  1. Windows denying me access to USB Drive to back up.


    I keep getting an error message saying I do not have authority to access by e-drive, when trying to back up files to a memory stick. It tells me I have no permission to access the folder, when I am selecting the E-Drive, and provides a link to the security tab, which opens up the E-Drive Properties General Tab. There are no further instructions.I cannot open any memory stick or external hard drive. They are all on bitlocker but I have the passwords.Please could someone help. I desperately need to back up.Thank you.

    :)

    Access is denied when connecting USB drive

    I am running WIn 10 Pro on an HP ProDesk 400 G4.
    When I attach a thumb drive or Western Digital Passport hard drive to the USB port, the drive is assigned a letter, but if I try to access it, I get the message “You don’t currently have permission to access this folder. Click Continue to permanently get access
    to this folder.” When I click the Continue button, the next message that appears says “You have been denied permission to access this folder. To gain access to this folder, you will need to use the
    security tab.” When I click on the security tab link, the Properties of the drive are displayed, but there is no Security Tab displayed, only General, Tools, Hardware, Sharing and Customize tabs. I am logged in
    as an administrator, so I am not sure why I am being denied access. I have plugged the drives into other systems (including Win 10 machines) and have had no problem accessing the drives and data. Only on this desktop system, which because my old desktop system
    crashed, had become my primary machine. I also found that if I boot into Safe Mode (via MSCONFIG), I can access the drive and data fine. So how can I fix this so I can access my USB drives in normal mode? I appreciate all suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    Step By Step from vista:
    From admin cmd prompt

    1. diskpart
    1a. list disk
    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    6. active

    Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk
