    Can not save to network drive, permissions denied


    Another problem out of nowhere.

    A USB stick on a Linksys router used as a network drive.

    Suddenly, can not save to the drive, and PC says "permission denied."

    Can find no way to change permissions.

    Get error message: "An error occured while applying security information - failed to enumerate objects in the container, Access is denied."

    Checked online and no suggestions work.

    Router firmware does not need updating.

    Power cycling router makes no difference.

    Switching USB ports on the router makes no difference.

    USB stick has plenty of empty space.

    32-bit Windows 10 version 1809, build 17763.316 3 GB RAM.

    :)
     

  2. Permissions to save updated files denied

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you are facing. I will certainly help you with this.

    I suggest you to perform the below given steps and check if it resolve the permission issue.

    • Right click on the file and click on Properties.
    • Click on Security, check Owner should be "SYSTEM" in
      Advance tab.
    • Now check the save for C:\Users\<username>
    • Owner should also be "SYSTEM"
    • Check the users you signed into windows as (should be your Microsoft account) should be in the "Permissions entries" list with "Full Contol"
    • If not, Add the user you are logged in as.
    • All the folders and sub-folders below should be "owned" by the user you are logged into windows with
      importantly, have a permissions entry for "full control"
    • Check for all the related folder where you are getting same error, but for some reason that same user is missing a "Permission Entry". Add a "full control" entry for the user and you should be able to save to that folder
      and all sub-folders
    Hope this information helps. Post back with updated issue details for further help.

    Thank you.

  3. Permission denied

    Hi,

    The permission denied error normally appears if you are not using the admin account to run a specific program. To help us identify the appropriate solution to your concern, we'd like to ask for additional information. Kindly answer the following:

    • Are you running the program as administrator when the error appeared?
    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • Can you please show us a screenshot of the error message?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Permissions to save updated files denied

    I log on with my windows 10 account password. I can access Photoshop, Picasa and the windows 10 new Photos and make updates, however when I try to save I receive a permission denied and have administrator unlock file or grant permission. I have admin authority.
    If I access the apps with logon as Administrator I can save the changes. How can I get universal permission to all photo files?
