Before you can make unrestricted edits to the Access Control List (ACL) of an object, you should take owership of that object first.

You can do so by running the following command in an elevated command prompt,
Code:
takeown /f "E:\"
Or if you want to take ownership of all child items within a folder or drive,
Code:
takeown /f "E:\" /r
After doing this, you are free to make permission changes to that drive without being denied access.
Hi Pyprohly,

I tried that but it did not work for me:

C:\Windows\system32>takeown /f "E:\" /r
ERROR: File or Directory not found.

C:\Windows\system32>e:

E:\>takeown /f "E:\" /r
ERROR: File or Directory not found.
I am 100% sure it was an elevated command prompt.

I was logged in as myself; i.e. a user with administrator privileges.

Perhaps I should login as admin?
Oops. My bad. Here:
Code:
takeown /f "E:" /r

Some people are weird and never shut down their phones or computers is why I asked.
Going a week without shutting down is weird to me

I tend to always agree with you (pestware earlier, shutting down now). LOL

It is on for a week cos I have to connect to it from abroad. Otherwise I always turn it off. Good boy.


This, however, does not solve my problem.

Maybe try clean boot to see if another program/ utility is messing with the access,
But as stated make sure your receiving the allow access popup message on the iphone,
If not this would be a iphone issue not a windows issue
See if you can do anything in iTunes
Chers.

Hi TrashZone, I have worked with computers for about 30 years (then why am I on this forum, LOL). It's really, really, really not the iPhone. This is really a desktop permissions issue. But I appreciate your input!

To obtain elevated permissions you actually have to right click on the shortcut for the application (in this case command prompt) and select run as administrator even if you are running an admin account. As for permissions you need to give a standard user ownership to the folder in question and full control either to the users group or granted only to the account. With admin accounts the only problem would be if a permission is explicitly denied.

You might want to try the following program for accessing data on the iphone. It is very useful. iFunBox for Windows | File Manager, Browser, Explorer, Transferer for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch
