don't think windows will access my Users directory because they have been moved over to the new drive. What I can only do will have to be via the command prompt.

I can't make a mklink for Users because I get an error saying something about duplicate areas? What I was trying to do is go to this Real\update directory but even trying to access that directory via cd commands will not work, giving me a access denied. Again I am in elevated command prompt "Administrator:X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe How can I get to that directory. I just want... Read more

You probably just can't move your program files due to the possibility of config files and registry entries that are looking for your programs on the c drive since that's where they where installed. They should be reinstalled if you want to move them. Also if you move the profiles folder (under c:\user) it will break your profiles and you will need to change the location in the registry. I suggest that you put everything back and just move your personal files, music, pics, & videos on another drive. That should free up a lot of space.

Hi -

Error code 0x80072efd has to do with Internet connectivity issues dealing with the Microsoft servers for Vista installation activation. This is most likely the reason for Microsoft Update problems.

But I would also like to backup software such as my operating system-

Hi,

I use Windows 7's built in back up feature to backup my libraries and a system image every week. I partitioned my external hard drive so that the backup files are stored seperately from my other files on the drive.

Windows 7 gives me 2 options of how to manage the space. Either 'Only store the most recent backup' or 'Let Windows manage my space (Max 60GB)' (See screenshot)

I would like to know if there is a way to set it to use the full 200GB of the partition. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance,

A:Make Windows Backup use entire drive

Hello Caleb,

By default, the maximum size will only be up to 30% of the total free space on the HDD or partition that you have the system image saved to. Unfortunately 30% of 200GB is 60GB. The only way to have more space available is to increase the size of the partition.

A better backup program than Windows backup is Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download It backups whole partitions. You just need to tell it which ones to backup and on what schedule and it does the rest. I have restored my partitions several times and have never had a problem. A large portion of the members here use Macrium. You need a large HDD for the backups as it makes an image of all of your partition on each backup, not incrementals unless you use the pay version of it. I bought a 500 GB drive that I use for only backups and delete the older ones every few weeks. I think you will like it.

A:Access denied to backup restore

I have no idea. This seems to be a theme recently where nobody's back-up program will allow them to access the files.

The only two ideas I can come up with are 1, you should re-post this in the "Windows" forum. And 2, get with support of the external drive manufacturer. There may be encryption of file involved when writing to the external drive .

I'm sorry I'd don't have more than that for you.

I can open the directory and see all the files with the exception of 'My Documents', I get Access Denied. How can I get around this.

Hi everyone, I backed up an image of my drive before I reformatted Windows 7, using Easus Todo Backup. Everything went fine, except the problem is when I mount the drive to access it, I cant access the user folders. It says access is denied, and that I have to reconfigure the user permissions. There doesnt seem to be any way to configure it so that I can access them, however. I have tried: naming my computer and workgroup to the same name as it was before, tried accessing as administrator, and tried accessing them in safe mode. Any help would be great.

Thanks,
Dallas

A:Access Denied When Accessing Backup Image

You can't change the permissions in the backup, it gets mounted as Read only. Since you re-installed Windows, the accounts that had access no longer exist (the account is more than just the name and password).

Can you copy the entire User folder to your hard drive someplace? Then you can take ownership and change permissions.

If it won't let you copy the User folder, you'll have to restore the image to a drive so that you can take ownership and change permissions.

I am trying to use Windows backup for laptop to external drive. Did it once before, no problem. I deleted old backup, ran again, seemed to run fine but got message that it did not complete successfully 0x80070005. Click "more information" and it says access denied. Looking at the drive with explorer, I see

Windows image backup
(Computer name)
Backup (date)
(name).vhd
(name).vhd
Catalog
BackupGlobalCatalog
GlobalCatalog

All files have dates of the day I made the attempt
The first .vhd file is 47MB, the second 254 GB, which is probably all I have on disk
To see what it actually is, I tried restore, browse for files, and it comes up with a backup from months ago, probably the one I deleted. Maybe should have deleted using backup program, not explorer. I can drill down in this and see individual files, but did not try to restore.
Clicked on "choose another backup to restore from, it activated the drive but came up with the same one.
What do I do?

A:Last backup did not complete successfully, access denied

Hello Comfuted, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like you may have improperly deleted the backup, or you have a deleted folder still included to be backed up.

If you like, you could reset Windows Backup to default, and set it up again to how you like to hopefully stop getting this error.

Backup User and System Files - Reset to Default Configuration

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I'm getting the following error: Backup Exec 10.d - Access denied to file **
It's pretty much happening for all Exchange "mailboxes".

What I've done so far:

1. Rebuild backup job
2. Test Resource Credentials
3. Added Backup Exec user w/Admin rights -
This account will be used as the backup exec logon account
*I'll find out tomorrow if this #3 fixes the problem
I tried using the "TEST" run - took too long

I've tried to create a backup of my computer files on an external hard drive three times but I get the same error message each time. Microsoft Security Essentials pops up and tells me that it caught a Trojan (Karagany.G) lurking in one of the shadow copy files. I'm the administrator, no other user accounts on this laptop, so I don't understand why I don't have access to all my files as the error says.
This is the directory that always pops up: file:\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy61\Users\cjlanc\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\55\63ca7fb7-144752c8 It's driving me insane. Some help please?

