    Destination folder access denied. You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy...


    So I own a laptop with Windows 10 as the operating system. For some reason, I can transfer files from my external hard drive, or flash drives to the laptop, but when it comes to transferring files from my laptop to an external hard drive or flash drive, I get this annoying message, Destination folder access denied: You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy this file. I would like to give you guys an idea of how ridiculous this is. So I have a word document called sample 1 that is saved on my external hard drive. I plug in the hard drive and transfer the word document to my laptop

    :)

  3. Destination folder access denied - You need permission to perform this action

    I have just purchased a new PC and have connected an external hard drive to it, which I also used on my old PC.

    I am trying to copy a file to the external hard drive from the new computer's C drive but every time I get the message "Destination folder access denied - You need permission to perform this action".

    I am the owner and the administrator of both the new computer, the old computer... in fact, everything! How can it deny me access and how can I solve this problem?
