"no permission to access this folder"

I did a fresh instal of windows 7 pro 64 bit.

I have only installed AVG, all motherboarddrivers all updates and Chrome browser.

When i plugin my external HD some folder give the error: "you currently have no permission to access this folder"

Now, i can continu and i have permission but every subfolder gives the same problem.

I used security settings to add "everybody" and that works untill i reboot. Then i have to remove "everybody" and this gives some errors (probably because i don't have permissions) and then add "evrybody" but this works only temporarely.
I gave "everybody" full acces!

See if the following works;

Right-click on the drive and select "Properties"
Click "Advanced"
Click "Change Permissions"
Ensure that Administrators is listed (at the very least...if not also your username)
Click the "Replace all child object..." check box
Click "OK"

If that doesn't work, take ownership first:
Right-click on the drive and select "Properties"
Click "Advanced"
Click the "Owner" tab
Click "Edit"
Select your username
Click the "Replace owner on..." check box
Click "OK"
Then go back and perform the first set of steps listed above

First option gave a permission error, 2nd did work for now. Thanks.

OK, visit the following link;

Code 43: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems

I know it says for Windows Server, but it should work with Windows 7 as well

Had the same problem

Found a quick and easy solution

First right click on drive/folder/file whichever is giving the problem.

for me it was my whole drive. Click on properties, securities, then click on advance.

click on system, if you dont have system, add one. (click add then enter system in object name select box, then click on check name, and finally add.)

Once done with that, click on system and use the edit button. Allow everything and click on apply, then check the box that reads "apply these permission to objects and folder within this container only and click ok. still with system highlighted, click replace all child objects with permission from this object, then click apply

This should sort out your problem.
