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

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

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?

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

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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

Hi. I had applied access restriction through the security tab on a folder. The setting had been set on each subfolder and every individual file within them. Recently I installed new windows and when I changed the access setting to "Allow" it would only apply to the parent folder and an error comes that show "Access Denied to ..." for each folder inside it. Which means I have to edit settings each single file and folder. Its a big trouble because there are hundreds of files inside. Please Help.

On my previous Windows XP installation, I moved the default location of My Documents to Drive D. The idea is so that there will be less files to back up when I reinstall Windows XP on Drive C. This I have done a few times and everything worked fine... until now!

I reinstalled my computer, moved the default location of My Documents to the existing one on Drive D, and so far, everything seems normal. One particular folder, though, I cannot access. When I double click on it, it says Access is denied. When I hover the mouse, it says the folder is empty. This folder contains the files I use in my business.

What should I do???

Thank you.

I right-clicked on the folder and checked permissions. They were all grayed out. I added my individual username and selected Full Control, and the check marks for that username are now in full black (not grayed out). I went into Advanced and selected "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" which is unchecked by default. I clicked "Apply" and "OK."

But I still can't use any programs in subfolders, and the root folder still have a lock symbol on it. The propagation did not take effect, as all security checkmarks are grayed out on subfolders.

Thanks for any help.

You probably just need to take ownership of the folder so that you can have full access to it. The link below shows you how to take ownership.

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? You can put a shortcut in Startup to whatever you wish.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Hi, I just recently moved a folder out of a larger folder. The larger folder was part of the video library. Now when I got to the video library the folder I moved out of it is still there but now it won't let me open it or delete it. I believe it is empty because the new version is where it is supposed to be with no problems but I'd like to get the bad folder out of my video library. The error tells me that the folder is not available and Access denied. Any ideas?

This is a permissions issue but are you sure that you want to move library folders? It can cause all sorts of problems. Is there a specific reason for the move?

I think I have a problem with my hard drive. I get a black screen with a blinking cursor, and it beeps once, when the Windows logo is normally displayed while booting up. I put the HDD into another computer as a slave, and I can access the contents, so the file system is intact.

The only thing is, under Documents and Settings of my slave HDD, the folder with my username that has all my documents says its size is 0. And when I try to double click it I get an access denied error. Is it only saying the folder data size is 0 because I can't access it? Or did I somehow lose all my data under My Documents? How can I change the security settings so I have access to it?

A:Access denied error for My Documents folder

Hi Anom,

I would imagine that your data is intact and you cannot see the file-size due to the access issues, as you quite rightly pointed-out.

I was under the impression that you could right-click on the folder and select properties, then security tab, advanced, Owner, select your active account and tick the box that says 'Replace owner on subcontainers and objects'. Press OK.

I am using Windows XP Pro. I have three user profiles on our family computer. They all have administrator rights. On my profile when I click on the "program files" folder in windows explorer I can view all the program folders and files. When I go into the other profiles and click on the "program files" folder I get an error message that says "c:\program files is not accessible. Access is denied." I know that in the past I have not had any trouble viewing this folder in any profile. It only happens on the program files folder not any other folders. Anyone know of a solution to this?

You need to take ownership of the file. If you actually have admin right your will be able to do this. Once you have ownership you can change the permissions.

Hi Bob,
This issue can be caused due to the incorrect permission settings for the administrators group.
I would like to suggest you perform the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.
1. In the "Start" menu, locate "Command Prompt". Right-click and choose "Run as Administrator". If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
2. Type the following commands, then press "Enter" to execute them one by one. Please note the space before the command and its parameter.

From the link above,

If you try to use slmgr.vbs /dlv to view the licensing status, you receive the following message:

Error: 0x80070005 Access denied: the requested action requires elevated privileges

It's possible that it sees the new processor as a new system and since this is an OEM (System Builder) it isn't eligible to be moved to a new system. Or just the multiple hardware changes triggered an error.

You can try phone activation, and if it doesn't work the first time try again but talk to a person and explain that you had to replace your processor and other parts but it's the same motherboard.

I did the services.msc and tried to actually stop and restart the windows firewall and it brings up Windows could not stop the Windows Firewall on Local Computer. Error 5: access denied.

