Solved: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner is not accessible. Access denied.

Q: Solved: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner is not accessible. Access denied.

I'd like to transfer the data from my Owner profile to a new profile, but I keep receiving this message while trying to do so: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner is not accessible. Access denied.

I followed the Microsoft Knowledge Base article, so I don't know what's preventing me from accessing the Owner folder.

Note I'm using an administrator account to access the Owner folder.

Preferred Solution: Solved: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner is not accessible. 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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner is not accessible. Access denied.

Could be the permissions are set for the Owner account only, and not the Administrators Group.

Right click the C:\Documents and Settings\Owner folder, click Properties, then click the Security tab.
Make sure Administrators is listed -- note the s, and the icon should have two heads, not one.
You must have simple file sharing turned off to see the security tab and for XP Home, boot into safe mode, or install the XP Security tab fix from the link in this post
To turn off simple file sharing:
Control Panel | Folder Options
View tab
Uncheck Use simple file sharing (Recommended) (last item in the list)

You can also take ownership of the folder:

Win xp sp2. My computer crashed and I had to use the recovery disc supplied by the manufacturer. The recovery process erased the HD but offered me the option of backing up which I did. When I try to open the 'owner' folder or any of the users folders it says 'Access denied'. How can I open my owner folder to recover my files. This is only happening with the users folders and not with other folders on the C: drive.

If you have Home Edition of XP, use this to make the Security tab appear: XP Security Tab Home Edition. You will not need Safe Mode as in the MS directions. Just use this to get the security tab, and then use the "Undo" file to get things back to normal.

Hi, if anyone could help me with this, it would be great!

All of a sudden when I try to open my C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents folder, it says "access denied"

running xp home sp2.

any suggestions?

oh, I did a google for solutions and various pages often suggested I turn off simple file sharing, but the option is non existant under my file/view menu...

A:Access Denied to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents

It sounds to me as though the administrator has made that directory path private. Are you the admin, and if so, are you logged into a user account with admin rights? If all else fails, reboot and log into the Administrator account and go to the control panel/users and change your preferred account status. While you're there, unlock the problem path to allow all users to view.

Good Luck!

I've been using Win7 for a while and have found some quirky behavior, but this one has got me stumped. The Documents and Settings Folder now appears in Explorer as a Shortcut...I don't recall that being the case before? When I click it, I get, the pop up window, "You don't currently have permission to access this folder." Clicking 'continue' gives 2nd pop up, "You have been denied access to this folder".

There is only 1 account set up on this laptop, and it is the Administrator, and of course that is how I am logged in. The security permissions show that I have "Full Control". "Special Permissions" are only assigned to the 'System'.

If I look at he properties (at least of the shortcut in Explorer) they are set to Read-Only.

So, I'd like to verify that:

1. Access to this folder via Explorer is by Shortcut...and it was always that way and didn't magically change.

2. There should be access to the actual folder, at least by the Administrator Account.

3. and how do you access this folder dag nab it.

Thanks,

WinClick to expand...
If no group permissions were changed it is a simple case of ownership. Right click the shortcut>ope file location>right click folder>security>who owns it?

If the owner is not you, you can either add yourself to the group that owns it (trusted installer perhaps?) or take ownership of the folder.
That should enable access

Hello,

I think I did something stupid and am facing the consequences but am hoping that someone can help me to remove the blockage.

A week ago, I was setting up a Guest User account for my roommate to use my PC. I clicked on Security tab to make some changes so she won't have a full control or access to drive C like documents and whatnot.

Then recently, I had to re-format drive C and after that, I downloaded a file I needed and was instructed to place it in drive C: documents and settings/users folder. However, I couldn't find the document & settings folder and I was puzzled and then realized that it's hidden from the public and non-accessible.

I tried to reverse the permissions and whatnot but I'm still not accessing to that part anymore.

How do I remedy that and remove all the blockages?

Thanks in advance!

A:Drive C: documents and settings - access denied

Win Vista and 7 have a different directory structure than XP. They do not use a Documents and Settings folder, and block access to it to prevent improper installations. Instead, it stores user data in C:\Users\. Try putting your data there, instead.

A:Documents and Settings folder - access denied

Hi Magnummaniac, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Documents and Settings in Windows 7 is not a folder, it is just a junction (link) used for backward compatibility with Windows XP; for instance when an application tries to save something as in XP to Document and Settings, Windows 7 redirects the action to corresponding folder in its own main Users folder, default at C:\Users. A user should never need to access Documents and Settings in Windows 7.

Using myself as an example, I have used Windows 7 six years now, started over a year before it was officially published in 2009. I have never - I repeat Never Ever - even clicked the Documents and Settings icon, nor have I had any reason to access it.

That is the correct condition - you are not supposed to be able to access that area. If you have tried to force the issue undo whatever you have done before you hit trouble, using System Restore if necessary.This is the path you want to get you to the Startup folder:"C:\Users\<your name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"You need to say what this welcome idea is about - a screen message, audio or what?

A:Access to the path 'C:\Documents and Settings' is denied - Win7-32 Bit

Documents and settings, in Windows 7, is relegated to a System file and is known, together with several other "legacy" folders, as a "junction" folder. It is there for backward compatibility purposes only.
Your problem could be just that - compatibility. Try right clicking the installation file and check under the compatibility options. Run in Xp mode and also as Administrator. See if that is succesful.

A:Solved: c: users>Lyn>ApplDate>Local>History is not accessible. Access is denied.

ha, I figured it out. yippee. What I did was delete the last file that was in my way. I knew it was not an important file and had no data anyway.

then I created 2 new files just where I needed them to complete the file path I need. and it worked. these 2 files are real files, not those transparent link ones that deny access.

so, thanks all for your help, later...StrikingEagle.

Hi, and welcome to TSG

Its never a good idea to rename accounts because a lot of the time there will usually be conflicting between the two user names. Try deleting the account than putting it back and see what happens.

A:C:\Documents and Settings has become in-accessible

Hello Bill,

That's because that location is a junction point and not a real folder. These junction points are used for backwards compatibility for older programs that still reference the old location in XP and prior instead of the new location in Vista and Windows 7.

Your My Documents folder, without the shortcut arrow on it, is actually located at this location instead:

C:\Users\(user-name)\My Documents

Hope this helps,
Shawn

A:[SOLVED] Access Denied on old My Documents Folder

He probably had the "Make my files private" setting enabled for his account, which restricts access to the files for that account, even on a new XP install. In the future you can take ownership of the files to gain access to them.

I have an old computer running XP. The motherboard died so I removed the IDE hard disk, inserted it in a case and purchased an IDE to USB connector.

It connects perfectly to my laptop which also runs XP

BUT although I can get to most of the stuff I can't access any of the contents of the My Documents file. It just says access denied. I assume this is because I need a password although I did not have any password set on the old computer.

Is there any way I can access the old documents to copy them onto the new laptop?

It looks like one of the junction points that provides some backwards compatibility and which shows when unhiding files in Control Panel>Folder Options>View. There is no Documents and Settings folder in Win7, except as a junction point.

Read more about junction points here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...=vs.85%29.aspx

In Win7 Documents is under All Users>[User Name]>Documents. Perhaps you should hide Hidden and System Files again to see only the WIn7 folders you need.

I have the original HD of my laptop in an external sleeve and it used to mount with no issues A few months back when I plugged it in it mounted but I knew something was up when next to the drive icon I didn't have the bar showing the storage amount Not accessible, access denied.. next to it and Not accessible, access denied.. sure enough quot F is not accessible Access denied quot I swept it w Norton found two small things and cleaned it I used chkdsk and went through all of that I right-clicked and changed permissions on every enclosing file folder and most recently I tried setting a quot special group Not accessible, access denied.. quot to replace take ownership There have been restarts when I tired this stuff Now I have a new little shared group icon next to the drive K what I renamed it but still no storage bar which leads to the same not accessible Access denied I did have to re-install from recovery disks about the time this happened The external drive still has a boot sector on it but I hadn't actually started up from that external ever What could be a next step I'm on Vista Home Premium I run a few apps at their bit versions and on an HP entertainment PC yes it's old in pc years but Thanks

A:Not accessible, access denied..

