Good morning everybody,
I have a little problem with my pc. I can't acces any folder or the control panel in the admin account. It's a windows 7 and when I click to open a folder, it says: "windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. Could you please help me to solve this problem? I have important documents and I do not want to lose them.
Take care and
Thank you for helping me.

Hello,

Try this 1

Try adding a permissions to it.

Click on Start --> In search box, type cmd. When the cmd appears in the

search list, right-click on it and select "Run as administrator".

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

Here I assume your folder is in the F-Drive.

takeown /f f: --> Press Enter.

icacls f: /grant username:f --> Press Enter.

Note : In the above icacls command, replace the word

"username" with your account username.

Good Luck
