  1. Enable permission for folders


    My PC have some folders which can't access by me any longer. I don't know precisely what occurred with those files. On the head of that it's my PC and nobody else utilizes it.

    Error I am getting is "You Don't Have Permission to Access This Folder".

    Window 10 Home 2020 build.

    :)

  3. No permissions

    Hi,

    I would suggest you to right click on the user's folder for your profile and check if the permissions shows as "read only'. If this is the case, it might be causing the issue. In this case, I would suggest you to go to C:\User folder, right click on the
    folder with your username and follow these steps:

    • Open the properties of the main user profile folder where the files are located (such as Documents, Pictures, etc).
    • Go to the Security tab and click Advanced.
    • Check the box at the bottom of this window. It is labeled "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" and then click Ok.
    This does a one-time action that replaces the security on all the files/subfolders. It’s one-time, so you won’t find that box checked if you peek at it later. Try these steps and let us know the results for further assistance.

  4. Enable permission for folders

    Have no permissions in my own folders Windows 10

    Hello,

    Thank you contacting Microsoft Community.

    As I have understood, you are experiencing issue with no permissions in my own folders and getting message: “Destination folder access denied, you need permission to perform this action” on the system.

    I certainly understand your concern.

    I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if that helps.

    • Go to file explorer C:\Users and right click on your username.
    • Then select properties.
    • Then select Security.
    • Then select Advanced.
    • Then click enable Inheritance.
    • It will take a minute to alter all the changes.

    Once it finishes, check if it fixes the issue.

    I hope this information is helpful.

    Please do let us know if you need any further assistance, we will be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
