Preferred Solution: Backup access denied

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.)

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 have just completed the first full backup on my laptop. There are the usual VHD backup folders on the backup disk and I think I know from previous backups on other computers that there is a specific procedure required to view the contents of these. However, there is also a list of other files/folders which are Open Office documents and when I attempt to open these to view the contents an "Access Denied" message comes up.
Would anyone know why this occurs and if there is a 'work around' to open these documents?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Since installing Windows 8, I have been having sporadic problems with access denied. Examples follow:

PIMEX is a Personal Information Manager that I have been using through several generations of Windows. When I first converted to Windows 8, this program worked with no problems. Now, however, when I try to open the program, I get the message "PIMEX database could not be opened. Error message: permission denied". If I use the Control Panel to uninstall the program, and then reinstall the program, I am able to open it normally and work with it and use all functions. Once I close the program, however, and try to open it again, I once again get permission denied.

PaperPort is a program that manages scanned images. The program can scan either photos or text documents. If text is selected, the program creates a PDF file that the user names. These scanned files are then stored in PaperPort folders. When I try to display one of these files, PaperPort invokes PDF Viewer Plus (included with the package), and I get the message access denied. If I try to use the Windows 8 Reader to display the file, I get a "Sorry, can't display this file message". Likewise, I cannot display the file using Adobe software.

Good morning,I have a system that has had numerous issues, mainly virus related. I have cleaned the system, and show no virus activity... but I'm still having issues.Late last week the system was stuck in a loop, it wouldn't boot to Windows at all (no safe mode, no normal mode). I resorted to a Windows repair from the install disk. It worked... to a certain degree. I am now able to get into Windows, but can not open IE and I can not install a display driver.I am unable to access Windows Update, but was able to set automatic updates to install lots of updates including SP3, but I am still unable to make any changes.Initially when I attempted to open IE I would get a window saying that IE had to close instantly. I attempted to reinstall IE, and I attempted to install a newer version of IE. Neither worked. If I chose to install the updates with the install I would get an access denied error, if I chose not to install the updates with the install it would look like it worked, but now when I click on IE I get "Error loading C:\WINDOWS\System32\inetcpl.cpl. The operating system cannot run %1"In device manager, I have no drivers installed on my display adapter. If I try to update it, it looks like it's going to install... but then I get "Cannot install the hardware. Access is Denied".Any assistance or insight into this would be appreciated.

A:Unable to access IE, access denied when updating display drivers, no windows update

On any system with a number of issues...it's often better to do a clean install to wipe the slate clean, rather than hope that you have patched all known and unknown issues, IMO.

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??

So today I was working on my computer, my norton antivirus expired and so I bought a new one. Well it wouldn't renew my subscription so I read on a website that you need to clear norton out of your registry. So I followed the directions and ever since I did that when I open a webpage it goes to a screen that says:

ERROR

The requested URL could not be retrieved
-----------------------------------------------

The following error was encountered:

- Cache Access Denied

Access control configuration prevents this request.

On top of that I get a similar message when I try to run live update. I have the computer hooked up to a linksys router with high speed internet. Please help.

A:Messed up computer and cannot access internet, page says cache access denied

Hmm, that's a good one. Try reinstalling IE or Firefox, whatever internet software you use. You might have inadvertently deleted an application cache file which the application needs.

Only other thing to do is boot into safe mode and select last know good boot.

I have Windows XP and have been getting tons of junk mail. I ran Avast, malware bytes &spybot. Nothing found. So I started looking through the Dell help on my computer. I'm not as savvy as I'd like to be and while trying to fix the issue myself I did something that I shouldn't have. First, I tried to go back to a later date but it wouldn't let me no mater which date I tried. Then,I followed a suggestion regarding the registries. HUGE mistake! Now my computer is stuck in a boot loop. I obviously need to repopulate my hives but have no idea how. When the computer starts the Windows XP logo pops up. Then a box appears saying leads.exe access denied. Process has requested access to an object, but has not been granted those access rights. When I click OK the DELL LOGO comes up & then the process repeats itself. I can't start in safe mode, Can't start in last known good configuration. So, I tried ordering some disks that I thought may be able to help while I've been reading through threads for information. I don't have any of the original software for this cop, I purchased it used a few years ago. But, I purchased a Knoppix 7.6.1., system rescue from same CO, & 2 CDs off eBay Windows XP 64 bit & 32 bit. Don't know how to use any of them though. Please help!