Do you have access to another computer? It would be interesting to try it on another to see if it can read it, although that would have to come later once you're sure that there isn't a security issue (virus compromised).

Regarding your re-install from recovery disks, why did you need to do this? I'm just wondering if you were combating a viral infection of some kind. What puzzles me is that you say the drive is not accessible, and yet Norton was able to scan it and find some infections and you were also able to run chkdsk on it as well. If it was inaccessible, Norton shouldn't have been able to see it either. Something weird is up. You might need to run disk recovery tools on it.

A:E:\ is not accessible. Access is denied

Hello Thira, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You may just need to take ownership of and setting permissions to "Allow" your account "Full control" of the drive and it's contents to have access afterwards.

(easier option via context menu)
Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 8

(manual option)
Take Ownership of a File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 8
Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi,
A while ago I bought a Maxtor Basics 500gb External Hardrive, I installed it and it worked fine for about 6 months. 3 days ago went to access the hardrive and it a message popped up saying G:\ is not accessible, Access is Denied.

I have tried many things to solve this problem so far, none of them have worked.

I'm running on Windows Vista Ultimate

All of my Games and Music files are stored on there and i really need to get it running again.

Please help

A:G:\ is not accessible, access is denied.

Most likely, the NTFS permissions on the drive have been altered. Try this: Click Start
Click Computer
Right-click G:\ and choose Properties
Click the Security tab
Click the Advanced button
Click the Owner tab
Click the Edit button
Select your username from the list
Check the box that says "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects"
Click OK and keep clicking on the affirmative option(s) until you're back to Windows Explorer
Try to access the drive again

A:G:\ is not accessible - Access is denied

For any one who has a problem similar:

A tech from work advised me to connect the drive to a machine with XP Pro as Vista or XP home edition was guaranteed not to be able to do what I needed. I hooked up the disk drive to an XP Pro machine. This allowed me to turn off a parameter in the security tab which then allowed me to go to Properties, choose security. I gave that account full priveleges to the drive. I then reselected Properties and went to the Owner tab and I then set the Administrtaor account to be the Owner with full priveleges. I then added an account Everyone and gave it full access to the drive. The account settings were reset by XP Pro and now I have full access to the drive.

I bought a second drive and have an off site backup arrangement that will be rotated monthly.

Hellelujah and I really struggle with Vista Home edition not being able to reset the owner property for me.

I cannot access a bunch of my own files. I remember doing something trying to fix this a month or so ago. I naturally google all my problems so i dont have to take time away from people like you who are reading this. google usually solves everything. however i cant find a clear answer this time.

somehow i created a user called adminstrator that i cant get rid of either while trying to gain control over my own files. vista is absolute bleep.

also on a completely unrelated note, i noticed today that i have 3 or 4 iexplore.exe's running at one time....they are only there when i have my internet opened. its slowing down IE8 so bad..plz dont suggest a different browser cause ive tried others and they fail, IE8 has been doing great for me till this problem came up yesterday.

thanks in advance for any help.

I would recomend running malwarebytes and or AVG. As far as getting around the Admin account, the BC TOS prohibits us from from helping defeat existing security measures: No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures

I am not able to access my hard drive. When I try to manage any part of the drive the Microsoft Management Console tells me that the function is not supported on the system. I have read various other threads with this problem but every solution was just
to Take Ownership which would work except Windows Security refuses to grant me access to anything with a security symbol next to it. Mind you I have enabled the administrator account using the command prompt and I am doing all this on safe mode. Any suggestions?

A:C:\ is not accessible Access is denied

Hi,
Please try the following steps:
1) If you can access cmd, you can reset the security settings in Vista/Windows 7 with the following command: "secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose" (no quotes.) To see what this command does, go here: How do I restore
security settings to the default settings?
 
NOTE: If you can't access cmd when logged in, use this guide System Recovery Options. You can get to the command line when you access the System Recovery Options screen.
 
2) This command seems to give the ownership issue a kick up the backside, even though it seems nothing has changed. Go to Explorer, right click on C: and go to Properties.
 
3) Go to the Security tab and then Advanced.
 
4) Go to the Owner tab. Now you should be able to click Edit.
5) If you don't have Administrators in the list under where it says "Change owner to:" then go to "Other users or groups". If you do, go straight to step 7.
 
6) On Others users or groups type in "Administrators" (no quotes) in the bottom box. Click Check Name and then OK.
 
7) Click Administrators and then OK. You've now given yourself ownership of C:! (As long as your account is an Administrator, that is.)
 
8) Click OK on the "Advanced Security Settings..." window to get back to the Properties window. You should now have a list of the Permissions and so on where before you only had something about how you couldn't view permissions. Progress, eh?
 
9) You may need to add in the Adminstrators group to edit their permissions. To do this, click "Edit" and then "Add" and type "Administrators" (no quotes) in the bottom box. Then hit Check Name and then OK.
 
10) Click Administrators in the list and tick the box in the Allow column next to "Full control".
 
11) Click Apply, you'll likely get a bunch of error messages about how this can't be applied to some files and folders. Just OK through them all. Once done, you should have access to your C: drive once more!

First try a System Restore to a time before you uninstalled Eset. Then use the Eset Uninstaller to uninstall Eset.
If that fails, Enable the Hidden Administrator account. Log out of your user account and log in as the Admin. Create a new user with admin rights. Log out of Admin and log in as the new user, and see if you can access C: now.

Hi,
 
I suggest you disable UAC to check if it is the cause.
 
Disable UAC
==========
1. Click the Start Button, type "User account control" and press Enter.
2. When the User account control settings box appears, move the slider to Never notify.
3. Click OK.
 
If it does not work, I suggest you check the permission for your Drive E.
 
Take ownership and change the permission for Drive E
===========
1.   Right click on Drive E and click Properties.
2.   Switch to Security tab, click Edit and Add to add your user account, if it is not listed. Assign the full control permission for your own account and click OK.
3.   Click Advanced, switch to Ownership tab and click Edit button.
4.   Highlight your user account and click Apply, OK.

The drives Master File Table has been corrupted, hence the RAW filesystem instead of NTFS. You will need to recover your files from the drive, then reformat the drive or partition that is corrupt.

It is a slow process, as you said. But it is better than losing the data.

Just upgraded from XP to 7. No problems until I tried to look at C (the only drive) in Windows Explorer and got the above error message. I am logged on as an administrator. Right click to Properties works, and administrators have Allow checked for all permissions. Tried changing owner of drive (with all subcontainers and objects) from TrustedInstaller to administrator user I am logged on as, but no change. Tried a suggestion I saw to add "grant full admin control" option to registry, but that seems to apply only to folders, not drives. Check Disk says clean. Files listed under Documents (all stored on C) are visible and available in a normal way, but the drive itself cannot be opened. Have restarted after each change, but no luck. Any suggestions?

You will have to:1) Take ownership of the files/folders2) Then give yourself "Full Control" over the files/foldersTo do this (in XPHome) you'll have to boot into "Safe Mode" (by tapping F8 as Windows starts to load).Once in Safe Mode, you'll be able to right click on the files, select the Properties tab, and then select the Security tab.At the bottom of the Security tab is a button for "Advanced", click on it - then click on the Owner tab. Make yourself the Owner of the files/folders by double clicking on your user name.Then click OK to exit the dialog. Then, go back in and give yourself "Full Control" in the Security tab.You may note that this doesn't always carry down through the directory structure. The solution is to do it manually to each level - a real PITA, but it gets the job done.FWIW - here's an Access Denied HowTo with more details: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/42756/how-to-fix-an-access-denied-errors/

A:partition on hdd is not accessible. Access is denied

Hello zillah, welcome to Seven Forums!



Using "Administrator" in any fashion for a user account in Windows 7 is a very bad idea as that is a name reserved for Windows' use and will cause untold errors/issues along the way.

Hello people,
I hope somebody can put me in the right direction here.

For some unknown reason i have come to my computer and whenever i click on the C: My computer or any icon on my desktop or try and edit any file (delete etc) i get the pop up message C:\ is not accessible access is denied Location is not available.

