Windows 7: Text editors can't access the system drive

Text editors can't access the system drive

I have a strange problem with the text editors. ConText and Eclipse are not allowed to read and write on the system drive. I get ""Drive not accessable: Access is denied message " I tried to run as administrator and reinstall. Word Wordpad and Notepad++ don't have this problem Yesterday I ran a virus scan and updated my firewall. Windows 7 Ultimate x32.

The easiest way to fix this is to do a system restore. This should fix the problem.

I haven't used text editors for a while so I'm not sure to which date to restore any other ways to do this ?

Try running SFC /Scannow in Elevated Command Prompt and see if that does anything.

You may also want to run a repair install.

Does this problem persist with any other programs?

Nope. Dreamweaver opens files on the system drive Notepad++ and Word too. All players open files on the system drive

Windows found some problems but was unable to fix them


EDIT: Uninstalled again and rad the installer as administrator and launch the editor as administrator everytime. Works for both Eclipse and ConText. Hope it's fixed now . Thanks for helping

You require admin access for system folder. Run the editor as an administrator by right clicking on it first and choosing "run as Administrator".


EDIT: Ah sorry, I misread and I see you've already done that... stand by I now you owe you something else.

I'm glad you fixed it.

As you are new to the forum I thought you might like to know how to mark threads as solved as well as the uses of some of the other buttons.

To the top right of this post you will see 3 icons. An orange (+), a set of scales and a red and white warning triangle.

The orange (+) or blue (-) denotes whether a user is on or offline (orange = on, blue = off).

The scales are used to give rep points; click this button if someone has helped you significantly or solved your queries (only give this to posts that you think really deserve it).

The red and white warning triangle is used to denote either an abusive post OR to mark a thread as solved (just put solved in the box that comes up and the admins or moderators will mark it solved).

I'll mark it solved this time.
