Error 0x80070522

I keep my tax OS on a separate drive which I restore every year and boot up to do our taxes. This year when I restored it, I can't write to the C: drive and get this message:
"ERROR: 0x80070522: A required privilege is not held by this client."
What did I do wrong? I haven't had this problem in the past.
I'm using the BIBM v1.28a. OS is Windows 7 Premium and up-to-date.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Bob Sanders

Looks like a Windows permissions issue. Check that C: is C: and the
permissions of where you want to save. Also run chkdsk /f on it.

Verified it is drive C: and I ran chkdsk /f on it and rebooted. No errors. I set ownership to Bob (my user name) and rebooted. It came back as ADMINISTRATOR-BOB. Still can't save any files to it. Same error message.
I made the image with BIBM also as I have had permissions problems with IFW in the past .
Any other ideas? No apparent help from Google.
Thanks,

Windows gives you an option to test permissions on a folder / file -
properties, security, advanced, effective permissions.

I'm not sure exactly how to test permissions, but I ran across an article on Google and did the procedure below substituting c: for d:


How to fix Error 0x80070522: A required privilege is not held by the client in Windows 7
Error 0x80070522: A required privilege is not held by the client

Solution

1. Reboot into Safe Mode.

2. Log on as Administrator.

3. Click Start

4. Type the three letters cmd

5. Press Ctrl+Shift+Enter

6. Run the process as Administrator.

7. Type the following commands and press Enter after each:

takeown /f d:\ /a /r /d y
cacls d:\ /t /c /g administrators:F System:F everyone:F
(Answer "yes" when prompted "Are you sure?")

The commands will make you the owner of drive D: and will give full access to everyone to all of its folders.

Still made no difference.

Problem solved!! It was operator error. I keep my data and tax apps in a separate file on the C:\ drive encrypted by TrueCrypt. Since TrueCrypt is now defunct, I switched to VeraCrypt which was opening my data and apps file as a read-only partition. To test my C:\ drive, was simply copying a file to the root which Windows won't let you do unless it is done with administrative rights and giving me the error message. When I realized what I was doing, I simply ran VeraCrypty as an administrator and the partition opened as a read-write partition and I was back in business. :oops: :oops:

I am posting this as an aid to someone else that may have the same (or similar) problem.

Thanks for your input and thoughts.
