    It appears you don't have permission to access this file. Check the permissions and try again.


    I completely wrecked my previous laptop which had windows backup turned on. So, i took the internal hard drive out from the laptop and put in a hard drive enclosure. Now when I tried to restore files from the backup to my new laptop, whenever i try to access any restored file i get the following message: "It appears you don't have permission to access this file. Check the permissions and try again". Is there any way i can fix?

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We understand the difficulties you are facing with the Photo App, while accessing the photos from the external drive. In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below.

    • Did you try to access the photos from a different PC using Photo app?
    • What is the Windows 10 version and Build installed?(Type
      winver in Windows search/Run command)
    • What is the version of the Photo App installed?

    However, we would suggest you to perform these methods.

    Method 1: Steps to reset the app and then check if you are able to access the photos.

    1. Press Windows + I key from the keyboard to open Windows
      Settings.
    2. Then select Apps and click on
      Apps & features from the left pane.
    3. Select the Photo App from the list and click on
      Advanced Option.
    4. On the page that opens with information about the app, select
      Reset.
    5. Restart the PC and then try to access photos on the external drive using Photo App.

    Method 2: As you have mentioned that there are over 100GB of data, let us try a test on a sample folder and then proceed.

    1. Create a folder on the external hard drive. Copy few picture files to the folder.
    2. Try accessing this folder from Photos app.
    3. If you are getting the same error, give full permissions to only the folder. Follow method 3.

    Method 3:
    give permission to the newly created folder in the external drive.

    1. Right click on the folder created in the external drive, then select
      properties,
    2. Select security tab and click
      Advanced.
    3. The window that pops up should show the current owner. Click "Change." The "Select User or Group" pop up box appears.
    4. In the text box, type in
      everyone
      , and hit the "Check Names" button. Your name will be replaced with everyone and then click
      OK.
    5. The box disappears, sending you back to the Advanced Security Settings window.
    6. A new tick box appears below owner, with the text "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects". Select this tick box.
    7. Also select the tick box "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object",
    8. Make sure that "everyone" appears on the Permission entries window, if not, click add. The same box that appears in step 4 shows up again. Type everyone, click "Check Names"
      and then "OK"
    9. Hit Apply.

    We await your response.

  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.

    I tried to access some .jpg files on my computer which I am the administrator but it won't allow me to access my own files, so why can't I access them? Please Help me figure out why I get the following error message: "lt looks like you don't have permission
