    File Permission Issue Moving File from XP to 10


    I have a Windows 10 pc Dell Inspiron and an old XP Dell 8400. I was moving my music files over from the XP to the 10. About 90% of them worked, but the other 10% failed with a message of not having administrator permission to move some of the files. There were a few thousand and they came from multiple sources - an older pc before the XP 3.1 maybe, files I ripped from my cd collection, files downloaded from Amazon, Freegal, ITunes, etc. I couldn't find out a common issue that was giving me the error. I looked at the Properties of files that worked and some that didn't and it looked the same. Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

  2. File permission issues in Windows 10

    Hi Rogers,

    The warning message that you received upon opening the Word file may indicate that you don't have the permission to access the file. To take ownership of the file, I suggest that you perform one of the methods below:

    Adjust the User Account Control settings to rule out any
    UAC restriction errors. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • TypeChange User Account Control settings in the search box and press
      Enter.
    • Move the slider to Never notify.
    • Click OK and check if you encounter the same issue.

    Manually take ownership to grant access to the file. Assuming that you're signed in as administrator, follow the steps below on how to take ownership of the file:

    • Open File Explorer and locate the affected file or folder.
    • Right-click the file or folder, then select Properties.
    • Under the Security tab, click on the Advanced button.
    • Under Enter the object name to select box, type in the name of the current user.
    • Click on the Check Names button to validate the account.
    • If the account matches, click OK.
    • Click OK again.

    Once you're done, check if you encounter the same error.

    Update this thread for the result of the permission change.

  3. cannot access file/or permissions

    I have a file i need to run on Windows 7 Home Premium. I get the error message saying "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

    So I right click and choose Properties to access the permissions but I cannot. In the Security tab I get a message saying, " You do not have permission to view or edit this objects permission settings.".

    Next I boot into the Windows 7 Hidden Administrator Mode - and even with this I get all the same error messages.

    Please help me as I really need to run This file.

    Windows 10 File Permission Issue

    There is a possibility that the files that you are trying to open are corrupted. Just to follow up, please answer the following questions:

    • Which application are you using to open the photos?
    • What is the file type of the photos that you're trying to open?

    We suggest that you check the permissions of the folder where the photos that you're trying to view are located at. To do so, follow the steps below:

    1. Right-click on the folder and select Properties. A pop-up box will appear.

    2. Go to the Security tab.

    3. Under the Security tab, check if all the options under
    Permissions for SYSTEM are allowed/checked.

    Feel free to ask back any questions and let us know how it goes.
