Tip

Removing 'Access denied' error from folders and files using Unlocker Assistant


Copying files from one destination to another is a practice that goes on a lot among PC users. Sometimes huge sums of data are moved from one hard disk to another. Now there is this error that happens a lot where, when the mouse icon is placed on a folder, you see 'folder is empty' even though you know that the folder you copied is not empty. When you try to open it, you are told that access denied. Most of the files too may not be accessible and will also give access denied error. This is a frustration that can make one think that his/her files are lost. Well, there are ways out and even though it might take time, it's worth it. The following, is a solution to this problem using the software, Unlocker Assistant;

1. First, you would have to obtain the software on the internet. It's free and you can easily search and download it in a few seconds.

2. Install it by following the instructions and you are ready to go. Now, if you are using Super Copier, Unlocker Assistant may fail to start so if you do, then uninstall the Super Copier for the time you would use the Unlocker Assistant. You can install it back when done.

3. Now create a folder on another drive with enough space, different from the one with file and folder errors.

4. Now right-click a folder (one with access denied and empty folder error) and select 'Unlocker'. Among the list of actions, you select move and select the folder you created as destination. If the moving goes through, a success message will show and state that object was moved which means everything in that folder is fully unlocked and is accessible.

5. If the moving does not go through, it will ask you if you would like to move the object the next time you restart. If so, select no. Now refresh and check the folder again and you will see that this time, it is not empty and it is accessible. Now open the folder and repeat the same thing with all other sub-folders. Now this might take time depending on the number of folders you have so you might want to ignore folders that you do not need.

6. Now after you have unlocked the folders, you come to the files in the folders. Select all the files in the folder and right-click and select move. Create the same folder name at the destination for easy recognition. All the files will moved. If the file sizes are very big, you might want to take a little at a time but if they are all small, then you may select all.

7. Now every file that is moved by Unlocker is now accessible. Pictures, movies and all other file types can now be accessed. After everything, you may then move the files back to the disk that had the file and folder errors.

That is all. You are done. Hope this was helpful.

When i try to install a critical update it was denied access by 7 zip. even after uninstalling 7 zip and installing winzip i still get the same response when trying to install updates 7 zip access denied....


Install Winrar, Here is the link

http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar391.exe

if you double click the file,the files will be extracted in the temp folder,so after installing winrar,right click on the file and select extract here. and try to install the update now,

Sometime when you extract files and it contains Malware or Trojan,Anti-Virus which support real time scan just block the files and the access denied message is displayed.

Scan the extracted files before installing so that you know it's Virus free.

Sometimes,even if you have administrator right,sometimes due to malware infection, you are denied access to some system hidden giles like folder under Local settings.

you need to make the sure that your router is a private one password protected and they all have to be connected to the router at the time and set it to home when you connect to the network or in the network and sharing area

Can not save a file or move a file to my desktop in vista.


Your account permissions are not set correctly. You need to change them so the account you are having problems with has the correct permissions. One way to do that is found here.

Device driver will not install; error msg "Access Denied"


Ok so i was searching around the internet and found a similar problem with another monitor so for giggles i tried there method. This is the website where i found it : http://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/itprovistahardware/thread/d7c0e5bd-2fcf-48ff-a79b-c157014fc821/#page:3

The Second Entry has a download. Download it then extract the files to the desktop. Dont worry if you get errors when the program runs it will fix them, if they come up just press enter to keep going. Once the program completes install the driver again and it should work as it did for me.

If you cant get to that website heres the post from it:
"Ok, once again i checked updates for HP My Display/Drivers, and found this:
http://www.portrait.com/dtune/hpw/enu/support_help.html

Here is a direct link to fix for "Access Denied" issue (HP LCD Monitors & Vista):
http://download.portrait.com/DRVFix.zip

Download DRVFix.zip. The fix contains 3 files including this readme. All must be in to the same folder.
  • readme.txt - This file
  • RestoreDisp.exe - Executable required to restore permissions. DO NOT RUN THIS FILE
  • DVRFIX.exe - Run this file in Administrator mode after reading the instructions completely
To perform the fix do the following:
  1. Extract all files in to a folder on your desktop
  2. Open the folder, right click on the DVRFIX.exe file and choose "Run As Administrator"
  3. Follow the on screen instructions. When complete, you should be able to install your drivers

If you find this helpful, please let me know.

I fixed this issue manually (from registry), about month ago.
But gladly i found this help file, by mistake. emotion-1.gif

Network access denied


Follow the steps to Sharing the files

Your computers are already connected to a network — i.e., they’re all already able to browse the Internet using the same router..

1 : Open the Network and Sharing Center window by clicking on the Windows orb in the lower left corner, and then either right-clicking on Network and selecting “Properties”, or opening the Control Panel and double-clicking “Network and Sharing Center.
2 : If your network type is “Public,” you need to change it to “Private”:
  1. To the right of the network name and location type, click Customize.
  2. In the Set Network Location dialog box, click Private, and then click Next.
  3. In the Successfully set network settings dialog box, click Close.
3 : Under “Sharing and Discovery” in the bottom half of the Network and Sharing Center window, you need to turn all the settings from “Off” to “On” by clicking on the down arrow next to each setting, clicking on “Turn on …”, and clicking on “Apply.” But see some pointers below:
  1. For the “Password protected sharing” setting: you may want to leave this “On” or turn “Off” at your discretion. (I turned mine off.)
  2. For the “Public folder sharing” setting:
    1. If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files, but not create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open files. This is the default setting.
    2. But if you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files and also create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open, change, and create files.
4 : You’re done with the Network and Sharing Center window. Close it via the “X” button.
5 : Click the Windows orb at the lower left corner of your computer, and click on Computer
6 :
n the Computer window, navigate to the folder containing the file(s) or folder(s) that you want to share — e.g., “Pictures” or “Documents” or a specific file or folder within. Note: don’t open the folder itself that you want to share — just navigate to the folder that contains this folder.
7 : Right-click the folder that you want to share, and then click Share. The File Sharing window is displayed. (Click picture for a larger version.)
8 : If you have password protected sharing enabled: Use the File Sharing window to select which users can access the shared folder and their permission level. To allow all users, select Everyone in the list of users. By default, the permission level for a selected user is Reader. Users cannot change files or create new files in the share. To allow a user to change files or folders or create new files or folders, select Co-owner as the permission level.
9 : If you have password protected sharing disabled (like I do): Click the drop-down arrow inside the blank field in the File Sharing window, and select the Guest or Everyone account. Click “Add.” Then for that new account, click on the down arrow under “Permission Level” to change it to Co-owner (if you want anybody to read and modify files) or leave it at “Reader” (if you want other computers to just read but not modify your files).
10 : Click “Share”, then “Done.”


CRITICAL NOTE: If you selected “Everyone” when sharing a folder, you’re also making its contents available to any computer that joins this network. Many households, including mine, have wireless Internet via a wifi router. If you don’t have WEP encryption turned on, then I could just drive up and park on the street near your home, open my laptop, let it join your network via your wifi, and then nose around through your files. It’s particularly important that you have WEP encryption turned on for your wifi network.

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?

Unable to share printer


You need to go into the machine that manages the printer and allow the access denied machine access or to share printer. You may have to run the network setup wizard in order for the machines to recognize each other.
