  1. Permission to backup files


    When trying to back up certain files on idrive, I get a backup failure notice with some files marked:[Information] [12/01/2021 8:45:10] [[C:\ProgramData\Documents\][There is no permission to backup the folder]][Information] [12/01/2021 8:45:10] [[C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\UserGuide\][There is no permission to backup the folder]]I have tried to remove the "read only" in properties. Didn't help. How do I permit these files to be backed up?

    :)

    Denied Permission Access to Restored Files from Backup

    I think that you have exceeded my limited IT knowledge with that question (it wouldn't take much to do that!)

    Suffice it to say that the only thing that I have done is 1) bought a new PC, 2) restored files from a Western Digital backup drive, and 3) found that I could not open files that I had restored due to lack of permission rights.

    I can get permission to each file individually by using a method similar to what you suggested: Properties/Security/Advanced and adding my name as a Principal in the list along with System and Administrators.

    But I cannot do this for a group of files or a folder.

    When I open the Security tab, it says that I "must have Read permissions to view the properties of this object"

    It also lists "Owner: Unable to display current owner"

    Does that imply that there is an ownership problem, and that I need to globally take ownership of the files somehow?

  3. No permissions

    Hi,

    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.

  4. Permission to backup files

    Reset Windows 10 file permissions to default

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    • Are you receiving any error message while accessing any files?
    I suggest you to follow the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Startup troubleshooter.

    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
    • Click File > Run New Task
    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”
    • Type Powershell
    • Type the following in the Powershell prompt:
    $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest


    6. Close the Powershell window

    7. Reboot

    Method 2: If you are facing issues accessing files, then I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    This may be caused by incorrect permissions on the files.

    You can fix this using 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
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