Hi,
I got an image (acronis) from the hd from my old PC which was stolen. I can mount the backuped partitions as logical drives on my new computer. I can explore them, but all files in my personal documents directory cannot be opened or copied, because access is denied. I followed instructions, mentioned elsewhere in order to 'take ownership' of those files (properties/security/advanced/owner) but when I click the owner-tab I already get a warning that I can only view the current owner. And indeed there is no way to change that. Of course I'm administrator. I have the same user name on the new computer as I had on the old one (which does not help, obviously).
Any advice? Needless to say that I really need those files...
Thanks for any help!

Hello!

I am reinstalling a system for my mother whose system crashed. I have everything set-up and was going to do a complete system drive backup (and have it a regular event). Everytime I try to back it up I get an immediate error saying that the access was denied.

Vista Ultimate x64
2 x 250 Gig HD (1: C:\ ~204G (~60g used) and D:\ ~30G, 2: E:\ ~233G)

Trying to backup C:\ to E:\ (Complete backup, not just files - File backup works)

C:\ is owned by TrustedInstaller D:\ is owned by the the only account (w/ admin status)

I am attaching pics to show the windows I get throughout the process.

I have seen many posts via Google with this issue, but haven't found an applicable fix for this situation.

Thanks in advance!

A:Complete Backup Fails immediately - Access Denied

Hi -

The error code 0x80070005 that I saw in the screenshots (nice, BTW) does refer to file permission issues. You are using Vista Ultimates own backup program so I would assume that the UAC prompted you and you are running at an elevated administrative level. To make sure of this, activate and log on to the hidden Vista admin account and try again. To activate the account -

START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe above under programs - select run as admin. Then type net user administrator /active:yes into the black cmd/DOS screen. Logoff your account and the user account named Administrator will be waiting for you at the logon screen. 2x-click on it.

One thing that is not clear to me here - You mentioned that the system crashed. I hope you know that doing this full system backup and then using it as a source for a restore, you will be left with the same system that crashed - even if you re-install Vista 1st. I think you may want to perform a more selective backup of personal folders and files. Also be wary of potential transference of infection if it now exists.

Regards. . .

Hello,

I have a 4gb flash drive and some how when I was formatting it the computer only formatted 200mb out of the available 3.7gb. I have no idea how to get the computer to format the rest of the drive. The computer sees the rest of the flash drive but it wont let me delete the original partition and it wont let me partition the 3.5gb i locked up. When I try to format the 3.5gb part it says: "An unexpected error has occured. Check the System Event Log for more information on the error. Close the Disk Management console, then restart Disk Management or restart the computer." I have restarted the computer and the disk management console to no avail. I have poked around the application event viewer and I cold not pinpoint this error so I don't have anymore details from the computer. Here is a screen shot I took of the disk manager. Disk 2 is the flash drive that I am having trouble with. When I right click to delete the 200mb partition the 'delete' option is grayed out and unclickable. I am running Windows 7 Professional x86.

Thank you for your time,

Adam

3 computers, desktop running Ultimate and backing up to AC-powered external drive and 2 laptops running Professional and back up to USB-powered external drives.. Backups set for full data and included system image for all 3..

No problem with desktop (which backs up daily), but unable to successfully back up either laptop since Windows Update installed SP-1. Fails as below:

Error: 0x80070005 - Access denied

Both laptops were set to run backups once a week (since the external drives are not plugged in at all times).. and, never had a problem with the backups failing before..

No changes were made before or after SP-1, checked permissions, all set to Full Control, log in as Administrator with UAC off (only one using the computers).. Ran chkdsk on both laptops and both external drives and no problems found.. Ran sfc /scannow and also clean for both..

Tried disabling all non-Microsoft services except for anti-virus and bluetooth (mouse is bluetooth) on one laptop and backup still failed with the same error.. Seems to get to approx 97% - 99% before it fails..

Have found older posts referecing making sure the D: drive is not set for backup or system restore.. Have never used it, backups have always been to the external drives (L: on one laptop and H: on the other).

Hi Iray007, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The Windows system folders Program Files, Program Files (x86), Windows and ProgramData are protected and by default the user cannot create / save anything inside them without taking the ownership of these folders or using the built-in administrator rights.

It is not recommend to use these protected system folders for saving program output or personal files. You should create and save your projects on some other location, for instance create a folder in your personal user folder for this purpose (C:\Users\Your_Username\MyProjects).

Hello,

I have an issue, I have not have before. I am running XP pro SP3 with all updates installed. I use AVG free for everyday protection, with a router configured as a firewall, as well as the standard Win firewall. I also use Windows Defender, Windows malicious software removal too, I was using LiveOne Care, but it no longer exists. I also use Malwarebytes free version regularly and RUBotted.

So here is the issue. I was at a work conference and took my flash drive to transfer my presentation to the laptop that is used for the projector in auditorium. Got it back, threw it in my purse and never thought anything more about it. Today I started to transfer another presentation to the flash drive and wala, AVG pops up with "threat detected, move files to virus vault?" The message initially said: Recycler.exe. So of course I click yes to transfer to virus vault. It appears the file is in my virus vault. I then ran AVG on the flash drive and it came up with another virus CNN and sent it to the virus vault as well. I then ran malwarebytes, AVG, Windows Defender, as well as BitDefender online. I tried to use Kapersky as well, but it appears it is being updated and not available. All came up clean.

So, I am thinking the problem is taken care of. So I set up AVG to run on the flashdrive again on and it says "no infection found". But when I try to access the flash drive as usual, it said K:access denied (that is my USB drive). HMMMM now what? So I check the dri... Read more
