  2. Disk space - Space Sniffer Access is denied - Code 5

    I have a acer 5552 running windows 10 although this problem was there under windows 5

    I ran space sniffer and this shows 106.2GB of unaccessable space. The space sniffer console shows the files that make up this space. Here is an example

    WARN 11:18:54 - Unable to examine C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-18 (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:54 - Unable to examine C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-20 (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:55 - Unable to examine C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-21-4284531438-3182828447-3916045307-500 (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:55 - Unable to examine C:\1fa3c87dbfc77f636413226b6b67a855 (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:55 - Unable to examine C:\6d694d1fcef5cc1966113b3fd884\mousekeyboardcenter (Access is denied. - code 5)

    WARN 11:18:55 - Unable to examine C:\6d694d1fcef5cc1966113b3fd884\prereq (Access is denied. - code 5)

    All the files end with hte Access is denied - code 5

    Can I delete these to release disk space or is there anything else I can do ?

    Thanks

    Denied Access to delete files


    Thanks for suggestions. I tried AVG Remover but it found nothing; probably because I had already deleted the bulk of the files. I also tried Command and Safe Mode but both gave Denied message. So the question remains how do I get access to delete files? Would changing to MS login at Start help?

    Delete File failed; code 5 Access Denied

    [Question] Delete files with denied access with batch scripts

    'Access denied' may be because the file is open. Another cause of 'access denied' can be ownership and/or permissions. If it is permissions, try running the script as administrator.

    By the way, you don't put a space between the '/' and the option letter, and the /A option on its own like that does nothing. It is for selecting files by attribute and should be followed by a colon and list of attributes, eg. /A:RSH

    The SYSTAG.BIN file is usually created by Aomei Backupper and that may have the file open.
