    Access is denied when connecting USB drive

    I am running WIn 10 Pro on an HP ProDesk 400 G4.
    When I attach a thumb drive or Western Digital Passport hard drive to the USB port, the drive is assigned a letter, but if I try to access it, I get the message “You don’t currently have permission to access this folder. Click Continue to permanently get access
    to this folder.” When I click the Continue button, the next message that appears says “You have been denied permission to access this folder. To gain access to this folder, you will need to use the
    security tab.” When I click on the security tab link, the Properties of the drive are displayed, but there is no Security Tab displayed, only General, Tools, Hardware, Sharing and Customize tabs. I am logged in
    as an administrator, so I am not sure why I am being denied access. I have plugged the drives into other systems (including Win 10 machines) and have had no problem accessing the drives and data. Only on this desktop system, which because my old desktop system
    crashed, had become my primary machine. I also found that if I boot into Safe Mode (via MSCONFIG), I can access the drive and data fine. So how can I fix this so I can access my USB drives in normal mode? I appreciate all suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    USB drive "Access denied" error

    Hey all,

    I'm using an OCZ diesel 4gb usb memory stick to transfer some stuffs between my house computer and the school computers and I tried to open up the drive through My Computer on the school's computers and it continually says access denied. It's never done that before so I'm slightly confused. I opened up its properties and it just has everything as blank. Is this a sign that the data on the stick went corrupt, or is the drive in the death process OR is this just another wonderful example of how wonderfully terrible my school's computers are?

    Thanks *Smile Access denied when accessing to USB drive :)

    Edit: I just switched to a different computer in the school and it works now??? I'm definitely not complaining but now am more curious? Anyone up for posing possible reasons as to why? I know I read that there are a few viruses or 3rd party apps that can conflict with USB drives. Unfortunately, I can't test anything because all admin stuffs are blocked.