She is the admin on this laptop and it seems to still have limited access to certain properties such as turning on and off the firewall. i tried shutting off mcafee's firewall and then getting into the windows firewall and still no luck.

I'm also wondering if the Software from the HP support assistant is causing some sort of confliction.

A:Windows Firewall/Mcafee Firewall_ Error 5: Access is Denied

There have been reported connectivity problems from McAfee users and the best solution is to fully uninstall it How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee products using the Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR) and this is the link for the MCPR and it's advocated that the tool is run twice after the uninstall via Progs and Features

You are also better off to leave it off and use something like MSE Microsoft Security Essentials | Protect against viruses, spyware, and other malware as McAfee isn't the best of AVs.

i got an alert saying i should enable '' security center '' so i go too msconfig and it says it is stopped, i then go too '' services '' and try to start it and it says '' error 5 access denied cannot start on local computer '' i use Windows 7 how do i resolve this?? i have tried everything, by the way this only happened after i downloaded and eventually uninstalled Microsoft security essentials, and i heard of someone else having almost exactly the same issues.

A:windows 7 error 5 access denied cannot open security center

What firewall do you have?

You said you uninstalled Microsoft Security Essentials .... Why? Did it work? Did it disable Windows Defender (as it should have)?
Do you have another Anti-virus program running?

Wanted to report to the world that I was getting this failure during automatic updates for Windows XP Home edition.

After a day of trying to follow the Microsoft suggestions, I finally tried to execute the individual updates manually. When doing so, I had an error copying the file c:\.....\branches.inf.

I found a post on this site by MOXYLL ( in which she suggested changing the following file to read/write from read only:

Guess what?!?! It worked!! All my Windows Update failures went away.

Now if I could somehow reclaim my day! ... ARGH!

Does the error message same as the below image.

If above message has been displayed then, you should know the fact that your hard drive failure is imminent and may die sooner or later. This means you could lose all of your data i suggest you backup your personal files to external drive. If the computer is in warranty, you can contact your computer manufacturer for assistance in replacing your hard disk with a new one when the Windows has detected a hard disk problem. You can check health SMART report of the hard disk drive and repair surface errors that are not mechanic errors with your hard disk drive manufacturer diagnostic tool.

Hey guys,
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
I can not start Windows Firewall, Diagnostic Policy Service, Diagnostic Service Host, or Diagnostic System Host. When I try and start them manually in services.msc, it gives me Error Code 5: Access denied. Both BFE and Windows Firewall Authorization driver are running. I am logged in as an administrator, and I have already allowed full control of these services for the Administrator accounts and the user "SYSTEM" in Regedit. If you need more information, please let me know. This is my first post, so I don't know if there is any other information that you need. Thanks!

MSE 2 beta2. MBAM Pro3. Trend Micro Web Protection Add-on.I got the error in Action Center.I went to services and tried to manually start the service. There I got the error message.I found an old post, describing the same problem.

A:Security Center service cannot start on Windows 7: Error 5 Access Denied

Most third party security AV/AS software will disable Windows security software in favor of their own. This is normal. Using more than one anti-virus security program at one time is not recommended. They can interfere with each other giving you gaps in coverage, cause conflicts that lead to system crashes, and tend to slow your system down by using excessive resources. Pick one that you like and stick with it.

i have two computers, my main desktop and a laptop. For my work i sync my files between the two over my home network using Free File Sync (ffs).

For some reason ffs will sync across from my laptop to my desktop but not from my desktop to laptop. All the sync settings are set to copy both ways, ffs is running as admin and i am the only user of both computers so they are both running as admin.
I have set up homegroup between the two and i can easily copy any file type between both computers both ways. Permissions as far as i can tell are set to allow home groups, admins and all users.
But ffs still will only sync one way from my desktop to my laptop... any ideas? (i am given the: windows error code 5: access denied message whenever i click 'sync')

Windows XP has reached end of life 2 years ago... It is an insecure Operating System and should no longer be used especially online.
The Dimension 2400 is weak hardware (Pentium 4 Processor, IDE hard drive, DDR RAM) from 2003! so 13 years old! Its not worthwhile running a modern Operating System on it and below minimum system requirements.
If on a budget you are best to buy a second hand OptiPlex 780 with a Windows 7 OEM license (which can be used for a free Windows 10 upgrade).

I have a new Dell computer with windows xp operating system. My old computer was a gateway with windows xp also. The mother board on the gateway crashed and I could not find a replacement thus I purchased the new dell. I extracted the hard drive from the gateway and installed in an external drive case. All works well and I am able to retreve data from the gate way hard drive with one exception. While the hard drive was installed in the gateway I elected to make some of the folders private, ie right click on folder, click on sharing and security and clicking on private. This worked fine in the gateway but when I installed in external hard drive I am getting an "access denied" error message when trying to open with the Dell. How can this be fixed? Thanks

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).

I'm having trouble getting my Documents & Settings folder to copy into my external drive for backup purposes. The external drive already has this folder in place and the proper files and folders within D/S as I have been routinely backing it up for the last few years. However, now when I try to Copy Folder To the external drive, I get the error message that access to the J drive (external drive) is denied. As you can see from the pic below, the D/S folder on my hard drive is apparently locked. I don't recall locking it and how do I unlock it so that I can copy to to the external drive?

This folder is not supposed to be locked according to the manufacturer of the software that uses it.

Click start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore

Choose a date from before the problem began and follow the directions on screen.

This will not affect your data but will reverse any updates if any you may have done so you might need to do the updates again.

A:folder access denied ? please help

The "documents and setting" folders on a Windows 7 machine, are system folders and are NOT to be messed with by the user.

Even a Admin can NOT remove them, they are there for the "System" to use when a program written to use "documents and setting " and will be redirected to the Users folders.

You may want to have access to every folder but you will NOT, unless you turn off the built in protection. Then you are on your own and will really mess things up by doing what you are trying to do.

I was playing with user accounts on my new pc. I have 2 administrator accounts and a guest account. I wanted to set up a folder with my personal pictures so that only I have an access to it. I unchecked the "use simple sharing" option in folder options and then clicked on the folder in question, and in properties selected the other administrator account name and denied the access to the folder. I switched the accounts to that other administrator and shure enough, he could not access the folder. I logged back in as myself, allowed the other administrator access again BUT... it turns out I don't have the access to the folder either! In the security folder I have all the permissions turned on for all the administrators, and for my name on the network (I set up a home network) but access is denied. What's wrong? How do I fix it?

If you need app data folder, try the one under your user name. I don't know but that may be a protected system file. Go into folder options and uncheck "hide protected system files". maybe that will do it. While you're in there check the "show hidden files" and access app data under your own user name. Good luck.

It does sound like a permissions issue, but you have specifically asked not to go there , so I will not.
What I would do, since it works in safe mode is suggest a clean boot.
If it works in clean boot, you can follow the instructions to find the cause.
Safe Mode works with basically just drivers, so its not a drivers issue. Clean boot works without any start up programs, anti virus etc. Lets hope it is some software that is the cause of the problem
How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
To be on the safe side you may also want to run a full anti virus scan and download and run an updated, full scan of malwarebytes.
If none of these ideas work, try a system restore from before the problem started.

A:destinatin folder access denied

Hi LiL L -

Welcome back to TSF.

The "TrustedInstaller" is the owner of record of the Program Files folder and all within. You do not have "permission" by him/her to edit any files.

As you know, you must first take ownership of the folder - but then set the appropriate file permissions. This can be accomplished tediously via a series of screens through Vista or in the following manner:

Bring up an Elevated command prompt via:
START | type cmd into the start search box | right-click on cmd (cmd.exe) | select "Run as Administrator" | next to the prompt type the following exactly as it appears except substituting the filename and username in the command:

takeown /f %systemdrive%\Program Files [hit enter]
(space after takeown and before %systemdrive%)

icacls %systemdrive%\Program Files /grant username:f [hit enter]
(space after icacls; before /grant and after /grant)

Good Luck to you..

I'm trying to delete some files from Steam. However, I'm frustratingly greeted with this damn message "Destination folder access denied. You need permission to perform this action."

Permission from who? I'm the only account/admin on my computer. This is not the only time I have received some kind of error message reporting to me I need permission/higher access--it's also happened when I tried to "Immune" my computer from known viruses using Spybot - Search & Destroy.

