    You Do Not Have Permission To Access This Device


    Hello, I am having an issue that I have been working on for weeks now and have been unable to find a solution.

    It seems out of the blue, my computer has denied me permission to access any and all removable media through usb. All my thumb-drives, all my sd-readers, and two phones. I always get this window:


    You Do Not Have Permission To Access This Device [​IMG]


    I have tried putting ownership to my user account, with admin status, and I get this window:


    You Do Not Have Permission To Access This Device [​IMG]


    When I click Yes:

    You Do Not Have Permission To Access This Device [​IMG]


    When No is clicked:

    You Do Not Have Permission To Access This Device [​IMG]


    I tried to edit options in the group policy editor, but "removable media" is not an option.

    I tried to take ownership using elevated console commands, and no success, it wont even let me run chkdsk on the drive. (also changed drive letter with no success)

    When I go into disk manager, any device I try to access is listed as healthy, my usb drives all have correct space remaining and are FAT32, and not to mention when my devices are plugged into another pc, there is no issue accessing them, so I think its down to my computer.

    One last thing, out of nowhere, uninstalling my usb root hub through device manager and restarting the pc allowed me to access the drives and phones for a very short period of time, then the same issues arose once again and uninstalling/reinstalling the root hub never solved the issue again.

    Sorry for the novel it's just been killing me that I can't get this to work. I know it's probably something stupid simple that I am overthinking or overlooking, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. 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.

    Permission to access network

    Hi Kristen,

    You might be experiencing this issue because you lost permission to access the network resource or shortcut after upgrading your computer. To better assist you with this problem, we would like to know the following information.

    • Are you using the shortcut to access a file or folder located on another computer in the network?
    • Is the file or folder located on the computer that you recently upgraded?
    • What is the exact error message that you received when accessing the shortcut?
    • Are you using a homegroup to share files between devices on your local network?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    In the meantime, let's run the Network troubleshooter. This troubleshooter finds and fixes common connection problems. Here's how:

    • Click Start.
    • Start typing Network problems, and then select
      Identify and repair network problems
      in the results.
    • Follow the steps in the troubleshooter and see if that fixes the problem.

    If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to post a reply.
