  1. Permission to access the drive.


    Dear Community,


    I wanted to change the permission status of the drive for a user account, instead, I changed for the administrative account.


    Just need to reactive the account.


    Please help me to activate it, as I go for the settings I see a message as below.


    I don't understand what to do next.


    The help will be really appreciated.

  2. Permission issue, shared drive Windows 10.

    Hi,

    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.

    Regards,

  3. Cannot access path, no permission

    Hello cgherman, my name is Irisdiel and I am an independent advisor.

    I suggest you follow the instructions down below and visit the link I have provided for you to follow more solutions in case method 1 doesn't help.

    The causes of your problem may be:

    -You do not have permissions to the file or the file location.

    -The file is on a location that is not currently accessible like a network location or an external drive that is not currently connected to the PC.

    -The file has been moved or deleted.

    -The file or shortcut is corrupt.

    -The file may be blocked by Windows.

    -Your antivirus software may be blocking the file.

    Method 1: Check the permission of the file or folder

    -Right-click the file or folder, and then select Properties.

    -Select the Security tab.

    -Under Group or User names, click your name to see the permissions you have. (The screenshot for this step is listed below).

    -Select Edit, and then select to check the check boxes for the permissions that you need, and then select OK. (The screenshot for this step is listed below).

    Refer to:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/266924...


    Hope this helps!

    Thank you and good luck,

    Regards- .

  4. Permission to access the drive.

    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.