Can anyone help me please? Thanks!

(Please forgive the post in 2 different categories).

Question: from which folder are you trying to delete files? Anything in "C:\Program Files", "C:\Program Files (x86)" or "C:\Windows" is generally more protected than they where in older versions of Windows.

If the files you are trying to delete in a different folder, then perhaps you are having trouble because they are still open by Steam? In many case, when a program open a file, it "locks" it for exclusive use until it is closed. Try shutting down Steam and then try and delete again.

Sorry to say this, but have you configured this with HomeGroup? Try starting from scratch with HomeGroup and make your LAN with that, it'll be easier for P2P and file transfers/cloud storage, hop this helped.

ok i formatted my system and i had backed up my pictures ont oa secondary harddrive, forgetting that they were encrypted by windows XP hence making them only viewable by that account but now i am noit able to open the photos at all, it says access is denied? how can i solve this issue? are there any third party applications that can break the encryption?

A:Access Denied on a backed up folder

I had something similar a while back with some folders I was trying to browse from an Image created with Acronis.

You should be able to right click on the folder and go to 'Properties'. Select the 'Security' tab and then click 'Advanced'. From there, click the 'Owner' tab and change the owner to yourself, click Apply then OK. Then click 'Add', 'Advanced' then 'Find Now', scroll to your name then click OK, then OK again and make sure there is a tick in all the boxes under Allow. Click Apply then OK.

Then try again.

You may need to change your folder view to disable siimple file sharing to show the security tab...

In windows explorer, click Tools then Folder Options, then View..scroll to bottom of the list and remove the tick from 'Use simple file sharing' then click OK.

If you have Windows XP Home Edition, you will have to change the permissions whilst in safe mode.

Hope that works for you :-)

A friend's PC died on them and I'm trying to recover their pictures from the hard drive. I have a USB hard drive adapter connected to my computer and I can browse the hard drive. However, when I try to open the Owner folder, which is where everything is, I get an error saying that access is denied. Is there a way around this so I can copy the pictures?

I am having issues accessing files on a network folder on SBS 2003. I have changed permissions and ownership of the folder but issue still persists. Three people have access to this folder/files however only one of them is able to access the files while the other 2 have "access denied" message when they try opening up files.

Any suggestions on how i could go about and solve this issue for the other 2 users?

A:Destination Folder Access Denied

Hello & Welcome to Tech Guy Forum.

1. Being an adminstrator does not = being THE administrator.
Which OS? Which version if Vista? Which SP?

How have you fixed this, in the past?

2. Did you try this method?

3. Have you tried programs such as Unlocker?

4. Or other methods suggested here?

5. How about using an UBCD?

Keep us posted.

Best of success.

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.

A:Folder not accessible. Access Denied

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,

A:Destination Folder Access Denied

i've seen your issue posted on a couple of sites. After taking ownership, Access Denied still Appears.

From one site;

1. Control Panel > User accounts > Change UAC settings - drop the slider to the bottom
2. In start screen pres win key + S, type 'Local Security Policy' search and press enter
3. Go to Local Policies > Security Options, scroll to the bottom and find 'User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode' to Disabled
4. Restart PC when prompted
5. Re-add your user account to Temp permissions and re-enable the option from step 3
I cant tell you its going to work.

Here is another

I edit my external HD sometimes to change names of my files & I get this message.
Destination Folder Access Denied, then I have to click Continue, then in user accounts control it says windows needs your permission to continue & I have to click Continue again. XP didn?t give me this run around, what?s the deal with Vista? I?ve searched but can?t find a fix for this.
I?m the Admin & can?t understand why Vista is treating me like a child & making me double check what I tell it to do. Isn?t my computer a PC or is it now owned by Vista!! That?s frustration coming out but I have other small issues about user unfriendly Vista where XP was user friendly.

A:Destination Folder Access Denied

This is the new feature of Vista. Its controled by the User Account Control system and tries to act as another security layer. There have been many complaints about it being too in your face and Windows 7 version will be calmed down somewhat.

You could follow the Administrator Account and User Account Control (UAC) - Elevate Privilege Level tutorials.

Make sure you transfer your Documents and pictures etc from your current account before switching to the administator account and then transfer your files to their new home.
