  2. It look like you don't have permission to view this file. Check the permissions and try again..............WHERE?

    So recently my Lumia 640 won't allow me to view my photos or videos and instead I get, "It looks like you don't have permission to view this file. Check permissions and try again."

    So where do I check permissions and how to I change them to allow me to see my pictures that I was able to see last week. Even pictures I took today cannot be viewed. Please help.

    It looks like you don't have permission to view this file. Check the permissions and try again

    Hi. I am getting the error "It looks like you don't have permission to view this file. Check the permissions and try again" on the Windows photos app while trying to view photos in an external HDD. Even the windows explorer does not show the thumbnails of
    the images.

    My PC crashed one fine day and I have to reinstall Windows by wiping the internal disk but that external HDD is untouched. After this new OS installation I am facing this permission issue. I have around 100 GB of photos but all shows the same error message
    when tried to view in Windows photos app.

    Have tried all the permissions under the 'Security' tab under properties but nothing seems to work. But If I copied a photo and pasted elsewhere other than that external HDD, I am able to view the photo. Facing the issue only with the external HDD.

    Please let me know a way to change the permission for all the 100 GB photos.

  4. It looks like you don't have permission to view this file. Check the permissions and try again

    Faulty message "It looks like you don't have permission to view this file. Check the permissions and try again."

    On windows computers in our lab.

    We have some files in a UNC path ("\\afs\..."). We need a kerberos ticket and an afs token to access this location. (AFS)

    When we want to open an image file (PNG in my tests) with Microsoft Photos, we get

    "It looks like you don't have permission to view this file. Check the permissions and try again."

    But

    * the file is readable

    * If I copy or move the file to the desktop, I can open it there.

    * It is not reproducible in every folder in \\afs\....

    After moving the file in another volume/folder in \\afs\..., I could open it there. (This folder was a homefolder for me).

    * We can open it in other programs (paint etc)

    * After opening it wit another program like paint, the slideshow of Microsoft Fotos can show the image and double-clicking on the image shows the image very brief before displaying the error "It looks like you don't have permission to view this file. Check
    the permissions and try again.".

    What extra permissions would Microsoft Photos need. In my opinion readable alone should be enough.

    If I can read the file, I expect Microsoft Photos to be able to open it.

    How can I debug this problem?

    Thanks for helping me out!
