Windows 7: windows cannot access the specified device path or file.

Windows 7 Home 64
 
 
windows cannot access the specified device path or file.

Hello,
I have an encrypted USB by 'Safend data protection agent'. I have been using this software for some time however yesterday windows gave me the error 'windows cannot access the specified device path or file. you may not have appropriate permissions to access the item'. I tried a system restore as i installed a windows update, but no luck with accessing the drive.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you.

Either your protection agent has gone crazy or there's some autorun app on the USB drive. Format it if you don't care for the contents much.