A:lsass.exe - Access Denied a process has requested access to an object but

Stupid autocorrect, grrr. The box that pops up says, lsass.exe Access Denied. I'm using my tablet.

Hello I am unable to access my task manager on Windows 7 as administrator. Whenever I try to access it a Command window flashes on the screen quickly and that's it. Same thing happens when taskmgr.exe is clicked. 
 
I was able to capture the command window error as the following:

A:Unable to access Task Manager - Error: Access is denied

blue gravity,
 
Please confirm that the command that is attempting to execute is the following:
 
 

REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
This command is trying to enable task manager but the command prompt that is trying to enable task manager does not have the permissions to do that.
 
 
Please try the following:
 
Click Start
Type cmd
Right click cmd.exe
Select Run as administrator
type "REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f"
Press enter
Close cmd.exe
Log out
Log in
Try to open task manager
 
If this does not work, or you believe your computer might be infected, please follow the instructions found at Am I Infected, as I am not authorized to assist with the removal of malware.
 
Thank you,

A:Denied Access To Set Program Access And Defaults By Rundll32.exe

Hi and welcome.rundll32.exe is a process which executes DLL's and places their libraries into the memory, so they can be used more efficiently by applications. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.Note: rundll32.exe is a process registered as a backdoor vulnerability which may be installed for malicious purposes by an attacker allowing access to your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.This is strange, this might be a malware or it might just be some promblem with the rundll32.exeI would run a scan and see what the scanners find. DON'T remove rundll32.exe, because it is most likely a legitimate file.Regards,ExtremeboyGreat that you figured it out. Can you tell us how you fixed the promblem?

Hi, everyone,

I'm mostly a Linux guy these days, so I'm no longer clued up about even simple Windows issues. Bear with me.

I have one PC running Vista (home basic), one running XP (professional) and one running Windows 7 (home basic). There is a printer connected to the Vista box, which is shared.

On the XP box I can both see and use the printer on the Vista box (i.e. a "net view \\vistabox" shows the printer, and under "printers and faxes" I can install and use it).

On the Windows 7 box, however, I can see the Vista box (i.e. a "net view" shows it in the list of available PCs on the network) but a "net view \\vistabox" gives me an "access denied" error.

The Windows 7 machine has a password on it, the Vista and XP machines don't. All machines are on the same workgroup name (which is "WORKGROUP"). On the XP box I don't need a password to access the shared printer on the Vista machine; it just works.

Extensive Googling has failed to render enlightenment, nor has browsing this forum. I'm sure it has something to do with security and passwords, somewhere, somehow, but I have no idea in which direction to look for it, let alone fix it. I have also read some things about workgroups and homegroups not being the same in Windows 7, but I'm not sure if this is correct (and if so, relevant).

All suggestions on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated!

And yet quite possibly another no brainer for you all, I work on a large number of machines for family and friends, mostly 2000 or XP Home and Pro and to be quite honest with you I am not sure what the best way to connect to these machines would be, what I mean is I am soooooo tired of setting up a machine in my shop, running up stairs to my primary machine to either get in remotly or tap into the c:\ drive of the other machine only to realize that I do not have permition, or I do not remember the computer name, or I do not have the password, or I can not log on as the "guest". Do you know what I mean? I get so frustrated when I get the "Access Denied" message. it seems to me I spend more time trying to get into these machines than I do reparing them. So I guess my question would be, once I have the machine setup what is the FASTEST way for me to gain access to that machine from another machine? Lets just focus on XP and 2000, Do I really have to setup a user first to gain access? or is there a quicker way. Thanks.
