  1. One Drive permission problem

    I am sure that this has come up before: I use One Drive as a backup, but I keep getting an error message which tells me that there is "No access permission to the item" and that I should "Ensure you have the right permission" completely unhelp without telling you how to do it!.I have tried looking in Help, but the solutions do not seem to address my issue.Is there a straightforward way to resolve this problem? I now have 18 sync issues and the list is getting longer!Thanks.

  2. Permission issue, shared drive Windows 10.


    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We can understand your concern. However, we would need some more information regarding the issue.

    1. May I know the exact error message?
    2. Have you shared all hard drives or any particular folder within the particular hard drive?

    Since you have mentioned that you are getting error related to permission issue, please refer to the troubleshooting steps provided by “Azee N” dated June 2nd 2010 on
    Providing permission to drive and try
    providing permission to the drive.

    If the issue still persists, we would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to re-map the drive.

    1. Disconnect the drive by right click on the drive and select disconnect (if the drive is mapped).
    2. Then re-map the drive by referring to Map a network drive
      and check if it resolves the issue.

  3. No permissions


    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.

    One Drive permission problem

    Default drive permissions

    Hi Jortus

    If you need to reset default permissions on that drive, here are the steps:

    Click your Start Button, then just type cmd

    Form the resulting list, right click Command Prompt and choose 'Run as Administrator'

    Paste this command into Command Prompt and press Enter

    icacls "D:\" /t /q /c /reset
