Hi friends,

There is a problem in my computer so I am seeking help from you. I am using windows XP service pack 3. It has been a long time when I am using this operating system. Recently I have added an extra hard drive to my computer. It was an old hard drive. I have collected it from my friends. The problem is some of the files I can't not open or delete from this hard drive. It shows an error. The error is given>>
 
ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED
 
5 (0x5)
 
Now this made me really odd. Any perfect suggestion will make me really happy.

Hi Dear,

This error shows access denied means it shows that you don't have permission to logon to the remote system. For this purpose the credentials must be a member of one of the following groups on the remote machine: Administrators, Powers Users, Users, Server Operators, Account Operators, Backup Operators, Print Operators and if the remote system is using window XP then it may be simple only for file sharing and it does not allow you to remotely install/remove/start/stop the DMRC Client Agent Service. "Simple File Sharing" cannot be turned off in Windows XP Home, therefore you must manually install the DMRC Client Agent Service on machines running Windows XP Home.
 
Once the DMRC Client Agent Service has been installed, then you should be able to use the "Encrypted (128 bit) Windows Logon authentication method to connect to this machine. For this purpose you need to Update the driver of the files. Use the Device Manager to uninstall and reinstall the appropriate device.
 
Run wizard in the Add New Hardware in Control Panel.

Hey man, it’s just because of permissions set previously on the mentioned drive. It is using permissions of the users and operating system previously installed on the drive, and your system is not identifying all that stuff. If you have some important data on it to copy reset its permissions by performing following steps.

Right click on drive->click sharing and security in security tab select the user by which you are logged in (it must belong to administrator group) and assign all permissions to that user. Else just format the disk which will automatically assign you the ownership and will not raise this issue.

I hope it is perfect suggestion to make you really happy.
