Unable to delete files in maxtor onetouch iii mini


Access can be denied for several reasons - if the file is in use or even part of it - try dragging the folder or file to your desk top and then delete it

Access is denied is typically a security/sharing violation. If your on the administrative account on the 7 machine – adjust the security of drive. From my computer right click on the drive go to properties. You will have to click on each of the user groups and modify the security settings you wish. Also on the advanced tab should be an option to take control of the drive.

My 320GB External hard drive is showing access denied when I click on it.


the file you need is called takeownership you have to google for it as it's in one of the forums the file is in the form of a zip file and when extracted you select the takeownership and install a little code into your reg and when you select a folder right mouse button on it and select takeownership this willl get rid of access denied garbage and give you full control over the folder and you do the same on any hard drive.

hope this will solve problems of access denied

Accessing a folder.


This will sound off the wall, but we had something similar to this happen with my last laptop, where it was "access denied" in lots of areas, and we would have to find little backdoor ways to get into control panel and document files. The problem with our computer was that it had previously crashed, and we had rebooted and reinstalled the xp, but didn't have the registration number, so it would run ok, but to get into all those access denied things (which you eventually need to get into) we had to come up with our registration number.
Did it prompt you to enter the product key when you re-installed it?