I thought this might have something to do with user accounts however I am the only user and administrator of the laptop and have all wrights, box's ticked.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

I have a folder on my desktop that I created about a month ago. Nothing is really in it, just some video files. Im trying to delete the sub folders within it, and it gives me the message that 'The Folder Not Accessible' It says that I have to have Admin permission to delete the contents. Im the only user on my lap top though. What I have tried so far.

I have manually attempted to take ownership of the files through cmd prmpt, it tells me Access Denied.

I downloaded the Take Ownership program and tried it that way, no luck

Any ideas on what I can do, any why its locking me out?

I have skimmed through the forums and seen a few other "solved" threads with the same problem, however the solution is not working for me.

Hello Redithrum, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is your user account an administrator type, and not a standard user account?

If you are an administrator, then you might see if using the free program Unlocker may be able to delete it.

Hope this helps,

I previously had Windows XP Professional on my computer, but now i've recently installed Windows XP Home Edition and im not able to open my 'My Documents' folder. its tell me that the file is not accesible and access is denied. i tried going into tools, folder options, view and advanced settings but i didnt see a the box that said simple file sharing. i think that feature is only available on Windows XP Professional. Is there a way i can gain access to my 'My Documents' folder on Windows XP Home Edition. your feedback will be gladly appreciated.
 

A:File Is Not Accessible : Access Denied

I'm confused. You installed XP Home over XP Pro? Or installed it to a different drive/partition? A little more information would be helpful.

Please help me find Documents and settings, I used to be able to access this using Xp, but now with Vista I cannot.I want to see cookies and temp internet files that were stored on my computer. I am an Administrator and need to access these files, to see where and what some users on my PC are up to and what websites they visit. This may sound nasty, but I had already lost one PC by trusting the other users, and were disappointed to find them abusing my PC and downloading stuff that infected the whole drive. Please can someone tell me the best way to do this and how to get into the files on my drive?
Thanx for your support and help,
Petty
 

A:Solved: Documents &amp; Settings-Cannot access

Document and Settings folder is a Hidden System folder that is used by the system only for the pre-Vista programs. All user data is stored under the "User Name" under the "Users" folder. A lot of the temp file folders are now system level and the users including the Admin users do NOT have access.

If you are that concerned about other users I would NOT allow them to use yours and get another that they can trash.

Possibly this is related to another thread I've just asked about regarding a problem installing Java, or it might be an entirely separate issue.

While trying to deal with the other problem I attempted to access the Document and Settings shortcut which is in my Drive C and get an error that Access is Denied. I've never seen this message before but it doesn't seem right since I never have set up that restriction in my system.

Could it be related to my other issue, and how do I gain access to this folder?

My laptop died a couple of weeks ago. A friend of mine tested the laptop hard-drive and apparently the disk is non-bootable (he's in IT so did the analysis with a devide to test the hard-drive directly) and corrupted. So I put the hard-drive in an enclosure kit and I'm using it to retrieve some of the files in the disk.

The problem is that I can't access the 'Documents and Settings' folders because I can't boot the disk and I guess i need to start the system with my profile password. Is there a way I can access the files in my profile folder?

With a corrupted disc there's no way to predict what files will still be readable.

You will not be able to access 'Documents and Settings' if the drive contained only Vista or 7; in those OSes 'Documents and Settings' is a junction point (not a folder) whose purpose is to allow old programs to access folders/files that used to be there but in Vista and 7 are in C:\Users. Can you access <drive>:\Users?

I have tried Computer Management > Shared Folders > Shares but when i right click there is no option for remove the share. (not sure if its a hidden share) or permissions have been changed to someone else in order to copy data over, or the shop linked my hard drive to a laptop with Vista and changed permissions in order for them to copy data.

How would i remove this so i can access My Documents??

I have tired searching for videos, files and folders within My Documents and it cant find anything from within there when i know there is!!

Any help would be great

A:Access Denied for My Documents

Have you tried taking ownership of the share?

In the advanced option of the shared folder. I am fairly sure simple file sharing will have to be disabled.

And if that fails take it back to the shop and tell them to fix it.

This sort of thing happens when you remove the drive and hook it up to another system and try to copy the contents of that hard drive.
