  1. Ways to Fix Folder Access Denied Error in Windows


    I created a new user account for my work about 1 month ago, but today I deleted it and all files from this user account are encrypted, and I can't open any photos or word files with my main administrator account. I tried to give permission, but it doesn't work. Furthermore, I used cmd to decrypt, but it doesn't work as well. When I try to open the old user's files the following message is displayingYou do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of this folder I will be very grateful If you will help me to resolve this problem.

    :)

    Error Access Denied while acessing the folders from User> AppData folders on Windows 10

    Hi,

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

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing with access files and folders.

    Do let us know the complete error code/ error message of this issue?

    As you have tried with providing the permissions to each folder and issue persists after the restart, try the below and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Try to disable the third party anti-virus software if installed any and check.

    Step 2: As, as a work around, I suggest you to enable the built-in administrator account and check if this issue persists.

    Steps to enable Built-in administrator.

      • Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.
      • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open Command Prompt.
      • Type the following command and hit Enter:
    • net user administrator /active: yes (Check for the spaces)
       4. Now log off from the current user and try to login to the administrator account that is enabled.  

    Note: Please follow the same steps and type net user administrator /active: no to disable admin account after the troubleshooting is done. 

    Step 3: I suggest you to refer to the below Microsoft article with 3-diffrent issues related to accessing the files and folders and check if it helps.

    "Access Denied" or other errors when you access or work with files and folders in Windows

    (Applies to Windows 10 as well)

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue to assist you further.
