Outlook 2003 PST Backup Burned to DVD says You Do Not Have Permission to Access This File?
Posted on 2007-08-01
I am running Outlook 2003 and Win XP Pro. I am burning old PST files onto DVD using Nero Essentials.
If I go into Outlook and Open the files on the hard drive, they open. If I try to perform the same Opening task from the files burned to the DVD, they report the Error Message listed in the Title to this Question.:File Access Denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file G:\example.pst"
If I copy the inaccessible file back to the hard drive, it can be opened/accessed??
I have done this before for years and not experienced this issue.
In loading the PST file, does Outlook need to write to the file?? Is that the issue. Very strange - have not had this happen before. Was always able to access these files on read-only basis from DVD disks as archives - now I would have to copy them back to the HD in order to access the prior data?
Is this a setting in how these are being burned? Or perhaps the program has changed over the years and now it needs to write to the PST file in order to interact with it? Strange that I can open the HD version, but not the identical copy on the DVD? Have done file verification after burn, and it says the data matches
