File Access Denied - You require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file RRS feed

  • Question

  • I run into this problem often. When working with Photoshop files (PSD in the most recent case), sometimes when I make a change and then try to save the changes I come up with this error dialog. My work flow is always the same - I am the computer's administrator. I am the only person with access to this computer. There are no other users on this computer. This computer is not tied to any server or network. My files are generated from my own work obtained from my camera. I normally save changes to the file several times so I won't lose my work. I can save the file using a different name, but then I cannot delete the original file unless I reboot the computer and open it up again. Please explain why this randomly reoccurs.

    When did the issue start to occur ?The issue only occur with the specific software ?Have you tried to change another location to saved file or reopen the software (end the software process from the task manager)to have a check ?
    This issue is a little weired,please take the following steps to have a check .
    1.Run "sfc /scannow" to check the health of the system files .
    2.Perform a full scan with an antivirus software .
    3.Perform a clean boot to verify whether there is a third party conflict here.

    4.Create a new administrator and login with it to have a check.There is a possibility that the present account profile has corrupted.
     
    If the issue only occurred with the specific software ,it is also recommended to ask for help from the software developer .

  • Turn off the preview pane in windows explorer - this causes the file to be locked.
