Access is denied in Vista
Posted on 2007-12-05
I'm trying to use my Seagate External HD (worked fine with XP), but on my Vista computer it just makes clicking noises and is not recognized.
I did some searching on the Internet and someone found that deleting a file INFCACHE.1 solved this problem.
I tried deleting the file, but the system won't let me - I don't have permission. So I tried giving myself permission (I'm the administrator and the only user), but I get an error message:
An error occurred while applying security information to Windows\inf.
Access is denied.
